Some Advice on Purchasing Antique, Vintage and Second-Hand Silver
Selecting antique and second-hand silver is an immense field which encompasses work from some of the most distinguished master goldsmiths who were internationally renowned artists in their own right down to the most practical and routine of machine manufactured plain household products. In thinking about choosing this pair of silver plate Corinthian column table lamps we are pleased to supply a few tips that can help you make your mind up on just what is ideal for you.
Highly prized for hundreds and hundreds of years, silver has exclusive attributes that have made it both beautiful and collectible and as a result folk have accumulated and used it in a wide variety of different forms. There is a huge amount of antique, vintage and second-hand silver around available today today. So how do you know what to go for?
The primary rule is that it is best to go for what you actually like. Give some focus to the reasons why you like this pair of silver plate Corinthian column table lamps and if they speak to your aesthetic feeling then why wait?

A key topic is the condition of a silver item and how much repair work has taken place. When choosing silver antiques that are over 200 years old they will need to have what is called a 'patina' which is a combination of the colour and the wear. You cannot expect an old silver item to appear as if it just came from the workshop - if it actually does then it has potentially been heavily restored which is not a positive thing for an item of antique silver.
Take note that in the silver antiques world a little bit of restoration is okay where a small ding or dent may be cautiously eliminated. But be weary of over plating, lead or silver solder, repaired seams, holes, erased inscriptions, patches and later additions or ornaments. All of these are not acceptable for a piece of great antique silver. The good news is that here at Regent Antiques we are careful to and supply only the finest unblemished silver pieces and where something like re-plating has been done we will tell you.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
