  • New listingBeautiful hand carved Oak Wood Crest Shields 1900s School family Crests?

    Not one but two fabulous antique hand carved wooden shields each different- and each superbly detailed, especially given oak can be tricky to carve in finer detail. These have a school shield look to them whilst I confess I'm not at all sure what they represent, be it a family of official institution, perhaps a school? Both present in fabulous condition as shown and measure approx 20cm x 15cm approx. Combined weight 455 Grams.

Buying Antiques

Antiques have a story to tell. Unlike new items that come straight from the factory, antiques have lived a life and grown more beautiful with age. Just like art, the beauty of any antique is subjective. What one person may find attractive, another may find unattractive and unappealing. Does this matter? It depends on the reason for buying an antique. Some people love to collect antiques because they like the way they look. Other people choose to have antiques around the house because they provide interesting design elements and often become talking pieces.   For those antique collectors, it’s usually more about looks and design rather than value. Yes, antiques are old, but not all of them are valuable. Does that matter when they are only being chosen for their looks? Not really. If an antique lover likes a certain piece, then how much it would sell for isn’t really an issue. On the other hand, there are plenty of antique collectors who buy antiques for their potential value. This may mean those antiques are valuable now, or they have the potential to become valuable in the future. For antique collectors who buy antiques for their value, it pays to know what to look for. That means knowing what style of antiques are on-trend and selling for more money, which antiques are likely to hold their value over time, and which antiques are real – and which are fake. 

Buying Antiques Online

Home to a vast array of antiques, eBay is an antique buyer’s delight. Allowing for easy searchability over a range of antique categories, this is the place to find unique pieces for their beauty or their value. From antique manuscripts and antique decorative arts, to art nouveau antiques and Asian antiques, buyers can select from a huge range of antique options and buy online. What should buyers be aware of when buying antiques online? Just the same as buying antiques in person, there are certain factors to consider when buying antiques online. Look for any damage or wear in the photos, check for marks of authenticity, and read the seller’s description carefully for more information.
