8 tips for buying antique furniture:

Look closely to see how the piece was made

Does the piece you’re looking at have drawers? If so, pull them out and look at how they were constructed. That will reveal if the piece was handmade or not. “Look at the side of the drawer—you should see dovetails,” says Holter. “And on the inside of the drawer front, where it meets with the sides, there there should also be larger cut marks. Those are called kerf marks. They indicate where the cabinet maker was cutting out the dovetails in the drawer face to be attachedsecond hand dealer pawn shop vintage antiques george with the drawer sides. It’s sort of the leftover marks that the saw created. You want to see those. They are tell-tale signs of hand craftsmanship.”

Check out the hardware

While you have the drawer out looking for dovetails, don’t forget to inspect the hardware, too. “When you pull a drawer out and look at the back of the handle, you should expect to see a threaded post and a nut securing that brass to the drawer front,” says Holter. “If you don’t see that nut and just see what looks to be the top of a slotted or flathead screw going towards the face of the drawer, then that is an indication that the hardware is newer. It’s also a good indication that the piece is not old as well.”

Try to find a signature, a label, or a stamp

While signatures are rare on pieces from the 17th and 18th centuries, Holter says to check on the backs and undersides of drawers (which, as we have come to realize, hold a lot of information about the age and authenticity of a piece of furniture!) to potentially find pencil marks or chalk signatures that may indicate who made the piece and where it was produced. Does the piece you’re looking at not have a drawer? Check either its back or its bottom.
