Investing in Antique Furniture?

In the current climate we are more concerned about the environment, and appreciate again good quality furniture that will last and last for generations. Throw-away items that choke up our landfill sites is good for no one. We may not always wish to keep our antique furniture forever but we will have the opportunity to pass it on to our relatives or sell it on and invest in something else. As an investment, it can make good sense to enjoy the financial  investments we have in a tangible form rather than leaving it in poorly performing accounts. Good quality antique furniture will always sell even if some styles go out of fashion at times. Although brown furniture did see a slump in popularity in England it has remained popular in Italy, USA and Canada

Polishing and Cleaning:
Waxing with a good quality polish based on beeswax brings out the color and grain of the wood and provides protection. Do not use spray polishes as these often contain a large amount of water which will adversely affect french polished surfaces and leave white marks. Put a small amount of polish on a soft cloth and rub the piece until the wax on the cloth shines. This will burnish the surface and evaporate any solvent. Then polish with a clean duster. If possible, apply the wax at night to allow it to nourish the wood and polishing regularly
