Founded in 1965, Hyde Park Antiques, Ltd. specializes in the finest 18th and early 19th century English furniture. The gallery offers both the experienced collector and the interested novice the opportunity to view the most extensive inventory in North America. Dealing exclusively in period antiques, there is an emphasis on the Georgian and Regency periods. Our large collection spans the most interesting eras in British design: from early walnut furniture, with its emphasis on burled wood, through the Age of Mahogany, with its bold carving, to the Regency period, during which exotic woods were introduced and gilt metal mounts created some of the most glamorous furniture ever created. To complement the furniture, Hyde Park also offers a wide selection of Chinese export porcelain and English ceramics, as well as a varied collection of paintings which include sporting and marine art, landscapes and still-lifes.
Art Fairs & Shows
The Winter Antiques Show
The 2018 Show will be held from January 19th to January 28th, in New York City.
The Winter Antiques Show is the most prestigious antiques show in America, featuring the “best of the best” from antiquities through the 1960s. Held at the historic Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the Show provides curators, established collectors, dealers, design professionals and first-time buyers with opportunities to view and purchase exceptional pieces showcased by 73 exhibitors. One-third of the Show's exhibitors are specialists in Americana, with the rest featuring English, European, and Asian fine and decorative arts.
From ancient Roman glass through mid-century Modern, every object exhibited at the Winter Antiques Show is vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a committee of 160 experts from the United States and Europe. The strict vetting regulations and the vettors' expertise ensure that buyers can purchase with confidence.
The Winter Antiques Show is an annual benefit for East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx. East Side House's programs focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity. All revenues from the show's general admissions and the net proceeds from the preview parties and other events go East Side House and contribute substantially to its private philanthropic budget.
