1st Dibs at 200 Lex

by Liza Laserow

About a year ago the website 1stdibs.com opened their first physical location in New York. In the same building as were our showroom is located the 10th floor was taken over by 53 dealers from 1st Dibs with a mix of modern, traditional and some with contemporary art. Laserow Antiques have a little vignette that we use as a little showcase and change every month. This month we have: A pair of  Swedish Gustavian armchairs in a “Byggmästar modell”  upholstered in a gray and white cotton checkers. They are standing by a late Gustavian secretary ,1800-1810, in mahogany decorated with brass details. On top of the secretary we have places a pair of French brass candlestick lamps with black leather shades and placed a set of 3 chinese ginger jars from the late 18th Century. Behind the ginger jars is a French Louise XVI mirror with a gilt wood frame with leaf tip carvings. The oil on canvas painting is by an unknown artist picturing a young aristocratic gentleman.
