Antiques are rare pieces of sculptures or artifacts, which have a high value either due to its age or beauty or may be, both.

Antiques are rare so should be maintained in a manner that they could last forever. Antiques are objects and articles that are from a previous era or are over 100 years old.


Furniture and other home accessories were so well made years ago that most antiques are still functional and useable today. How do you know if older pieces of furniture you have or collectors items you own arent antiques. Some older furniture and decorations are extremely valuable now because they can still be used for their original functions. The collecting of antique furniture is a particularly popular area of antiques due to the practical characteristics of these antiques. Antique furniture includes dining tables, chairs, bureaus, chests etc. There are a number of different styles of antique furniture depending on when and where it was made.

Value is determined by many other factors than age alone. Having a good idea of the value of your antiques will also help in settling an estate or in the case of divorce. There are many books that list antique values. Be aware, however, that like many things, antique values can change over time, so try to use the most up-to-date books you can find. Just about any object can become an antique if it survives long enough, but value of an antique in the market place is determined by its appeal and social acceptance.


Auctions are a great way to find the antiques you want without having to brave disorderly crowds. Its also a good idea to find out if there are any auctions or community fairs going on in your area -- you are more likely to find someone who wants to buy your antiques at these places. Auction houses rarely offer educational resources, and are not places for the beginning antique investor. You can also sell your antiques at online auctions, such as Ebay. If you are interested incollecting antiques, auctions, both online and in person, are a good way to get a feel for what items people are interested in these days.
