Victorians – Inventors and Collectors

Victorian Collectables

Rather than look at complete era’s we usually try to break down collections to the smallest possible here at collectables-now, however the victorian era has brought about so many different Victorian collectables that we think it needs one big collection category itself, where you can find all the usual Victorian collectables and antiques you would expect, as well as a whole lot you wouldn’t. We may at a later stage look more in depth at each type of collectable from queen victoria’s era, but for now you will have to enjoy just our Victorian category!

Stamp Collector?

Collectable Stamps

I personally never saw stamp collecting as more than a business. I always knew I could buy high quality rare stamps online and also knew that there was a local base of high end collectors around london, so dedicating a part of the antiques and collectables shop to stamps was no more than a clever business idea. However Collectable Stamps turned out to be a fun and interesting pastime, each stamp has been somewhere, done something – and more so represents a period in history and a postal system ruled by a monarchy – stamp collecting is more fun than you would think!
