Buying antiques is easy, but maintaining is not. An antique furniture item sees a lot of wear and tear over the years of use and restoring and repairs often becomes necessary. Any restoration work is well worht getting done by professionals if you wish to maintain the value of the furniture item. A sloppy restoration job will reduce the value of your cherished antique furniture item to a considerable extent.
Quite often antique furniture items become wobbly and require support. The wood used for such support and other fittings used to hold the original piece intact can be instrumental in reducing its value. As far as possible it is preferable to avoid such additions if there is no absolute need. In case of scratches and other evidence of wear and tear, it makes sense to let them be since these only add to the personality of an antique.
