New The Top 20 Selling Antiques & Collectibles in 2015 | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

TIAS.com releases their annual list of the top 20 antiques and collectibles that sold online in 2015.


...A few interesting items to note: Comic books and Dolls are back on the list after not making the top 20 in 2014. Vintage clothing dropped from #8 in 2014 to #16 in 2015. Books and music related collectibles dropped off of the top 20 list for 2015. The top 3 categories in 2015 were China & Dinnerware, Vintage Sewing and Glass. They retained the same rank they have held since 2014.

18th Century Italian Altarpiece

18th Century Italian Altarpiece | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
This important piece was the backdrop of a side altar dedicated to the Virgin Mary in a now disused church in Venice. It features the most detailed hand-engraved metal thread decor with painted flowers, material, canvas, and wood trim. Engraving reads "Maria". Such truly unique pieces are mostly used as dramatic backdrops for statues, sculptures, paintings or to accommodate an indoor water feature. Circa 18th century.

The height of the canopy is adjustable. A few repairs. Please contact us for additional photographs and measurements. Marble shelf is not included.

The canopy is 36in high, 40in wide, 20in deep.

How To Clean Old Feed Sacks

How To Clean Old Feed Sacks | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
While the graphics can be real beauties, they lie beneath layers & clumps of stuff that is not so beautiful and smells — like dirt and, yes, manure.

In order to be of any real value, the vintage and antique feed sacks must be cleaned.

But it is neither safe nor advisable to throw them into the wash machine. (Since the weave of burlap sacks is so wide, I rarely ever trust my washing machine with them. Even the gentle or hand-wash settings always seems to create pulls or holes, often starting at the threads at the seams. I just don’t like to risk it.)

Instead, you must hand wash them — and, due to their size, one at a time at that.

While the old feed sacks I cleaned today are made of burlap, you can clean other feed, seed, flour, sugar sacks etc. in the same way.
