Known around the world as the design and style movement that made a considerable effect on the art culture. Many architects, artists and designers adopted art nouveau styles and during the period just after 1880 a lot of art nouveau items were designed and built, something we should appreciate today as we now have another great collectable to enjoy! You can see a whole lot of art nouveau items for sale on our collectable Art Nouveau Pages now!!!

It is nice to have antique items around your house, thier age reminds you of history and how things change so quickly. Often antique furniture is a prime example of how things can be made to last – you can purchase some pieces of antique furniture that are over 200 years old and still going strong. But not everyone can afford such fantastic furniture! At auction you can however find excellent examples of older furniture and fittings that are of durable excellent quality at a similar price to new but lesser quality furniture. Personally with furniture I think secondhand is great if its a good solid quality piece. You can find a whole range of different antique furniture styles in the so named section of collectables now – just click the antique chair!!!
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!
Military Collectables are available in lots of different forms, from collectable medals awarded for bravery or effort to complete army costume or decommissioned weapons. There is a lot we can learn from previous conflicts, and perhaps through militaria we can develop a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
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!
