"The piece would not fit in my bedroom when it was delivered. They were willing to take the molding off the piece and somehow remove it. It was then in two pieces" after that and I was able to get it in my room. They have been wonderful. They made sure it was secure and everything. I am very pleased with the way they worked with me to get it to fit. I m not sure about pricing; it did also include delivery though.

"What a fun place! Four floors of an eclectic array of old stuff, from pre- to modern. This is an antique coop, so each dealers showcases his" or her own wares. Prices range from reasonable to much higher, but there is something for everyone.

Antiques

Antique collecting is one of the most popular leisure activities in the United States. Due to their intrinsic value, antiquated items are either collected for investment and profit-making purposes or as display pieces, prized as heirlooms.

Tempted to give that treasure a "facelift"? Antiques' value may increase or decrease, so plan wisely!

Hi, benterrific. 

Keep checking around at the auction houses and antique dealers. There are a few in your area that are highly rated. The bigger auction houses should have qualified appraisers. You might also check with your local art museum or fine art gallery. Just like we recommend for big home repair projects, shop around to get the best price.

I found out the hard way in the military that it depends on the product. Some silver polishes will turn brass and copper black with instant tarnish and etch them, so check the label. Some types can be used for any soft metal, some not. I suspect it depends on the pH of the product, or whether it has aommonia in it. And of course if you do decide to try it, do the center bottom (where it sits on the table) first so you can see if it is causing problems.

 

Brasso is probably the top name in the industry - they make both liquid and treated cloth polishing products both for specific metals, and general polishing ones.

I would ask local antique shops and art stores (ones selling art and frames, not galleries) if they repair antiques, AND for references, so the repair does not decrease its value unecessarily. In many cases the old frame is worth more than the painting !
 
 
You could also ask local art museums who they use to repair/rehab frames, if they do not do it themselves.

They have a wonderful selection of mostly antiques, though some older, some newer. A wide range of prices, something for everyone. Friendly, helpful staff and competitive prices.

We are very pleased with the Falveys work. They come to our home to do an estimate, then picked up and delivered our furniture at no extra cost. Their estimate was very reasonable and they did not increase it. They really know what they're doing and it shows in beautiful results. The chair I had repaired I can't even see where the repair was ...More made. The other items were in sorry shape and now look wonderful. The only thing I would warn someone would be that they are busy and it can take several weeks to get items finished -- but it's worth the wait! I am thrilled to have found them!

Although I had seen scholarly , the antique dealer with a special expertise on grandfather clocks, on the pbs show "find", I still didn't know enough about him. At least I didn't until I talked to some of his clients. They all said he was knowledgeable and honorable and even nice. One lady even commented that ...More didn't give "feel good prices" to lure you in only to make you "feel bad" about the auction prices that he actually secured for your antiques. sold more than 511 high end antiques for me (things comparable to what you'd find at 's or sotheby's) and with perhaps a few exceptions(notable a dozen pieces of old english pewter), the price he gave me was precisely the price I received.
