In the process of buying and selling antiques and art is the research to learn about an object or its maker, a painter or sculptor.
The stories behind a piece or an artwork can be one of the most fascinating parts of the job.
I never know where this will take me, I know as you are reading this blog you are probably like-minded in this regard.
Many pieces have been around for centuries, some in the same family for generations, and how some things have survived when you consider the first year of the 19th century is now 223 years ago.
Buying new stock gives me a chance to check out an object’s history before it goes on the site.
If there is any more info you would like on an object or if you have any knowledge on a piece I would love to hear from you.
