The course will present opportunities for the participants to understand some basic and advance insights on how to identify and date various antiques. The instructor’s background as a historian and professor/ university dean will allow the students to be aware of cultural and historical significance of antiques up to contemporary influences.
The class will have opportunities to share their possessions that they wish to have examined. The instructor, a student of the Rinker’s Institute for the study of antiques and collectibles (Philadelphia, PA) will provide his expertise in identifying and evaluating the student’s items. The class will also be invited to share their insights.
The course also will present the state and health of antiques today, coming of the great recession. We will explore how to safely purchase antiques and also the many ways one has to sell his/ her possessions. Both buying and selling can be difficult to maneuver and we will explore some very specifics regarding both processes. The role of internet site, TV programs, and other social media with their impact on antiques will be discussed. Students will at the start of the course discuss what specifically they wish to learn and cover in the course. Classroom participation will be encouraged.
