Your intrepid treasure seeker here with a deceptively simple question. What's in an object? The motive and pedigree for two. The ideals of an era for three. Objects record human existence and you can learn a lot by studying them. Cherish it or throw it away. And different people are likely to do either given the same object. Like a book, an object reveals the mind of it's author, at least to those who take the time to examine it. It links the human element to the material. There's love buried in there, and frustration too. Object quality is an interesting window into the values held by civilizations, cultures, and yes, "brands" too. Example: Those early Jags were something (synergy) and still are (value). Revamped by new British owners bent on preserving the brand (integrity and vision) the Jag now looks pretty hot again (rebirth). If you'd never heard of Jaguar you'd know their whole back story by examining the evolution of their objects. The best objects transcend time and their component parts to become'classics'.
A classic exemplifies a vision and a realization of a dream: "getting it right". For an artisan it's a personal manifestation; for a company, a team that gels. This is how I understand Quality. Funny how every company you come across these days says they have it.
Tough to fake, easy to see. Bluewater Vintage auctions quality items that embody this principle.We have a love affair with sexy stuff! That doesn't mean every item we sell is a masterpiece, but we like great objects.
Sometimes elegant, sometimes just for fun. Be it a pinup poster, vintage speaker, or a 1,000 year old Chinese vase we choose whatever strikes our fancy and whatever the Universe delivers up. As the year unfolds we'll be offering a boutique collection of hand picked objects with heart and soul, the antidote to the modern junk pile. In a throw-away culture with mass produced throw-away junk (minds at work), it's satisfying to offer objects with staying power. Maybe you'll turn one into an heirloom.Us romantics think life is just plain better with cool stuff in the mix. These objects caught our'eye'.
Maybe they'll catch yours too. Come back often, and enjoy! Fine Print Notice : The following are the terms and conditions governing our auctions and sales. Whether you read them or not, they apply.
