Nelson and Nelson was recently invited for the third consecutive year to exhibit at the Palm Beach Fine Art and Antique Fair which took place at the Palm Beach Convention Center in February.
This highly prestigious event has become the most important destination fair for art and antiques in the United States and has also earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the most important art and antiques shows in the world. It includes 100 art and antiques dealers, representing the very finest specialists from all over the world in the fields of contemporary art and sculpture, Old Master paintings, and antique sterling silver and jewelry, all personally selected by a committee and participating by invitation only.
Nelson and Nelson was proud to exhibit an impressive collection of very important antique American and European sterling silver items, including unique Tiffany sterling silver and mixed metal objects of exceptional quality, and also magnificent items from the highly collectable "Martele" line of superb hand-made items by Gorham. An extremely important museum quality 3-handled loving cup from this selection sold quickly. This unique and stunning piece was magnificently decorated all over with a remarkable design of swirling water, mermaids and dolphins and rested upon 3 feet in the form of dolphin heads, artfully attached to bodies which rose upwards to form the handles. It was hand-made by two of Gorham's most pre-eminent silversmiths and was presented to Philip Washburn Moen, a prominent Massachusetts wire manufacturer, by his business colleagues in 1903.
Nelson and Nelson also exhibited a superb and note-worthy collection of 19th Century 18 karat gold Renaissance Revival jewelry set with diamonds, rubies, and pearls and decorated with colorful enamel, all of which generated a very positive response and great interest from the Fair's patrons.
During the course of the show, Nelson and Nelson had the and privilege and pleasure of meeting Princess Michael of Kent who purchased some particularly beautiful items including some very fine pieces by Cartier and a particularly handsome oversized etched glass vase enhanced by sterling silver overlay decoration.
The Fair was extremely well-attended and Nelson and Nelson was honored to have been included again amongst the world's most elite fine art and antiques dealers together with the discerning connoisseurs who made the show such a resounding success.
