Introduction about ourselves. Our knowledge of Antiques amounts to 36 years of collecting,studying reference books, and working many years ago for relations who at the time owned and ran a very successful Auction House.The early years in the family business were the basics of our Antiques knowledge, especially so with ceramics. Out of all Antiques, we believe that ceramics are probably the most difficult to study, as there are literally thousands of old potteries and factories worldwide that need to be studied. Everyday that passes brings fresh revelations about Antiques, and the learning process will therefore continue. Our advice is to listen carefully to people who have been involved with Antiques for many years, ask questions and read every antique book that you can lay your hands on, especially the late Victorian books, as it is these old books, perhaps lacking in glossy, colour photos-but crammed full of the best information you could wish to absorb. Re-read them if necessary, and you will find a new world has opened up, and whereas previously you may have had what we call 'surface knowledge', now, with your extra study this will change into a 'deeper knowledge',which in turn will give you far more confidence when examining and buying Antiques. Also, whenever the opportunity arises, handle ceramics,never meind about damage, just look closely, get the feel,ask yourself, 'now is this soft paste or hard paste:' study the chipped areas as damaged china can reveal a lot of clues as to the country of origination. One last tip to the novice,try to buy the best that you can afford,don't be tempted into the so called 'newer Antiques' or the reproductions, as it is these that has spoiled many a good fair and centre, by the more unscrupolous dealers selling the items as old, whereas in fact they are brand new. Ask the dealers to put in writing the description and age of the item, and if they put you off, then the old adage of 'when in doubt don't' most definitely will apply. Also, if you find a good and trustworthy dealer, stick with him or her, and you will find that your loyalty will pay off, with interest.
