What Sort of Antiques Should You Collect?

By Allison Thompson

Antique collecting has now become one of the most competitive and exciting hobbies around the world. So if you are just starting out you are in for a real treat.

However, do not take the decision of collecting antiques lightly; it will change your life. But first you need to choose the type of antiques you want to collect and then concentrate on it, carry out as much research as possible before you rush in to your first purchase. What ever you do don�t do what some collectors have done where they have not chosen a niche item and just collect piles and piles of junk.

What you really need to consider as well when choosing what you are going to collect is as follows:-

Look at a period or time in history that has always held an interest for you?

Next look to make sure that you can afford to purchase items in your chosen item, you may be fascinated say by rare art, but unfortunately it may be unaffordable. So pick an item that is affordable to you.

But should you be collecting an item as an investor, and then it is good to invest in the best and highly recommended pricing guides that are available.

Next will you be placing your collection on display or will then be kept in a safe place? Are you going to display for all the world to see or are you just purchasing as an investment for the future.

Are you specifically collecting this item for a particular purpose, such as you wish to pass the collection on to your children or grandchildren, or great grandchildren or are they just to add decoration to a room.

It is advisable to consider all these points before you begin your collection.

What you should remember is choose what you want to collect, how you are going to collect it and in which way it will be displayed (if at all).

Look Inside, Under & Behind. The interior or back of the piece may be a different color or finish, but it, too, should be uniform; irregularities indicate that the piece has been repaired. Look at the corner blocks (also called �glue blocks�) underneath a chair, table or cabinet. The blocks should be the same color as surrounding wood; variations in color or texture are a sign that the corner blocks have been replaced.
