Asian Antiques – Buying an Artifact
As we all know, many Asian countries have been around for thousands of years and many have been through a lot of turmoil and strife in their long history. In some instances, it was the result of civil wars or other military conflicts. In other instances, it was the result from natural disasters like plagues, floods and earthquakes. In still other instances, it was the results of foreign invasions. Regardless of the reason for the strife and unrest, there is no denying that the countries of Asia have suffered greatly.
As a result of this, they have often been forced to rebuild their infrastructure, to replace damaged buildings, and to restore their cities and towns. Many times, this has resulted in the discovery of ancient artifacts that were left behind by previous civilizations. These artifacts have provided historians with invaluable information about the people who built them and about the societies in which they lived.
Because of the fact that many of these artifacts were left behind after the turmoil had subsided, they have often been found in good condition. As a result, they have become highly sought after by collectors and museums alike. Because of the high demand for these artifacts, they are often sold at very high prices. The price of many of these artifacts can go up into the tens of thousands of dollars. If you are thinking about buying an Asian antique, then you should be aware of the risks involved. You need to make sure that you are buying something that is authentic and that will appreciate in value over time. If you are not careful, you could end up with a worthless piece.
The Van Gearys started as casual collectors and appreciators of artistic intricacy for their collections. They would search far and wide, scouring the world, looking through different shops, thrift stores, yard sales, and storage auctions to find oddities of the most exemplary order. After going through years of collecting and maintaining a plethora of different artworks, they decided to dabble in selling antiquities and enabling their Art’s access to the world. Using their experiential and theoretical knowledge to the test, they decided to delve deeper by opening their own auction gallery.
Van Geary Auction Gallery, founded in 2018, is a significant proprietor of high-end Art pieces and historical collections. We pride ourselves on our vast acquirement of unique and eclectic items from different eras, all in crisp condition.
