The “Hot” New CollectiblesWritten by Laura Thykeson - Owner of "Ice Originals II - Vintage Collectibles, Music and Jewelry"
A few months ago I wrote an article named “Signed vs. Unsigned - Buying Art, Pottery and Collectibles”. The basic premise of article was my own opinion about “Should you pay price for signed jewelry, art and collectibles, as opposed to buying what you love, whether signed or unsigned?”. Since writing that article, I have read in one of my many collectible newsletters and magazines that “hot” new collectible trend is buying unsigned and unknown artist and artisan items. I personally think this is great! Not only does it help collectibles market, in several different areas such as unsigned jewelry, studio art pottery and original artworks, who is to say what that “unknown artist” or unsigned item will someday be worth? Picasso received hardly any recognition while alive, but after his death, we all know where prices went on his works, straight through roof! If you are a collector, this is perfect time to start turning your buying trends towards unsigned items, or as yet, unknown makers. The prices are much lower than normal collectible names, as well as fact that no matter what market you are buying in - BUY WHAT YOU LOVE! This way, you don’t end up spending a fortune on an item that in five years may not even be considered a good collectible investment. Remember “Beanie Baby”© craze? Well, now there are tons of folks out there with mountains of “beanies” that they may have paid a small fortune for, and I sure hope they love them because that market is pretty much dead! The difference between paying $150.00 for a Beanie Baby© during insanity of craze feels much worse when bottom drops out of market, than spending $150.00 for a couple of beautiful art pottery bowls or vases, especially if you love look of items anyway. When you look at items that you purchased, ones that could possibly become not only valuable collectibles based on development of artist during their creating lifetime or at very least, loved heirlooms that are passed on in a family, this all begins to make a lot of sense. If you buy what appeals to you, you can never go wrong. It is my philosophy to by what is aesthetically and artistically appealing to me, is unique, and I could care less whether artist or maker is “known and listed” or not! Five years from now, I will not be crying over my purchase and money I spent, I will still be loving item as much when I purchased it, if not more! If it goes up in value, so much better. That is just a wonderful side fact that doesn’t even enter my mind at time of purchase. I buy because I like what I see, hear, feel, etc. Perhaps this is why so many are turning to unsigned and unmarked items, without quite as much emphasis on signatures or hallmarks. Sure it’s nice to own a full parure of Miriam Haskell jewelry. But, I am more content with an unsigned, unique sterling pin for a fraction of price, that I can actually wear and show off for a fraction of price I would have paid for Haskell name.
