New Deco Look – Amaroo Antiques & Art – Maryborough, Victoria

Posted on July 10, 2013


Amaroo New Design Front  Amaroo Front Window Redesign  Amaroo China Shelves

Amaroo Antiques & Art of Maryborough have featured at Art of Elegance Fairs and events, but won’t be trading at Jazz in July 2013 because they will be at their own store, showing off their brand new Deco look!  The shopfront has been revamped to highlight unique 30’s effects that were always part of the original design, and given that it’s one of their favourite era styles, the right thing  to do is share this news. The signage looks elegant with the new colour scheme, reflecting the owners’ tastes.   They have an excellent range of home decor items, fabulous china including collectible Japan ware, rare Euro pieces, early Australian, plus everything retro for kitchen, tea and table service, and small furniture pieces as well.  The walls of this cosy treasure trove are covered in framed art from all eras, wall vases and curios.   Eric and Mary have a great eye, feature great prices, and know how to put it all together, so don’t hesitate to ask questions on collecting.  There is also an appraisal and repair service available, so don’t discard an item simply because it isn’t “perfect”.  Schools of thought in antiques and collecting circles have recently changed, allowing items that have stood the test of time to show a few signs of wear, in order to prove their genuine roots and story.  Online resources such as Andrew Baseman’s Past Imperfect in New York incorporate only those items that have been inventively repaired, which opens another exciting area of collecting.  As time moves on all collector items just become more valuable, because they can never be made again, and copies just don’t have the history that gives charm.   It’s a good idea to be quick if you spot an interesting item at Amaroo, as key pieces crop up quickly, and get snapped up just as quickly!  See below for contact details and opening hours…
