    Winter Sports

    It's the perfect time of year with which to indulge yourself with a break away from the January curse of constant rain. The pristine white snow, the crisp blue sky and the perfect white slope, just waiting for you to cover it with your tracks.

    The Ivory Act is due to come into force in Spring 2022.

    The Ivory Act is due to come into force in Spring 2022.

    The Ivory Act is due to come into force in Spring 2022. From this time, it will be illegal to deal in ivory apart from items that meet one of the five narrow and carefully defined exemptions and is registered or has an exemption certificate. 

    The five exemptions are:

    • Pre-1947 items containing less than 10% ivory by volume.
    • Pre-1975 musical instruments containing less than 20% ivory by volume.
    • Pre-1918 portrait miniatures with a surface area of no more than 320cm2.
    • Sales to and hire agreements with qualifying museums. This applies to museums accredited by Arts Council England, the Welsh Government, the Scottish Government, or the Northern Ireland Museums Council in the UK, or, for museums outside the UK, the International Council of Museums.
    • Pre-1918 items with outstanding artistic, cultural, or historic value.

    We are developing an awareness campaign on the Ivory Act to help ensure understanding of the ban and to support compliance among commercial dealers of ivory and members of the public.

    The Validity of Valuation

    The Validity of Valuation

    If you have potential valuables in your attic, then it's a good idea to have them valued. This is so that you can have them accurately insured in case of theft, and in case you choose to sell or auction in the future.

    Benefits of valuation

     

    You'll be pleased to know that www.antiques.co.uk will be offering a valuation service on all your collectibles and antiques on our site. This means that if you have anything you think may be of value, we can tell you what's its worth. It may be something you found by accident in your attic whilst clearing up, or perhaps its something that once belonged to your parents or grandparents. Thing is, why would you want to have it valued in the first place?

    Antique/vintage gifts are so much more interesting than brand new ones

    Antique/vintage gifts are so much more interesting than brand new ones

    If you’re one of those people that like to buy gifts which are both original and unique, then a trip down the high street is possibly the worst idea possible. And buying antique doesn’t mean you’re buying some dark wood coffee table that no one will want, or a large, heavy and unattractive lamp that your friends are going to want to hide in the loft. Antiques gifts cover a wide range, and not all of them are purely for aesthetic purposes, some still have a functional use, a unique alternative to today’s made-quickly-out-of-man-made-materials products which won’t stand the test of time.

    Serpentines, storage and celebration

     

    Oh the Georgians. They crop up again and again, not only when searching for antiques or discussing history, but today there is something of a revival of interest in all things Georgian. On top of that, the more we discuss the Georgians (and the Georges themselves), the more we notice the legacy they left behind in the form of antiques and buildings. Georgian buildings are constantly being saved and restored – if we could only furnish them with the furniture of the period!

    Small is beautiful

     

    Can you get big returns from small items? Well yes, if you buy carefully. Just because it seems small and relatively worthless doesn’t mean it is. And the great way of buying small is that you can still find something valuable without it taking up half your house.
