Beleaguered art dealer Larry Salander
, whose Salander-O’Reilly Galleries
on East 71st Street on Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side has been padlocked by State Supreme Court justice Richard B. Lowe
amid a flurry of lawsuits claiming fraud, is not only a purveyor of Old Master paintings but also antiques. But now his website, www.salanderdecorativearts.com
, is defunct. Until recently, the site offered everything for the baronial home from period European paneling and mantels (a total of 23 were on offer) along with Austrian parquet floors and 19th-century garden ornaments. It was a mixed bag with "antique" kilim pillows at $50 each. Calls to Salander’s antiques division were not returned.
