love is all around us

WE COULD LEARN A lot from Nicholas Lowry. Lowry, the president and principal auctioneer of New York’s Swann Auction Galleries is the focus of our cover story on skiing travel posters beginning on page 50. When it comes to travel posters of any kind, he’s the man. Lowry’s understanding and knowledge is unparalleled. But writing that, while accurate, sounds much too stuffy for a man who sports a handlebar mustache and whose enthusiasm for plaid three-piece suits is abundant. To describe his suits as colorful is a disservice. They practically vibrate. If you watch Antiques Roadshow, the long-running PBS TV show, you know Lowry. He’s been on the show for 23 years. And while longevity matters, I get the feeling you’d remember him if you only saw him once. Flamboyant, witty and likable, Lowry…

in a pig’s ear

Whimsy and wonder highlighted Sotheby’s recent Americana Auction, “A New Dimension of Tradition: Important American Folk Art.” On the wonder front we were delighted by the Edward Hicks’ (1780-1849) portrait of Andrew Jackson, circa 1832. The oil on canvas, laid on board painting measures 21-1/2 inches by 19-3/4 inches and sold for $106,250. Although nearly 190 years old, the painting, with its vibrant colors and Jackson’s 1960s style wire-rim glasses, has an almost pop art vibe to it. As for whimsy, it’s difficult to beat the large papier-mâché standing pig supported on a red painted tin can affixed to a wooden platform. The pig, which stands 25 inches tall and is 48 inches wide, was originally found in Augusta, Wis. It sold for $750.…

SAN JOSE, Calif. — With the new decade upon us, eBay took a retrospective look back at the top trends and events that shaped our online shopping carts every year since Y2K, according to search and sales data.

folk art piece is quite unusual

Q My name is Bob Britton and I’m a new subscriber of your magazine. These photos are from my “mystery piece” I purchased it at my local Goodwill store a few years ago. The piece was covered in multiple thick layers of paint! Here’s what it looks now. The space between the “arms” is too narrow to be a chair, even for a child, plus the legs aren’t strong enough to support much weight at all. I’ve asked dealers and other antique savvy people what they think and it leaves them scratching their heads! Any help would greatly be appreciated. P.S. I really look forward to getting my magazine every other week. Bob Britton A First of all, I would like to say thank you for becoming a new subscriber to Antique Trader magazine! Your…

architectural treasures are rescued from legendary waldorf astoria hotel

NEW YORK — The legendary Art Deco-influenced Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which opened in 1931 on Park Avenue, New York, has hosted many historic events, U.S. presidents, foreign dignitaries and even some famous celebrities such as Liz Taylor and Frank Sinatra, according to Kevin Browne of Olde Good Things, the architectural salvage company called in to extract architectural elements from the prestigious ‘Towers,’ suites and ballrooms of the hotel. Closed in 2017 for a two-year renovation, The New York Landmarks Preservation Commission voted in to protect a number of the Waldorf’s public spaces like the hotel’s grand ballroom, a large floor mosaic “Wheel of Life” by the French artist Louis Rigal that adorns an entry hall and the entire main lobby bedecked in black marble pillars and ceiling reliefs. Some of the rescued…
