The first thing we tend to do these days when we’re looking to buy or sell antiques is to look online. If you Google ‘sell antique French furniture’ for example you will discover thousands of sites from all over the world and you will start to get inundated with information you won’t know what to do with. So where should you begin?

 

HOW TO SELL YOUR ANTIQUES

If you don’t happen to be an expert it’s advisable to find out as much as you can before you start the process:

 

  • Speak to antique dealers, specialist websites and auction houses to gauge the value of your items.
  • A third-party valuation is useful for you to have when speaking to potential buyers so you will know if the offers they make are in the right price range for the current market
  • To sell your antiques online it's improtant to upload good quality images of the item, as well as any manufacturer marks and most importantly any flaws, scratches or things that could affect the valuation
  • Try to assess serious buyers so you don’t get people wasting your time.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW

There are lots of variables involved in selling antiques so the first thing you should try to find out is simply whether your item is authentic? Do you know when it was made? Do you know who the manufacturer was? Do you have any of the original documentation, including a Certificate of Authenticity?

Maybe the piece has been in your family or years, maybe it is too big and or maybe you need to raise some cash. Whatever your reasons, it’s important to understand your options when it comes to selling.

Selling Your Antiques At Auction

Auction houses sell antiques regulary and will most likely be accurate to the pieces current market value but you need to take a number of factors into consideration 

There are often fees and commissions attached to selling antiques at auction so make sure you ask the auction house what they are and how they are to be paid.

The sale price of your item really depends on how popular it is and who’s in the room on the day. You could be lucky and have a bidding war going on between buyers, if there’s a poor turnout, you might end up selling at a price that fails to meet your ideal estimations after the gavel comes down, which there is not much you can do about this.

 

 Selling Your Antiques To  Pawnbrokers

Pawnbrokers don’t ‘buy’ antiques, they loan you an amount of money and you use the item as collateral against the loan. If you want the piece back, you will have to repay the loan amount as well as interest fees so just be aware of these factors before you enter into an agreement of this type. Generally, pawnbrokers are more often used by those wishing to jewellery but they can often help out with antiques as well.

 

Selling Your Antiques To Dealers

Specialist dealers can help you with finding a buyer, but sometimes they will charge you a valuation fee,for finding you an interested buyer and fees for selling your items on. Also remember that if they offer to buy your item from you, their offers may be less than you could achieve through a private sale, since they will be making a profit margin.
