What is an antiquity?

An antique is a piece that has reached an age that makes it attested to the past. To consider an object as an antiquity is something subjective, and depends on the type of object. Antiques are usually bought and sold at antique dealers. Vintage fashion is hitting hard in the westernized world and that has caused the appearance of many businesses that try to offer these products.

While antiques undoubtedly pay homage to the past, exhibiting them in a more modern way can give new life to their spaces.

"The personal touch of adding antiquities to a modern space allows them to stand out much more than what was shown in an exhibition room, breaking the monotony of a room of the time," said Benoist F. Drut, owner of the Maison Gerard gallery in the city of New York.

"Curing antiquities inside an interior gives the space a narrative," said Georgina Wood, design director at Taylor Howes, based in London. "There is something around the poetry that adds when juxtaposed against a modern canvas, it is often found that when a piece is removed from a traditional environment, the character of the piece stands out more and has more impact."

Classification of antiques

In the world there is a great variety of antiques and each corresponds to a particular taste of collectors. Although there may be occasions in which those interested in the varied collections of objects from different periods, materials or artistic manifestations or field objects and others, antiques are like everything, a variety that satisfies the personal taste of each collector and which naturally strive to classify in an appropriate way.

There are antiquities from offices. Truly amazing! For those who enjoy making a collection with objects of desks, lecterns, disused typewriters, even tile and furniture and everything concerning a work environment. But there are also those who love the collections of objects such as war, and especially the Second World War, as well as weapons that are boats among other objects.

It is very popular to acquire objects related to farm work, because used in decoration give way to what is known as historical decoration and are more accessible in price and much easier to obtain. But there are also those who enjoy collecting silver objects, whether they are utensils made in it that are intended for use in the office that spoons, plates and trays and other household and kitchen appliances, or fountain pens, accessories and all other silver .

Like the plant there is a great movement within the collection of collectible products, copper, iron, stone, and small that large or relatively old in this case some are not 100 years ago but because they fell in disuse for some time become coveted antiquities.

Depending on the materials they are, a large or small collection can be achieved, logically that a variety of stone antiques is much more expensive to acquire and maintain, because some date back to antiquity and many as sculptures or small pieces of furniture are not accessible to most collectors and is located in cultural venues.

In contrast silver antiques are more accessible due to the constant sale of family assets that sometimes, especially in Europe, can cover centuries of existence in beautiful games of silverware, shields and other small objects that are the golden dream of a collector.
