    Some co­llectors think that articles made before 1830 are the real antiques. These items were hand-crafted by necessity in those days. Later with the ind­ustrial age having kicked in, many items were manufactured by machines. You need to spot the real antiques. Your visual inspection is the first step in detecting a restored, faked or reproduced antique. If you have serious doubts about an antique there are scientific high-tech methods like X-rays, microscopy and ultraviolet, CT scan and infrared analysis to authenticate their age and manufacture methods. Different cutting and sanding tools leave distinctive marks and give clues to the era during which a piece was made. ­

    The antique that was originally well-constructed with high-quality materials, excellent craftsmanship and design, will have high value even today. The originals are highly valued than well-crafted antique reproductions. Pieces in good condition with original finishes are preferred to those that have been restored, repaired or refinished.
