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.

Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find

Sixty classic cars unearthed after 50 years in massive barn find | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
From Corvettes to Aston Martins, the rising prices commanded by classic cars — especially unrestored, mostly original examples — has created a goldmine for those who hunt for old vehicles rotting away unattended in some barn. Today, a French auction house revealed a discovery it called the King Tut of barn finds; a treasure trove of 60 European cars, including a rare Ferrari missing for decades, that had been slowly decaying in western France.

Matthew Humenik's curator insight, December 9, 2014 11:33 AM
This is an unbelievable find, which could be considered the same as winning the lottery. One of these cars is worth around the $15 million dollar range meaning it is was of the rarest cars to be found.

Wow -  Imagine finding such a work.  This particular Faberge Egg is small.  These eggs were made for the Russian czar and his family and many were thought lost during the Russian Revolution and ensuing chaos.

Antique Auction Houses Buck The Economic Trend

Antique Auction Houses Buck The Economic Trend | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Latest figures show that most provincial auction houses have done rather well during 2011. Why?

 

People like to collect things, and antiques are a favourite collectable. It's nice to own a piece of history that you can use; something you can sit on, serve dinner on, store items inside of, or look at in appreciation.

 

The value of an antique is realised by the collector who owns it as well as the collector who wishes to own it and that is evidenced by the sterling performance of antique auction houses during 2011, when low interest rates, record gold and silver prices and collectors looking to liquidate assets produced record sales results.

 

For instance; the highest price paid in the UK in 2011 was the 1.75m pound bid for an Imperial Qing dynasty white jade teapot and cover at Woolley & Wallis.

 

In the USA in December 2011, the unique Brasher Doubloon, known as the 1st American Dollar Gold Coin, was sold by Steven L. Contursi. It was bought by Blanchard and Company of New Orleans for around 3 million dollars, who then sold it to a Wall Street investment firm for nearly 7.4 million dollars.

 

For most antique buyers and sellers these are numbers we can only dream of; but It will always stand you in good stead if you take the time to understand how to buy and sell your more modest collectibles and antiques at auction.
