Yes, There Will Be a New York Antique Ceramics Fair

Nine dealers will show their wares at the New York Antique Ceramics Fair on the third floor of Bohemian National Hall, 321 East 73rd Street, New York City, Thursday through Saturday, January 17-19, 2019, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, January 20, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The nine dealers are Martyn Edgell Antiques, Garry Atkins, Jane Antoinette Gaynor of Antoinette’s Heirlooms, and Mark J. West from the U.K.; Martine Boston from Ireland; Leon-Paul van Geenen from the Netherlands; and Paul Vandekar of Earle D. Vandekar of Knightsbridge, A.J. Warren of Maria and Peter Warren Antiques, and Robert P. Walker of Polka Dot Antiques LLC from the U.S.

“There is no admission fee,” said Robert Walker, who secured the venue. He worked with Boruta Consulting, an event-planning company.

“There is no incentive to make a profit from the event, just a profit from what we sell,” Walker volunteered. “The costs are split according to the size of the stand. It is a boutique antiques fair, highly specialized, just British and European ceramics and glass.”

Walker said, “If it is a success and continues next year, we can think about expanding it. It is all about antiques, not about contemporary ceramics. We toyed with calling it the ‘Garry Atkins and Friends Show’ and then thought better of it.”
