We’re always talking about the importance of provenance on Flog It!. Provenance is the documented history of an item which helps prove authenticity and maximum sale price. Make make sure you keep photos, letters and other evidence in a safe place – they could make all the difference.

Familiar family pieces may have been sitting unremarked on the sideboard for generations. But yours could be the piece that completes someone else’s collection.  So take it to an auctioneer and get some advice.
