Pots and vases are one of his favorite things. We saw them located all over his home. When asked upon that how it goes about the vases and pots of so many kinds and where from he bought all the beautiful pots he narrated the story saying these are all antique. He said that the best pots in the world could be found in Rome. He further told us that how can you find antique pots in Rome.

Through Trevin Agents:
Trevin agents are found all over the Rome. They are the people who are in charge of getting you to the vendors who sell stuff like antique items say like jewelry, pots, rings and more things that are considered by many as antique items. What you have to do it find the right Trevin agent for you, there are many scams going on, everybody is trying to sell you stuff that isn’t worth a dime but they make it look expensive and then they sell you the low quality stuff. So always stay vigilant of what you get and which kind of agent you are talking to and he is getting your stuff.

Through Botanical museums:
Another way to getting yourself the antique pots are the botanical museums found there. In those museums they ask you about your background, which social class you belong to, what kind of a taste in antiques you have, which are the mainly focused areas of the things that you like but you have to come over all these things for the fact of the matter which choses you to be the one as the best person who could take care of the stuff SaqibSoomro said about.

The marksmanship remains to be the best render quality of the pots that are bought from here which are in turn kind of an investment for lifetime.

Pots screening:
The main thing which comes after finding a vendor is that once you are done with finding the right vendor the next step is to get yourself the pot screening. Now as you can see that even at times the vendors are made fooled by the people they bought the pots from, because it’s a very tricky game, everybody is a vulture there, what they do is that they trick the best vendors even and they fail to realize that they are selling the pot which is not genuine SaqibSoomro said. Even the best looking pots are not worth a single penny now it is your job to screen them that can be done by taking them to the ancient historians who will tell you that either these pots are real, genuine, or entirely fake. So make sure you do your homework before going to Rome to buy yourself the ancient pots.

Tips when buying antique furniture by Saqib Soomro

When he went to take his interview on the tips when it comes to buying antique furniture, he said that he had a lot to say, and these tips aren’t just for anybody who wants to buy the furniture but to the person who holds the passion of having an antique piece or unit in his house.

The Monetary need
He states that the most important thing when buying antique furniture is the person’s ability to buy the antique furniture because the antique furniture costs a lot. It is always good for a person to start saving because the ancient and vintage collectable items are always expensive. Just because of the fact that they have a heritage attached to it. It may be the case that the certain unit that you are trying to buy have come from various kinds and their dynasties, and the thing is the price attached to it isn’t over at all because its mandatory for such a thing to have a price tag which only a few people with the passion and desire for having such an artwork could only you afford and take care of.

Distinguishing between the imposters and the genuine
Furthermore when we asked him about how a layman person would go and identify a unit as an antique and how can he distinguish the between the real and the fake. Mr. Saqib Soomro states that the furniture which is antique would have certain chemicals which are needed to be put on it to keep it in a working condition. Because of their old age factors they go through the wear and tear that comes with the age, but the problem part or the most difficult part lies in the fact that how do you keep them preserved. It has often been the case that people here would sell you something by calling it antique which is actually not. You need to make sure that your dealer is trustworthy and real and doesn’t have malpractices like not bringing out the true story of the actual furniture that he is selling.

It may require travelling

Antique units are found all over the world. Sometimes the thing is that the antique furniture is placed in the places where the art crafts of the ancient world are kept and preserved. So it is a person’s duty that if he wants to acquire a certain piece of antique furniture he must be willing to travel abroad. Mr. Saqib Soomro states that the best way to make yourself travel worthy is by first getting the visas of the country which are easier to get so that you ink your passports the right way. Because only once that your passport is ready and well inked, you will get the visas of the country easily which holds the most amount of ancient furniture from the former kinds and their dynasties. Because usually all these items are seen and found in the part of European Union.
