Are you all set to go furniture shopping for your home? Wouldn’t it be nice to buy a piece of furniture that would actually go up in value over time? Many antique guns & militaria  do appreciate in value, not like new mass-produced furniture. Imagine adding an antique that will add character and warmth to a room, but also go up in value! What should you look for in these antiques?

The most important rule is to choose a piece that you fall in love with because it will look good in your home. When you want to ensure that the piece will appreciate in value, however, you will want to consider the rarity of the antique guns.

What is it that makes an antique rare? One antique dealer put it very well.  She said that if none of your neighbors have a piece like yours, it’s worth something. If no one in your city has the same piece, it’s worth more. And if no one in your state owns a piece like you have, your antique is very valuable!

Of course it does depend to some degree on why your piece is rare. It might be because it was not a popular design when it was made — people might have considered it too big, too noisy, or simply too ugly. If you like it, though, its rarity is still an advantage.

One reason why a piece is rare today is because only a few pieces were made in the first place. As an example,  there were probably only a few solid silver snuff boxes made because only the very rich would have been able to afford them.  Another reason for the rarity of a piece is that, while many were originally made, only a few pieces remain.
