News-Antique.com - Feb 07,2011 - Adding a name to a work of art to increase its value isn't a new idea, We are taking it from the canvas and applying it to other mediums in the art world.
Investing in antiques isn't a new idea we are simply re-inforcing an already viable investment by revealing the people behind the piece.
The architects and designers represented in the objects we handle have played their part in designing the world we live in today. Their influence has been felt by all, whether consciously or not.
Museums across the world celebrate this by collecting and displaying the best examples of objects by architects and designers, ensuring they are given the time in the spotlight they deserve. Their collecting is their investment. Our useful links page lists international Museums that have related items in their collections.
Take for instance the armchair we offer by Phillip Clissett. This is truly the archetypal arts and crafts chair made throughout by one man in a traditional manner. Chairs like this, by Clissett, were used to furnish the Great Hall at the Art Workers Guild. Seeing it there, the key people of the arts and crafts movement copied the design, from Voysey and Gimson to Liberty and Morris & Company. Examples of this chair are in the collections of Cheltenham Museum & Art Gallery, Hereford Museum & Art Gallery and Leicester Museum.
