ATLANTA, GA, October 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The antique pottery experts, Art Pottery, would like to spend a few moments talking about why you may want to consider collecting pottery. While old currency (coin and bill) and comic book collections are commonly associated with making people money, it never hurts to diversify your interests. What a lot of collectors do not realize is that art pottery has long been a hot commodity with a sizable niche of buyers.
The prices on antique pieces are only guaranteed to increase too, given the fact that many leading manufacturers went out of business years ago. Brands like Roseville made some of the most beautiful and unique pottery art ever to reach the market, namely for the fact that the company's defining characteristic was its decision to hand craft each item. Simply put, you cannot find this type of quality in today's pottery, and this is exactly what drives the price up on antique items.
Why Collect Pottery
For those just starting out in the collecting business, pottery offers a unique advantage over other markets. For one, many pieces can be purchased at reasonable prices. Although the rates for every item ebb and flow with the market, the likely trend for the future is a healthy return on investment. A vase that costs $100 today may be worth a couple hundred in a few years. According to Manning Garrett, Owner of Art Pottery, "When you have an item that is in good condition that was produced 50 years ago, you have something worth holding onto. If you are serious about making money in this industry, keep an eye out for top brands like Roseville and Newcomb."
