Beaux-Arts Classic Products in the HBO Gilded Age Series
The Gilded Age is an upcoming historical drama television series created by Julian Fellowes for HBO that is set in the United States during the Gilded Age, the boom years of 1880s New York City.
According to Fellowes: “To write The Gilded Age is the fulfillment of a personal dream, I have been fascinated by this period of American history for many years and now NBC has given me the chance to bring it to a modern audience. I could not be more excited and thrilled. The truth is, America is a wonderful country with a rich and varied history, and nothing could give me more pleasure than to be the person to bring that compelling history to the screen.”
In May 2019, the series moved from NBC to HBO, with a straight to series order The series is scheduled to premiere on January 24, 2022, and consist of nine episodes.

Chateau-sur-Mer – is one of the first grand mansions of the Gilded Age in Newport, Rhode Island. Located at 424 Bellevue Avenue, it is now owned by the Preservation Society of Newport County and is open to the public as a museum. It is currently closed to the public.
