The Largest Antique Inventory in the U.S.A. Stocking over 90,000 square feet of shops and showrooms in 12 buildings.

We all dream of finding that perfect piece of antique furniture at the yard sale or auction, but remember that you'll only make that purchase if you can recognize its worth in the first place! While only a professional appraiser will be able to get the real story on a particular piece of furniture, you'll find that by just keeping a few pieces of information in mind, you will stand a fighting chance the next time you come across a great piece of antique furniture! First, make sure that you are familiar with the styles that you like. Do you have a love for Chippendale, or do you have a real love of Shaker pieces? If you are looking for specific pieces, make sure that you are well versed in the commonalities and motifs of the style; this is the best way to make sure that one doesn't escape your grasp. When you are looking for antique furniture, learn to recognize veneering. Essentially, this process involves making the "carcass" of a piece of furniture out of a less expensive wood and then using thin slices of a more desirable wood to cover it. While this may have started out as a money saving device, furniture makers soon started utilizing the natural grain of the wood, and you'll find some wonderful examples of how this grain was incorporated into the design.
