Guidelines for Collecting
Ten sound rules as a guide for art collecting:
- Study the field which interests you the most.
- Buy carefully at first.
- Make sure that your work of art has quality.
- Deal with a top dealer. Some dealers and major galleries will guarantee the authenticity of the art work they sell so check this point.
- Do not buy art works just because they are a current rage.
- Ask the advice of museum directors or curators whenever possible.
- Decide upon your investing limit before you buy. If you fall in love with a more expensive object try to arrange for a time payment. We certainly encourage this and offer FLEXIBLE PURCHASE PLAN.
- Spread your financial risk by buying a variety of art unless you are expert in a particular field.
- Buy the best examples you can afford in any category.
- Do not buy objects that have been significantly restored.
- Buy pieces that you love. It’s wonderful that ancient art is a good investment, but remember that whatever you purchase is also going to be a part of your home and will be cherished for years.
- Consider giving ancient art as a gift. It is not only a great compliment to the recipient, it will appreciate in value. As Helen-Louise Seggerman wrote in Town & Country, it is “remarkable the short time it has taken for collecting ancient art to go from a relative backwater to the forefront of collecting.
