All About Antique Boxes And Collectables A Personal Review



All About Antique Boxes And Collectables - a​ Personal Review.
In every true sense, an​ antique is​ said to​ be any item (may not be essentially artistic in​ nature) that is​ over a​ century year old .​
People collect all kinds of​ antiques, but undoubtedly among the most fascinating are antique boxes .​
For sure, I​ don’t expect you to​ share my view as​ all antiques are personal favorites .​
But I​ personally feel that antique boxes signify the spirit of​ the antique that we all find so fascinating.
In my opinion, antique boxes spell treasure .​
In my earlier days, I​ spent a​ lot of​ time reading stories of​ treasure chests and pirates like Robinson Crusoe, Swiss family Robinsons, Treasure Island and the like.
In a​ number of​ these stories, one would read about these antique boxes that were filled with the promise of​ treasure even though there was no true treasure .​
But ever since, antique boxes have held a​ remarkable fascination for me.
I was truly surprised when I​ stopped at​ my regular bookshop and discovered that he had quite a​ number of​ antique boxes displayed prominently at​ the counter .​
What’s more he had gone a​ step further to
pack these antique boxes with books to​ reinforce the treasure that lay in​ books and reading, however I​ was simply consumed by the sight, smell and look of​ those antique boxes.
Almost immediately I​ rushed in​ to​ ask him where he had procured them .​
Though to​ me, he was more than an​ acquaintance and was aware about my fascination with antique boxes .​
Even then, he pretended ignorance for a​ while before breaking down helplessly in​ laughter .​
As he sat there with tears of​ mirth flowing down his eyes, I​ could not but help wonder anxiously about the antique boxes and how he had managed to​ get his hands on them .​
He did however tell me the truth, as​ soon as​ he calmed down sufficiently .​
Well, it​ seems that there were quite a​ number of​ people like me around the world who also found ancient antique boxes (with or​ without any treasure) fascinating .​
As a​ result one proactive Chinese company had decided to​ capitalize on this attraction by making near real replicas of​ antique boxes .​
Despite the fact I​ was initially disappointed, a​ closer look led me to​ believe that if​ the boxes I​ saw were replicas of​ antique boxes, then they were sure damn good replicas .​
In spite of​ the reasonable price tag though unlike the real thing, I​ decided instantly to​ get a​ couple of​ them for myself .​
Today, I​ too am a​ proud owner of​ a​ couple of​ antique boxes.
