The nature of antiques and art objects is that scale, color, texture, rarity and condition all play into what makes a piece appealing. These things are difficult to convey over the Internet. That is why www.chicago-antiques.com was created. It is about helping you find antique dealers to visit.
The design of this site is therefore based on several principles:
- Antiques and art objects need to be seen, touched and experienced.
- Quite often people don't know what they want until they see it.
- The vast majority of antique dealers (even those with web sites) don't show all their merchandise on the Internet. This means that very little of what is available can be seen online. You've got to get out and discover.
Our goal is to help you focus your efforts on those dealers that are likely to have what you are looking for at a price that you are willing to pay.
We invite you to browse our member dealers' showrooms to get a sense of the style and quality of merchandise offered. Then plan your trip to explore the showrooms and discover the wealth of antiques and art objects that are available throughout the Chicago area.
