New comer on Columbia street: Waterfront Antiques

About a week ago, a new spot has opened on Columbia Street between Sugar Lounge and the offices of the Brooklyn Greenway. It is an antique consignment store that specializes in European porcelain and glass, as well as ethnic art.

You can also find oil paintings, vintage jewelry, crystal, silverware, sculptures and antique furniture.

The president is Annick Sawaya. Belgian, born in the Congo, she moved to the US when she was 7 years old. Owning shops in Paris and Cannes, Annick has had 15 years experience in antiques. With this new venture, she wishes to make the store a center for Art Deco and Art Nouveau treasures.

The most valuable piece is this painting by Abbott-Fuller Graves, entitled Dusk, and priced at $10,000. But relax, prices of other items start at $15, so you are sure to find a little something for any occasion.

Here is Annick's favorite piece.
A Chinese neo-guardian figure, which was originally made to guard against evil spirits
(from the 18th century, possibly even older).

This was my favorite piece,
(in case anyone wants to get it for me for Christmas. Hint, hint, Chris)
a Navajo sterling silver bracelet.

Come by tomorrow night, Thursday, December 2nd, from 6 to 8 pm, for a wine and cheese opening party and discover Annick's treasures.

Waterfront Antiques is located at 147 Columbia Street - 917.805.2968
