PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF BARBARA ANSPACH Known for “…her great taste, sense of style and history, and passion for the arts” [N.Y. Times, October 2014], Barbara “Bobbie” Anspach and her husband Andrew helped make her family’s hotel, The Algonquin, the storied New York City landmark it remains today. An inveterate traveler, her deep affection for the city of London and for the friends she made there inspired her collection of 18th century English ceramics. Actively seeking prime examples from respected British and New York antiquarians and collectors, many of her prized 'pots' are those used to illustrate the standard literature in the field.
