The Winter Antiques Show is celebrating its 60th Year Diamond Jubilee—and one can only call it a diamond jubilee if it's attached to royalty. As such, the 10-day Show is featuring a special diamond exhibit, including Queen Victoria's diamond and sapphire tiara. Taking cues from the theme, our PR team is happy to share its "royal flush" in The New York Times, with stories in several sections.
In Thursday, January 23's issue, The New York Times' Home section shows off library steps that are being exhibited by R & Company, a new dealer to the Show, in the coveted "Currents" roundup of home goods. The steps, designed by Wendell Castle, add a flair to the show's lineup of items ranging from antiquities to mid-century.
The following issue, Friday, January 24, dedicates a glowing FULL PAGE review in the arts section. The Times' Roberta Smith captures the thrill and discovery associated with the "cornucopia of objects made to provide some combination of pleasure, comfort and utility." Several dealers are lauded for their unique and impressive objects, with four images to illustrate.
And Sunday Styles wouldn't be complete without photos from the iconic Bill Cunningham, who reports on the Show's Opening Night Party in the Sunday, January 26 issue. Folks with the most eye-catching and memorable fashions are featured, with even an antique dress on exhibit making its way into the "Evening Hours" roundup.
