Treasure Hunting for Michigan-themed Antiques

Treasure Hunting for Michigan-themed Antiques | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Despite repeated requests from family and friends to join in the adventure, it’s something I (selfishly) prefer to do solo. I like going at my own pace, without worrying about a guest who is bored 10 minutes into the day, and getting lost in the nostalgia of it all.

 

While I rarely have something specific I’m looking for, I always seem to find “just the right thing” to add to my collection. Items featuring Michigan receive top attention of course – especially travel brochures and magazines, food and agriculture focused pieces, unique license plates and slightly-rusted signs. I’m also drawn to cottage- and beach-themed décor, garden art and things that are red (the primary accent color in my home).

 

This past April, a couple treasures found their way into my heart (and ultimately into my bag). A wooden dachshund with “Frankenmuth Beer” in faded paint was a steal at just $5 (even with its chipped tail – which to me, adds to its character). I also scored 5 juice-size glasses adorned with red roosters – perfect for sampling my favorite made-in-Michigan spirits – for $7.

Luckiest Man Alive Finds $156,000 In Gold Coins On First Time Using Metal Detector | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Some people spend a lifetime trying to amass a fortune through hard work and guile. For one British man, it took only 20 minutes in a field with a metal detector -- the first 20 minutes he had ever used such a machine.

Antique 1900's Stunning Glass Frame with Photo, Late Victorian

Antique 1900's Stunning Glass Frame with Photo, Late Victorian | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
This is a beautiful antique glass frame with hand painted flowers and leaves! Some of the paint has worn away, but that only adds to its charm, in my opinion. The glass frame measures approx. 5.5" wide x 8" tall.

Celluloid: The Eternal Substitute | Chemical Heritage Foundation | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Before becoming a synonym for cinema, celluloid was never quite a star attraction. But able to imitate expensive materials like ivory, tortoiseshell, and linen, the first successful synthetic plastic played a subtle role in shaping consumer culture.

Boedi Mranata Holding history in his hands | The Jakarta Post | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The wide range of Boedi Mranata’s antique collection makes it hard to believe that it is a private collection. Besides Chinese antique ceramics that make up most of his collection, he is also keen on collecting other works of art, such as peranakan furniture and decorations, antique Javanese kris holders, and even genuine pieces of furniture owned by queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Boedi’s passion is driven by the pleasure of owning beautiful artworks and his motivation to preserve history. Profit making is not on his agenda.

Vanes a barometer of history, culture

Vanes a barometer of history, culture | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Whether they were sailing, fighting, or farming, people have always needed to know which way the wind blows.

 

But weather vanes have been used for far more than just a forecast.

 

A vane on a house or barn might show what business you were in, whether you lived in the country or along the seacoast, or simply what took your fancy. Great paths to self-expression, the objects would telegraph to all what was important to you.

 

One of the earliest American vanes still in existence - in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia History Museum - is a decorative iron banner with the initials of William Penn, two of his partners, and the date 1699. The vane, which topped a mill in Upland, was a business statement combined with a work of art.

 

While other categories of antiques have come and gone, weather vanes - and the prices they bring - have remained strong because buyers still use them as a form of personal expression. For weather vane collectors, the possibilities are almost infinite.
