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!!!

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!

Harp

Concert Harps are stunning to listen to, Celtic harps have a great quality to their audio and folk harps are great fun to learn how to play. Harps are a great instrument whether a child is learning or an adult is perfecting their harp hand and collecting some fine examples of harps.  We appreciate great sound at collectables now, and we also appreciate great sounding harps Рtoday we see their addition to our ranks of quality collectables, filed nicely under musical instruments!

Art Deco Items

Considered by many to be the ultimate in combination of design and graphical techniques, Art deco is a phrase which covers many areas of design. The grand combination of Cubism, Futurism and around 10 other concepts (depending on who you ask), Art Deco is the sum of the art movement within the 1920s through 1940′s that has inspired countless creative concepts in the past centurys. Art Deco items populate the world as we know it, with art deco furniture, art deco architecture and art deco paintings commonplace. We may not realise but art deco has affected our lives to this day with buildings, graphics and even cars being influenced by the efforts of the art community with Art deco. Today we have added an art deco section to Collectables now so have a look now!
