Antiques for all
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.
