What’s The Dif?. . . Art, Artwork. . . Whatever!

Language evolves. As time passes, it naturally, gradually becomes, flows, melds into other dimensions. Words never being static "things", it has always been thus. But in our era, everything constantly reshapes itself at a non-human speed of light....

I've been fighting the "good fight" for eons and it hasn't been easy being a "believer". :) Thanks for the feedback.

Terms used in the Antiques Profession and the Hobby of Antiquing

Terms used in the Antiques Profession and the Hobby of Antiquing

People are often confused by the terminology used by antiques dealers, and little wonder, since some of the terms have different interpretations (sometimes based on what the dealer has in stock rather than the accepted definitions of the industry!)...

Same with furniture; patina's important, which is why when someone tries to sell a stripped-back piece of furniture to a dealer and the dealer says it isn't worth very much, the seller is dreadfully upset and doesn't understand. Which leads to an argument about whether or not wood can have a patina, or whether the word is only correctly applied to metal.

Much appreciated. As you may know uniform patina on a dial of a watch can often increase it's value substantially. I don't suspect that to be the case with antiques, but would love to know.
