This handmade Tiffany Sterling Silver shot glass (c.1960) is worth no more than the price of the silver ($19/oz.) — to several silver dealers we spoke with recently. One said that people are buying Tiffany more for the box than for what’s inside.
Much of what had value (and price) in America years ago is worth nothing today.
The Waldorf Astoria, as it is presently known, will be no more as of March 1, 2017.
NY NOW, billed as “the market for home, lifestyle and gift,” is at the Javits Center through August 24, 2016.
Of special note at this year’s show are chocolates from Louis Sherry (NYC), and products from Taiwan, especially those made by David Hsu, with Treether — a hybrid wood/leather material.
We also recommend Whodini Sisters Bloody Mary Potion for cocktail seasoning and marinade.
Happy to offer two splendid twentieth-century works of American art.

The opening of a new Dunkin Donuts in Woodside (4 stores within 16 blocks of each other), included placing a company sign on a poll that has been a memorial for a Filipino man murdered on the same spot.
No doubt the new Dunkin Donuts will have a similar effect on the Filipino bakeries along that part of Roosevelt Ave., known as Little Manila. One wonders why city planners are so uninspired in their approval of such business zoning. Perhaps they would say “Dunkin Donuts is better than nothing”—which given the rent situation (that politicians also helped to create) has resulted in substantial commercial vacancies and made starting a small business in NYC undoable for most, except for the 200+ Dunkin Donuts franchisees in Queens.
Lotus Editions is offering a set of vintage ashtrays from The Four Seasons restaurant (now closed), with matchboxes. They were made in Japan, most likely in the 60s. For pricing information contact: email@example.com
One day after The Four Seasons Restaurant, a modernist monument once considered the most important restaurant in the world, auctioned off the last of its Philip Johnson banquettes and Mies Van der Rohe chairs—and turned off the lights, president Obama told the DNC, the US is “stronger and more prosperous than when we started.” Mr. Obama likes to take credit for saving the country from the Great Recession of 2008-09, when in fact all he did was to create another bubble, instructing others to: change the accounting rules (allowing Wall Street to run wild again), print and borrow trillions of dollars, and fudge the unemployment numbers. The result was not a recovery but rather a country in the twilight zone, a failed thug-state that undermines humanity (starting with consciousness) and world peace.
In America’s garages, innovation is leading to liquidation.
A Steve Madden pop-up sale, in a Woodside parking lot, attracted motivated shoppers from far and wide.
It’s easy to lose one’s balance — with much of the Latin American contemporary art up for auction this week in NYC. Those seeking artwork — more grounded in essential truths, might consider Mujer Meditando (bottom), by Mexican muralist Gilberto Ramirez (c.1963), available through Lotus Editions.
