Antique Dealers: the British Antique Trade in the 20th Century

All Sales

IN DEVELOPMENT!....caution, people at Work!

This part of the Project Database Website will contain information of various sales of antiques - from dealers to dealers, dealers to collectors, dealers to museums. We are currently working on developing 'case studies' of sales.

Once the case studies are developed, you will be able to track an object, through it's sale biography, as it passes through various dealers, through time. One of the ambitions of this part of the project database website is to allow visitors to the website to trace the provenance history of objects, and (crucially,for us!) to track the changing descriptions of objects as they pass through time and space, allowing us to map a cultural geography of objects, as they move within the art market - a specific (though constantly changing) social, cultural, economic and political framework. 

We hope that will inspire you to return to the site to see how we are getting on!
