What do we buy?
At Sarasota Antique Buyers, our name says it all. Based in Sarasota, we have been travelling all over the state to help Bradenton residents and all Floridians with any and all of their buying and selling needs! As experienced dealers, we are interested in all items, no matter if they are worn or in perfect condition.
In particular, we are interested in English and Continental 18th-20th century items, as well as modern and traditional furniture. We know that each piece’s worth will depend on a variety of things, including condition, age, quality, time period, rarity and who it was made by. However, it is important to note that a very rare piece that is extremely worn can actually be worth more than other common item in perfect condition. Regardless, we love finding new antiques when we visit Bradenton and learning about their history.
Some items we buy often include:
*Paintings: 18th and 19th century art, oils, watercolors, drawings, lithographs, etchings, and prints from excellent to poor condition– even those without signatures by major artists
*Porcelain & Ceramics: Architectural, animals, pottery, people, and warriors, as well as 18th and 19th century European and Chinese ceramics, Meissen, Dresden, Worcester, Coalport, Minton, Wedgwood, Vienna, Sevres, Paris, Rozenburg, Royal Doulton, and Royal Doulton figurines
*Furniture: Bamboo, benches, chairs, chests, tables, and alter tables
*Jewelry: Gold and Silver earrings, bracelets, rings, hair pins, and antique engagement rings
*Sterling Silver: Jewelry, silverware, centerpieces, coins, tea sets, vanity items
*Textiles: Clothing and scrolls
*Stones: Jade and agate
*Silver: Vintage, tea sets, boxes, flatware and silverware, 925 sterling silver
*Gold: Rings, bracelets, earrings, hat pins, and others
*Old coins and collections
*Nautical ship models
*American Continental Asian 18th and 19th Century Art
At Sarasota Antique Buyers, we offer a variety of services in order to help as many people in Bradenton as possible. We currently offer these services:
*Brokering. As your broker, we will decide how much the antique is worth, and then work with you to decide what the best way to sell it would be. Some common choices are meeting with a collector, another dealer, or going to auction. From common pieces to precious family heirlooms, you can be confident that we will get you the very best price. Our brokering services simply involved a commission for the sale, along with the cost of analysis.
*Consignment. Once you cosign an item, it will be up for sale on a national level. We regularly participate in local Bradenton shows, as well as shows on the national and international levels, so we will find the perfect buyer, even if they are in Germany! Like the brokering, this will involve an analysis fee as well as commission.
*Estate Sale. If you have a large amount of antique items you need to sell, an estate sale may be the best route for you. We will take care of everything, from pricing to advertising to setting up and running the sale. Afterwards, we will clean up, and you will have your profits as soon as possible! This is a great option if you have several large pieces of furniture for sale.
