HAPPY YEAR OF THE TIGER!

HAPPY YEAR OF THE TIGER!

As we settle into Winter, we wish everyone a very Happy New Year and Year of the Tiger!

Despite the persistent Covid challenges, we are open full-time, we are vaccinated, and we are boostered! 
New York is resilient and the City is certainly open through it all.  And we trust, this current surge will soon be behind us.

Accordingly, we invite you to visit the Gallery when in New York or just in the neighborhood.  We also invite you to view on this site in the Catalogue and Publication sections a fine variety of our current collection.  As always, we welcome your inquiries.

Please note: the Winter [Antiques] Show that was scheduled for later this month is being postponed in connection with the current Omicron surge.  We should know a new date shortly- likely in the early Spring- and will keep you posted.  The March Asia Week and our other shows (Philadephia and Nantucket) remain on track, and we are confident will occur without interruption.

Again, with all best wishes for a Happy and Healthy 2022!

Steven and Andrew Chait
