The Value of Antiques and Objects of Art: Do You Know What You Own?
With Dick Mattingley
Date: Five sessions on Tuesdays, April 25, May 2, 9, 16, 23
Location: Van Lennep Auditorium, CBMM Campus
The collecting of antiques, a multi-million dollar per year business, can be described as a hobby, a passion, an obsession, or even a sickness. This course is designed to give the student and the collector an idea of the value of their collection and whom they can trust when buying or selling antiques. We will examine quality antiques and discuss whether the object is good, better, best, or a masterpiece. The first four sessions will examine the criteria for evaluating objects of art. The fifth session will be the instructor’s version of the PBS series, the Antiques Roadshow. Students are invited to bring one antique for analysis and evaluation at the last class.
