Five Things about Antiques

ornate

I adore antiques.

It’s a love shared by one of the main characters in After the Scrum. Francis has an almost unhealthy obsession with all things ancient, so here’s a few things about antiques:

  1. Always consul an expert before attempting to clean one.   No, seriously, have you ever watched Antiques Roadshow?  They always have that one person who brings in a priceless item that has been ruined because of how they cleaned it.
  2. I can’t afford anything I want.  Seriously.
  3. Craftsmanship a hundred years ago was extraordinary.
  4. I use the word seriously way too often. (Not about antiques, but still accurate).
  5. Antique desks are the most amazing things.

Are you a fan of antiques?

      I meant to say, the sense of history each piece has is amazing. If only they could talk and tell us what they’ve seen.
