Featured work by Cohen & Cohen, Booth 49

Among the dozens of stunning Chinese export porcelain on view at Cohen & Cohen’s booth, we were drawn to this elegant covered Qianlong Period piece decorated with elaborate famille rose motifs.


Featured work by Arader Galleries, Booth 62

Truly remarkable works on paper were on view at Arader Galleries, including one of the most significant maps in American history. A star work by John James Audubon took pride of place in the installation.


Featured work by Kelly Kinzle, Booth 19

Kelly Kinzle at the Winter Antiques Show was bursting with color and life, bringing a new twist to traditional 19th-century works. The booth offered just some of the fair’s many highlights in Folk art and Americana, including an early wooden rooster weathervane from the Gibbel-Kreider Farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (circa 1845).


Featured work by Les Enluminures, Booth 6

Mini everything. Who could resist strolling through Les Enluminures’ booth of breathtakingly vibrant illuminated manuscripts – some small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. This extraordinary example dates to 1490.


Featured work by Hostler Burrows, Booth 26

For modern aesthetes, there’s Hostler Burrows, an elegant mix of sleek 20th- and 21st-century furnishings and décor. We were enamored with the stunning shadow-play cast by ceramicist Kristina Riska’s “Untitled (Basket),” 2015, smartly juxtaposed with a 1930s oak cabinet by Axel Einar Hjorth.
