Just remember that the first models are always the preferred when it comes to collectibles, even if they cannot truly be called antique. The true antiques start with wooden constructions.
Furniture has been produced in great quantities throughout the centuries. Styles have changed radically and dramatically with the needs and attitudes of society, and have been significantly influenced by the coming of the machine age. In earlier years social status and economics were dominant influences. High-backed chairs with wide seats and arm rests were initially made for judges and royalty. Even as they entered the common household, seating with sides and backs were intended for the head of the house, everyone else having to sit on stools, benches, or the floor. As time progressed, the demands for comfort increased, seats became softer, and the furniture makers rose in stature. Demand for their products increased, especially for the more ornate and comfortable pieces, ensuring regular employment. As machines became more capable of creating stronger and lighter pieces, mass production was the norm. These outputs were influenced by styles of construction that roamed the centuries and the globe. This meant that individual items that survived time and usage, marked historical periods and locations, giving rise to identifiable units. As the better-made pieces survived longer, early furniture examples became rare. The recent dramatic increase in the popularity of antiques, has led to eyebrow-raising value for many early examples. At the same time it has resulted in the production of fakes. The wise collector must do his research before he puts his money on the table. Skilled forgers often re-use old wood and parts to emulate desired antique furniture. This can include unfinished furniture that has been artificially aged, or niche collectibles like baby furniture. If prices indicate discount furniture that claims to be antique, then look for signs of aging applied to contemporary furniture.
