Some of the items featured include antique furniture, ceramics & glass, garden & architectural ornaments, silver & gold pieces, religious objects and sculptures. Expect to find precious materials like rare woods, marble or crystal handcrafted at their time, that serve as their own works of art and a reminder of bygone eras.

What can be considered antiques?

Antiques are ultimately objects determined by their age. The objects must be at least 100 years old and are often sought after for their historical value, uniqueness or investment potential. They can be anything that meets this marker, whether that be furniture, glassware or ceramics. From cabinets to desks, drawers and chandeliers, they often can be classified to antique periods like Renaissance, Louis XIV to XVI, Biedermeier and Baroque. 

An object has value when its rarity, condition, quality, aesthetic or historical significance and demand and provenance are considered. And they’re distinct from items listed as vintage or retro. Vintage and retro are simply terms used to describe something that is old but with less restrictions on how old an object needs to be.  

Our team of experts oversee every auction, meaning you can count on both quality and variety when you buy or sell antiques. So, whether you're a collector looking for something special or a seller in search of a business opportunity, sign up now.
