Antiques are basically old items which are collected for their value. Generally, they are defined by their age, which is usually at least a hundred years old. Items which are rare, as well as old, could also fit in well with this category of items, as well as items which have certain collectible value to them, along with the item’s given age.
Antique dealers are basically persons who deal with antiques, the selling, appraising, and even the procuring of these products. Normally, antiquing, the act of shopping for antiques, begins with visiting with these dealers, looking at the treasures they’ve managed to get, and seeing if any of them would pique one’s interest. On certain occasions, the appraising services of dealers are called by antique-ers, asking dealers for their opinions regarding the pre or post purchase of an item.
As their professional title basically says it, antique dealers know antiques, over and under. Many of these dealers are part of associations, particularly national trade associations. The CINOA stands to be one of the most popular association many dealers associate themselves with. The CINOA is basically a confederation of antique associations and art associations, whose membership includes members from 19 countries, with over five thousand dealers within the organization’s member roster.
Just as with almost any field today, antique dealers are known to “specialize” on particular antique items. For example, Dealer A has a keen eye for antique jewelry. Dealer B has his sights on rare pocket watches. Should you, who happen to be on the lookout for pocket watches, want to have an pocket watch, going to antique dealer B would be the smart choice, but does not necessarily mean Antique Dealer A would have no idea about rare pocket watches. Bottom line, dealers have specializations, as well as armed with the know how regarding the stature of an item as an antique.
Purchasing antiques from events like garage sales and estate sales, are often followed by a visit to an antique dealer, asking his/her opinion regarding the value of the purchased item. These skilled dealers would be the safest source for antiques, as the items sold by genuine antique dealers are verified to be true. Bottom line, should you be interested in getting antiques, referring to dealers would be a good course of action.
