The Origins Of A Mid-Century Modern Endtable | Inherited Values

The Origins Of A Mid-Century Modern Endtable | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

It has a very odd shape — it looks different no matter what angle you look at it from. There’s spaces underneath for books, a tall slot at the back for your large-format Life and Look magazines, and the classic kidney-shaped top means it’ll both fit everywhere and not quite fit anywhere. Of course, we had to buy it.

 

Fast-forward a few weeks later...

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

I had this set, once upon a time. Once I moved, I was forced to change to a different color scheme and I sold them. Drat. I should have just packed them away for the next time I moved. *sigh*

Queen Victoria's stockings up for auction

Queen Victoria's stockings up for auction | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Dating from the 1870s, the historical hosiery comes embroidered with the royal VR monogram and will be auctioned off by Tennant’s Auction House in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, on Friday (April 26).

 

Social history author Dulcie Lewis, from Carperby, near Leyburn, has written a book on the history of women’s undergarments, entitled Casting Off The Corsets: A Brief History of Underwear.

 

She said Queen Victoria’s under garments do occasionally come up for sale as she would strangely  give away her underwear as presents to people who worked for her.

Jennifer Aniston ‘enjoys antique spree’

Jennifer Aniston ‘enjoys antique spree’ | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have reportedly been visiting antique emporiums around Los Angeles as they kit out their new mansion with furniture...

 

"One of the most expensive items was an 18th-century mahogany rocking chair, which cost in the region of $1 million," a source told UK magazine Grazia. "It was apparently used by Founding Father Benjamin Franklin."

 

The insider reports that Jennifer fell in love with a $300,000 Georgian bookcase. Her fiancé 41-year-old actor Justin is also said to have grown fond of antiques, with his buys reflecting a more personal meaning.

 

"Justin's favourite piece was a longcase Tompion English clock from the 1660s, which was said to have been used by British royalty. He recalled his grandfather having a similar one and wanted something like it," an insider explained. "They're both extremely happy with all they've purchased, but they haven't finished yet. The house is going to be crammed with history by the time they are done."

Furniture Detective: Managing organic threats to antique furniture | Antique Trader

Furniture Detective: Managing organic threats to antique furniture | Antique Trader | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Are you properly defending your antique furniture against organic damage? Be it insects, pets or people, all require some safeguarding when it comes to furniture...

 

There are a lot of things in the world that are good for your older and antique furniture: controlled temperature and humidity, regular cleaning, careful use and loving attention. But there are also a lot of things out there that are bad for your furniture: flood water, excess light, inappropriate polishes and fire.

 

But there is yet another classification of harmful elements that you must be aware of: the organic kind. And other than you, there are no organic creatures that are beneficial to antique furniture and some are downright destructive.
