Questions About After The Antique
  • 1stDibs ExpertOctober 21, 2020

    Repairs and replacements can go toward devaluing any piece of antique or vintage furniture, and any modifications or repairs done to a centuries-old mirror should be handled by experts and executed with care. Because antique Venetian mirrors were handcrafted by Italian artisans and can in some cases be hundreds of years old, it is strongly recommended that you consult with experts in the field of restoring antique or decorative mirrors in the event that your piece should require restorative work.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Sterling silver candlesticks are worth $5 to $10, on average. Sterling silver candlesticks are not worth much because there is very little silver in sterling silver.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Yes, you can use a runner rug on stairs. When shopping for the perfect runner for your stairs, make sure that it will fit the entire length of your stair risers and treads.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    You can identify an antique table in a number of ways. The first clue that a table is antique is the joinery. If a piece of furniture is dovetailed by hand, it only has a couple of dovetails, which are uneven. Also, antique tables are not defined by perfect symmetry. Lastly, antique tables were typically made of oak, mahogany, and walnut.
    In addition to the joinery you can check the bottoms of the drawers and the backs of the cabinets. If they were made prior to 1850 then the wood will most likely be dimensioned by hand. It will be uneven to the touch. The secondary wood that receives the veneer will have been scraped smooth but drawer bottoms, backs and bottoms are often left less finished.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    There are a number of factors that can indicate if your antique furniture is valuable. When determining the value of antique furniture, consider its rarity. Additionally, it is important to determine the quality and condition of vintage furniture. If unsure of the value of your vintage furniture, have it appraised.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    Antique gold is as real as contemporary gold. Pure gold is 24-karats, though few pieces of jewelry are actually made completely of 24-karat gold because it's extremely soft. 14-karat and 18-karat gold jewelry is usually mixed with alloy to make the piece a bit more durable.

    The more optimal its condition, the more valuable an antique will likely be. If an item is perfectly uniform with no color, this is likely indicative that it is a modern mass-produced reproduction and thus, less valuable. When 1stDibs vets an item, we look for item condition and patina to determine if an item shows signs of age.
