Specialists choice Carl Barkman
We have spoken with Carl Barkman, Head Specialist Fine Art and Antiques, who talks about the selection at this spring's Important Spring Sale. He also takes the opportunity to list some of his favourite objects among the substantial selection in this spring's auction.
What can we look forward to in this spring's Important Spring Sale auction?
- We can look forward to an auction full of not only high-class items but also items with a history that bridge time gaps and make the past feel present and tangible.
What should you think about if you want to buy antiques?
- If you think of buying antiques, a good guiding principle is to focus on one or two objects. Find out everything you need to know about these, read, ask us, specialists at Bukowskis. Antique objects can often look scratchy, but much is on the surface and can easily be fixed. Nor must we forget that most of these things are created for use, and they still hold for usage today. Do not see collecting antiques just as something for display in a locked cabinet but as objects that can be integrated and used in the home and thus gild everyday life.
