Historically Important

Historically Important

Contrary to general antiques and collectables, historically important pieces refer to items with a verifiable history or provenance adding value to the piece through its notoriety. Perhaps once owned by someone famous or associated with an important historical event.

​In 2011, a pair of ample bloomers once owned by Britain's Queen Victoria was sold for more than £9,000 (A$16,000) at an Edinburgh auction, more than three times the original estimate! If you'd like to find out more about your item in this category, contact us today for a free assessment.
