On line auctions

Have you ever gone to a flea market or garage sale to find great antiques? Well the new garage sale is eBay and other great on line auctions. You can pick up some real treasures by finding undervalued pieces of art simply by knowing where to look. The best antiques are hiding under obscure names on online auction sites. Try searching for “old glass figurine” or other bland phrases that someone may use to describe an object that they do not fully understand the value.

Tea Pots

Tea Pots

Because I’m an artist, and can be kind of edgy at that, a lot of people expect me to be primarily interested in collecting art. I suppose I am quite interested in collecting art. But what few suspect is that I’ve also got quite a passion for … vintage and antique tea pots.

Yes, I said tea pots.

There’s something exquisitely charming about old tea pots. For me, they conjure up images of old English cottages with fires blazing in the hearth and a hot pot… Continue

Hey everyone my name is Alex Halstead and I'm here to tell you about Antiquing online. One good thing about it is that getting an expert appraiser can often cost a lot of money just to evaluate one or a few items. Antiquing online allows people to do what they love in the comfort of their homes. Sometimes some people don't have the time to go to Antiquing social gatherings to get their precious treasures appraised.

Antiquing online allows me to save money by using an online appraiser… Continue

Painting is a mode of capturing, documenting and expressing the varied creative intents, as numerous as there are practitioners of the craft. Paintings can be naturalistic and representational (as in a still life or landscape painting), photographic, abstract, be loaded with narrative content, symbolism, emotion or be political in nature. A large portion of the history of painting is dominated by spiritual motifs and ideas; sites of this kind of painting range from artwork depicting… Continue

Online Auction

So, I was surfing on the internet and looking around for interesting antiques to purchase. Yes, call me crazy, but this is one of my hobbies that I just love to do! Anyways, I come across this antique phone on an auction site known as eBay. This phone was made by California Electrical Works in San Francisco for Western Electric in 1879. They refer to this phone as a "Western Electric Potbelly Phone". Apparently they call it a "potbelly" phone, because it resembles a potbelly stove...… Continue

Dianne, IAO Editor-in-chief has asked me to write this Forum for the dealers. I am not an expert, but I have studied marbles intensely, have sold some on-line and spoken by e-mail to collector websites. The following is what I have discovered.

Marbles have been around for centuries. On line there are many, many websites devoted to marbles and history and some with prices. Glass artists today make beautiful marbles (small paperweights) and they sell for $350 and up. There are… Continue

Mystery Identification

I purchased this item at an auction, but I have no idea of what it is or was, nor country of origin, or value. It's approximately 14 inches high X 8 inches wide at the handle, X 7 inches at the body, and 3.5 inches thick. The two round covers that unscrew are 6 inches in diameter. It has thirteen faces woven into the piece, which are cleaver hidden...it's a quite unique & artistic piece.

The bottom has been reattached somewhere in the 1900th century, as there is a screw attaching… Continue

Recession? In Antiques & Fine Art? Where?

This Meissen Clock recently sold on eBay after 29 bids for $6,352.51

If you can find what the collector is looking for, then recession doesn't figure into the equation. There doesn't seem to be any lack of funds in the upper end Antique and Fine Art markets. I’ve stated this to you on many occasions. But, as news of the volatile stock markets continue, it’s important to me that I find evidence of this so we don’t get run over by the… Continue

Euro drops- dollar up for antiquers to Europe

www.EuropeAntiqueTrip.com this year has a group of antiquers from the USA going to shop for antiques in Europe in December and February. The good news for all these antiquers and anyone else who joins them is the current state of the US dollar. The dollar to Euro and/or British pound value is higher than it has been in many years. Antique dealers and collectors who have been waiting because of the bad dollar can now finally enjoy that trip they have dreamed about. In spite of the economic… Continue

Metalware - All Things Bright and Beautiful

I love this pretty silver water pitcher made by Silver International Company that I inherited from my mother and grandmother. It adds a sparkly touch to my cozy kitchen.

Metalware represents… “all things bright and beautiful.” Brass, silver and silverplate, gold, and copper…are a few examples of materials used for these “bright and beautiful” collectibles. Cast iron and pewter are examples of rather dull but yet beautiful… Continue

Florida Antique Shops

Living in Florida gives me a chance to see the more sedate side of Florida rather than just Disney and Busch Gardens and the like. A lot of the downtown area of Dade City, in central Florida, is little antique shops. Most of them are in older buildings that are sort of dark and you just know from the get-go that you're going to find a treasure.

A lot of the shops here house a huge variety of antique dishes and other glassware, as well as some old clothes, wedding dresses, and books,… Continue

Ebay Antiques

I was surfing around on Ebay and I stumbled upon a chess game table. Its not like any other game table, this piece of living room furniture is a real work of art. It can be used as coffee table or it can be opened up like two roman castle doors ready to welcome the nobleman with honor. A true medieval sense of nostalgia you've never even experienced, but still it makes you feel like your going back in time like you were really there at one point, you know? I just wish I had the money to pay for… Continue
