Antiques Considered - January 18, 2012

Returning to last week’s theme of the Washington Winter Antique Show, I spoke with another dealer whom I had not known previously.  His name is William Adair, and he operates Gold Leaf Studios in Washington.

His exhibit showed the full panoply of frames that his firm has restored.  The business covers the gamut of framing options, making sure that the proper surround is present for each work of art.

The business has the capability to restore or replicate any possible frame, including the carving of intricate woodwork, the matching of delicate gold leafing and tempura finishes, and the refitting of older frames to be “married” to paintings or bas reliefs.  I stood in awe of the masterful projects they have undertaken.

Last year I mentioned Janice Paull, an English lady who specializes in English Ironstone China.  She has shops in Portugal and in Woodbury. Connecticut.  Her display was as impressive as last year’s, and she clearly enjoys sharing her wealth of knowledge with visitors.

Stanley Shapiro, a dealer from New Jersey, came again this year with his wonderful array of all types of great American antiques.  He too likes to tell patrons of the research he has accomplished on each of his pieces, and never is too busy to chat.

The Washington Winter Show raises funds for several great charities in the Washington area.  Although I miss the old venue at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, the present setting at American University’s Katzen Center affords free parking in the building, and interesting perspectives for the display of some of the finest antiques and works of art available on the market today.

The show always is the first full weekend in January, and I suggest that antique aficionados, whether experts or novices, plan to be there next year.  It is already on my 2013 calendar!

Happy Antiquing!
