Tip 1

The antique market is a fickle one with tastes coming and going – and values rising and falling with them. Getting a current antiques appraisal is a good way to stay on top of the trends.

Tip 2

Always seek the advice of an experienced restoration or conservation professional instead of trying to repair a broken or damaged antique yourself. Poor repair jobs often reduce the value of an antique more than the damage itself!
