Winter Antiques Show Celebrates the Peabody Essex Museum

. August 21, 2013

The Winter Antiques Show celebrates its 59th year as America’s most distinguished antiques show, featuring exceptional objects exhibited by 73 specialists in American, English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts from antiquity through the 1960s, all vetted for authenticity. The 2013 Honorary Chairs are Mr. and Mrs. Claudio Del Vecchio and Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill.

The 2013 loan exhibition will celebrate The Preservation Society of Newport County. Newport: The Glamour of Ornament showcases fine and decorative art from The Breakers, Marble House, The Elms, Rosecliff, Chateau-sur-Mer, Kingscote, Isaac Bell House, Hunter House, and Chepstow. For the seventeenth year, the loan exhibition is sponsored by
Chubb Personal Insurance.

All net proceeds from the Show benefit East Side House Settlement, which provides access to quality education and technology training as gateways out of poverty to students in the South Bronx, one of the nation’s poorest congressional districts. Their goal is to help motivated students graduate from high school, enroll in college, and build the skills necessary to secure good jobs.

The Winter Antiques Show hours are 12 p.m.-8 p.m. daily except Sundays and Thursday, 12 p.m.-6 p.m. Daily admission to the Show is $20, which includes the Show’s award-winning catalogue. www.winterantiquesshow.com
