Why buy an Antique?
Antiques have much to commend them to the discerning buyer and offer unrivalled value for money. Not only are they often less expensive than many modern equivalents, but frequently they represent sound investments whereas items of recent manufacture will tend to depreciate substantially the moment they leave the shop.
Craftsmen-made, antiques have already proved their quality in standing the tests of time and with moderate care promise years of future service. Buying a previously owned item is kinder to the environment, recycling the past for present-day use and enjoyment, and it is possible to obtain in an antique a degree of exclusivity that is rarely to be found on the high street.
