Antiques are undoubtedly objects worthy of aesthetic appreciation which are associated with historical significance and properties. The labeling of an item as an antique presumes it has value which is evident in the workmanship and rarity, boasting of regality and opulence. Knowing the remarkable history and intricate craft behind a particular piece remains a fascinating and unfaltering discovery that also comes with a responsibility of lineage. Antiques and collectibles are generally rare, sought-after items that are often acquired for their investment value in addition to one’s budding collection of home décor. Therefore, collecting antiques does not have to feel intimidating, and does not have to be expensive so the hobbyist in you can continue to scour antique shops, thrift stores or flea markets for the ultimate purchase. For an insightful blast from the past, Design Pataki engages in a conversation with the antiquing elders, Jacinta Moorthy, Co-founder of Moorthy’s and Sunny Chandiramani, Vice-President, Client Relations at AstaGuru Auction House, for their invaluable experience and to educate on the art of antiquing.
