Antique Furniture – Better than New?

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

Antique Furniture Sale

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!!!

First Edition Books: Hemingway

You may not even realise it, the fact you own a first edition. Lurking on bookshelves and hiding in cupboards, first edition books look typically like any other, its only within the sleeve or first few pages that you can discover the true origins of the book. First prints are usually worth a few quit more than the reprints, the older the more the difference. Some first edition books have been known to go at auction for millions of pounds. Better check out the Collectables Now First edition books section now eh?

Pewter – A Misunderstood Metal

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

Pewtard TankardI always thought Pewter was a stone – Very wrong. Pewter is a type of metal, like silver or gold. Famous for having a huge variety of tankards, hip flasks and other drinking vessels made from it – Pewter provides a tarnish free alternative to traditional metals. The Variety of Pewter antiques and Collectables is largely substantial and always fun to take some time out and look at. They are all usually well marked with date stamps and make a great collectable item, because you can use them to drink or eat from – as pewter items do not tarnish – making them long lasting antiques.
