Antiques and collectibles on Vinterior

Antiques and collectibles are items of value that are over 100 years old. At Vinterior, our selection of collectibles spans five centuries. Each era brings its own unique style, craftsmanship and materials. And each pieces tells its own story.


The 1500s saw the advent of the English Renaissance, which took place in the reign of King Henry VIII and brought many European influences into British art. In particular, it was characterised by the revival of classical Greek and Roman themes and ideals.


The 1600s were a time of great change. Jacobean antiques (1605-1625) are plainer and more utilitarian than pieces from the preceding period. The predominant material used for antiques from the Jacobean age is oak. This is also true of antiques made between 1649-1660, during the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. These were years of austerity, where decorousness was frowned upon, and foreign influences were limited. By contrast, those produced in the reign of Charles II, who had spent his years in exile in France and the Netherlands, were very continental. At this time, the Baroque style started to come into its own in Britain. Antique collectibles from 1660-1885 are commonly gilded, lacquered, or veneered. Walnut replaced oak as the wood of choice for carpentry work.


Simple elegance were the watchwords at the start of the eighteenth century. The Baroque style reached its peak in the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714), bringing with it more decorative flourishes. Lacquered walnut chests were very popular. The claw and ball foot were introduced to furniture and accessories for the first time. After the death of Queen Anne, a trio of King Georges came to the throne, and the Georgian period lasted until 1811. Georgian furniture and accessories took inspiration from what had come before but made them more extravagant. For example, mahogany replaced walnut as the most popular wood for crafting, and carvings became very ornate. The Georgians were also fond of elaborate stonework. Towards the end of the period, a new severity of design emerged.


The start of the 1800s saw a revival of neoclassicism – and there was increased interest in Ancient Egypt, in particular. Gothic and Chinese styles also regained some of their former standing. Regency antiques are characterised by their plain and straight lines. The Victorians struck a fine balance between imposing and comfortable, and returned to curved instead of straight lines. Mahogany was still very popular, but rosewood was also used to make furniture and accessories.

Where to display antiques and collectibles?

For overall elegance, display your antiques and collectibles on an antique sideboard, or on a side table from a more contemporary era. We also have a brilliant collection of glass display cabinets, ideal to keep antique collectibles in eyesight.

What are the best antiques to collect?

Collect what you love to surround yourself with. China, pottery, taxidermy, photographs, stamps to name but a few. If you’re looking at making a significant financial investment, consider collectibles and antiques that are rarer and therefore more sought after. Opt for older artefacts to harness the provenance of something that has already lasted a lifetime. Display your finds and enjoy the collecting journey.
