An­tiques for all

Friday - - Society -

Bid­ding at a fine art auc­tion might sound like some­thing only the rich and fa­mous can af­ford to do, but Es­tu­ary Auc­tions begs to dif­fer. Prices for items at its sale next weekend start from just Dh500, and there’s ev­ery­thing from Vic­to­rian fur­ni­ture and 19th-cen­tury sil­ver, to an­tique jew­ellery, Ja­panese porce­lain and mod­ern art. A great way to get a taste for col­lect­ing, or to find un­usual items to dec­o­rate your home, we have a soft spot for this orig­i­nal of Jaber Al­wan’s The Mask – al­though with an es­ti­mate of Dh180,000, we might be dodg­ing the ham­mer this time around. At Mina A’Salam ho­tel, Novem­ber 1-2.
