    Benefits of Valuation

    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?

    June Newsletter

    It's almost summer and we've already had some warm weather, hopefully it's a sign of things to come. This month we've been taking a look at statement pieces and how you can transform any room in your home with either a vintage or more modern piece. It takes time to choose the right one, after all it has to fit in with your décor, and the colour scheme, so it's worth thinking it over before you buy. That one well thought out piece is all you need to change the overall look, or just to give your room that extra something that will be the centre piece of your home, and get oohs and aahs of appreciation from family and friends.

    Statement Pieces

     

    There's nothing like a bold statement piece to really liven up a room. You may be a traditionalist with a love of classic pieces, or perhaps you're a true modernist with a flair for putting contemporary looks together and mixing them with the odd antique piece?

    The Art of Walking

    The Art of Walking

    Some cities have traffic lights saying: “Walk!” Cristina Rodriguez conveys the same message in Geneva through her exhibition of paintings “Promenades Enchantées à Genève”, showing at the Cité du Temps from 25 May to 3 July 2016. This series of 10 large oil works presents a unique guided tour of the City that warmly welcomed the artist from 2010 to 2012. Your eyes will meander around familiar sights and landscapes, pausing to take in some of the characters that reside in these very specific places. “Geneva needs to be walked, it needs our time and our silence, in order for it to embrace us,” claims the Columbian artist with conviction. The beauty of this ‘indoor walking tour’ is that the colours will not be washed away by a summer shower.

    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.

    As a way of celebrating the new valuation service on-site with www.antiques.co.uk, we've chosen a fun way to celebrate some famous unique finds. We may not find anything like this in our own homes, but they make for some interesting stories when retold.

    We've picked 7 of the most interesting. Not all were found in an attic, but they may help give you a little motivation to go searching for something in the back of your attic or spare room, or to go looking around local shops and antique stores for that special find.
