The holiday season is here and now is the time to start thinking about our gift lists! I made good inroads into mine recently at The Frick Gift Shop. This is a brilliant place to find a select group of fantastic gifts that are not only super chic and unique but also very well priced. Some of my favorite items are the Frick mansion blueprint mug and tray; the Frick collection tin plates based on Chinese and Sevres porcelain plates at the Frick (it’s no surprise these were featured in VOGUE); the wonderful coffee table book Art in the Frick Collection : Paintings, Sculpture, Decorative Arts; and the Riesener Tin Pencil Box (filled with colored pencils) with a detail on the lid of a marquetry commode made for Marie Antoinette.
I love that these offerings are all inspired by actual pieces from the Frick collection. So not only are you getting wonderful and well priced gifts, but your purchases help support and promote the Frick!
These and many other gifts are all available either at the gift shop or online. Also please note today -Tuesday, December 1, there is a special holiday shopping day!
