Ogled Antiques Connoisseur Collection
Antiques have always held a bright future, even more so during current times. Emerging collectors of today pursue dynamic collections that create ever more meaningful and dramatic interiors that shine with personal taste and flair.
With resources available and in-depth knowledge about antiques, collectors have a distinct eye, creating a personal collection that is uniquely their own. Such a strong market for antique art and furniture was all the encouragement that we needed to cater to this niche.
Portrait Miniatures; Tiny Treasures for Collectors
Portrait miniatures have a longstanding history that goes back to the 15th Century - first appearing on illuminated manuscripts with minimum or red lead used to colour. These were referred to as ‘limnings’ during the 16th and the 17th Centuries in Europe. From the 18th Century onwards, the term 'miniature' came into being.
A sofa isn't the same without a beautiful antique sofa table
During olden times, antique sofa tables were considered to be really fashionable. They evolved from, and superseded, the earlier pembroke tables.
As the name suggests, sofa tables were designed to be placed in front of a sofa. They were mainly used for serving tea or even for writing. Earlier examples of sofa tables had a high stretcher, whereas those made after the 19th century had stretchers placed at ankle height.
Shop For Collector's Coins at Ogled Antiques
Ogled Antiques take a fine interest in Collectors Coins. We currently have for sale a Royal Mint 1980 Gold Proof Set.
The Royal Mint is a UK Limited Company, wholly owned by the Her Majestys Treasury with an exclusive contract to mint all coins in the UK.
This company has roots that go back over 1000 years. However, it has been operating since 2010 as Royal Mint Ltd, located at Llantrisant, Wales and owned by HM Treasury. It works under an exclusive contract to supply to the UK with all her coins. It also manufactures coins and medals internationally, including 4700 medals for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Investing in Gold Sovereigns
At Ogled Antiques, we also stock investment gold that is sold at a small mark-up on the current London gold spot price. The face value of a British Gold Sovereign is £1. But the real calculation of a Sovereign is calculated by multiplying its gold content and the current gold spot price.
The various denominations are as follows with differing weights and values:
- Quintuple Sovereign
- Double Sovereign
- Half Sovereign
- Quarter Sovereign
The benefits of buying original oil paintings
Oil paintings, with their intricate details, accentuate your decor and contribute to the aesthetic appeal of your home. If you can locate and purchase an original painting - there is nothing quite like it!
Nowadays, digital prints and posters are affordable, readily available, and in many cases, also a good representation. But, there is still something special about buying original pieces by noted artists that are one-of-a-kind. If you have never considered an original painting, we give you a few good reasons to go for this rare and unique form of art.
