A Rare Gem
“We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.”
Iris Murdoch, Author/Philosopher
I love antiques and the thrill and the competition of winning them at auctions. I have gone to hundreds of auctions and have found wonderful pieces, from beautiful 19th century china and rare Civil War pieces to decorative arts pieces from the 20th century. Not only am I fascinated at the prospect of the pieces I may find, I am always in awe of the psychology and buying patterns at work among fellow buyers at the sale.
