Antique & Vintage Clock FAQs
How much are vintage antique clocks worth?
Authentic vintage clocks are highly sought after by antique collectors in the United Kingdom, as well as in any other location around the world, especially when they’re from a known brand, are in great condition and when their original parts are still intact. If these clocks haven’t undergone much change or have been maintained and restored carefully, they would still be able to retain a high value. An old fashioned clock such as one of the rare vintage clocks for sale UK collectors are raving about can cost up to £78,000. The surprising thing about an antique piece - in this case a clock - is that you can sometimes find it in the most unlikely of places. You may be expecting to find it in a rustic yet classy home, or even in a white country house with windows of glass, but it can also end up in your parents’ modest childhood home. There are stories of finding a valuable antique in the attic of an old house that was recently acquired or inherited from the parents, so you may want to check out your own property and its rustic home decor for these things. Who knows, you may see an old wall clock in your own attic or in the basement.
How do I know if my clock is an antique clock?
When you find one of these antique things, especially from an unlikely location, it’s best not to dismiss it as simply a home decor that’s no longer fashionable and get rid of it in favour of contemporary pieces. You may be in for a surprise when you find out it’s an antique that once graced the wall of the house of a prominent family in the country. We recommend that you take that wall clock to an appraiser just to be sure. If it’s indeed valuable, you will be pleased to know that like art, each of these clocks aren’t just great for home decor. As years pass, these clocks can increase in value. You may want to see the wide range of clocks - from vintage wall clock to longcase style - that we have in our online shop. You’d definitely spot a wall clock that would perfectly fit as a home decor in your contemporary home, whether you want a rustic country or a luxurious look. It would be a wonderful addition to your living room, den, foyer, entrance hall, or in any other location in your property. For the best antique and functional home decor in the country, visit our shop.
How do you identify an antique clock?
A clock is a common home decor not just in modern times but also in the bygone days. To be able to say that a clock is antique, it has to be at least a hundred years old. Like their contemporary counterparts, antique clocks differ in shape, colour and material - mostly wood, but they also come in metals like silver, gold and brass. Determining if you are looking at an antique, be it longcase or wall clock, goes beyond knowing the width and other dimensions. Before looking at the other characteristics, such as colour, shape and style, you should first look at the brand or the maker’s name, which could be stamped, engraved or indicated on a paper label. You’ll see it on the face of the dial (which is usually white). The usual location is near the centre face and around the edge. If it can’t be found on the white dial, you may want to see the backplate of the movement, on the back of the clock or inside the clock case. Some paper labels include the location or country of origin.
How do I sell antique clocks?
You have to be aware of the value of what you're selling, whether it be an antique or vintage wall clock, so we recommend that you see an appraiser in the United Kingdom first. However, you have to be careful to only approach reputable experts so you won’t be fooled into selling your antique longcase or wall clock at a much lesser price. Once you've found an expert you can trust and he or she has established the authenticity of your antique longcase or wall clock and determined how much your clock is worth, there are lots of ways you can sell it. The best of which is through an online shop, where real collectors can see your antique clock. Collectors and dealers have been using our online shop to discover rare items, so rest assured you’ll be getting a good price for your antique wall clock. Buyers are also given the chance to directly interact with the sellers. Aside from the brand, colour and other information on the antique, our shop also provides a form that allows and provides the dealer a chance to call or email the buyer. The buyer simply has to leave an email address and a phone number.
How do I know if my clock is valuable?
To an untrained eye, a clock that’s antique no longer has a place in the contemporary world. However, to a collector of antique, the odd-looking home decor of gold, silver or wood hanging on someone’s wall is actually valuable. Just like art, the gold antique wall clock you may have in your possession is more than a pretty home decor. It can be an heirloom you can hand down to the generations that would follow you or it can be a source of a lot of money. Antique and vintage clocks are unique and can be lucrative, and you should know how to identify them yourself so as not to miss an opportunity of getting huge profit out of them. We recommend that you see a reputable appraiser to verify the authenticity as well as the value of your vintage or antique wall clock, which can help you decide on the best course of action as well as the best price for your wall clock. You’ll also get to add more information that you could use in conversations or in selling your wall clock.
Does age make an antique clock more valuable?
The older the clock, the higher the value, but identifying authentic antique clocks can be challenging, as looks can be deceiving. There are clocks that look antique - with the right style, material, and colour - but are actually not that old. Also, not all antique and vintage clocks are valuable, as the brand of an antique also plays a big part in its value. Along with evidence of the clock being handmade such as irregularity in the shape, you have to find out the brand. Back then, antique and vintage clocks were considered as works of art, and some brands were known to use a particular style, material and even colour. Thus, aside from the trademark and initials you may find on the dial or the back of the clock, it’s also best to be familiar with the style of a particular brand or even country of origin.
