What is a fair price to pay for ethical antiques?
This is an age-old question and antique valuation is all a part of the fun of antique buying! The price paid is in the eye of the beholder and often for antiques, there is a limited market and it’s more difficult to gauge a price. GoEthical would always recommend that buyers do their research and have a good idea of the value and authenticity of an antique before they buy the item.
