Whether it’s an old family heirloom, or was bought at an auction house, the best antique furniture deserves to be taken care of. When buying this kind of furniture, it’s important to check for certain hallmarks: how the piece was constructed; whether there’s a signature, label or stamp; and how much damage there is to the piece.
Usually, furniture will end up damaged from where it is moved the most. It’s also important to distinguish the difference between repairs and a complete replacement. Sometimes an antique has been altered so much, it’s no longer the same piece of furniture. Who can forget the Only Fools and Horses episode, when they buy what looks like a Queen Anne cabinet, but it turns out to be worth no more than banana boxes?
