I Antique Online

A Community For People Who Buy, Sell or Collect Antiques, Collectibles and Art

Are you sitting on the fence deciding if you should buy old or new wicker for your porch this summer? There are a lot of reasons to choose old instead of new.

Here is one reason...Craftsmanship in the wicker furniture industry was alive and well in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Heywood Brothers and Company, Wakefield Rattan Company, and later, Heywood Brothers and Wakefield Company were the pioneers of the wicker industry. Quality pieces that were treated well will continue to be beautiful, useful, and provide lasting pleasure for many years to come.

All the older wicker was made to last, not like todays mass made stuff made to be sold, their is some good quality wicker being made last I knew of

as long as the structure is good most every thing else can be repaired, even frames can be repaired, but most of the time it takes more dollars to fix, but then you have a great piece of wicker to use for years.

Right now I have a couple of upholstered wicker chairs in the shop for small repairs, have to get them done before spring so the folks can use them
