Spotting antiques from a junk shop is one way to make a mint and I continue to sharpen skills watching the Antiques Roadshow. I feel a long way from putting my money where my mouth is and investing in some bonafide silverwear, but tonights show made me think how we age photographs.
I know a friend who recruits visual artists on the basis of how well they can age a photograph or sketch. Whilst Hogarth's etchings may be a give away, there is a blurred line within centuries that are identified with a traditional costume, for example Regency ballgowns.
Hair's the thing! In recent years thanks to pop culture and technology fashions have become fast, furious and forged upon the memory. Mullet (70s), Curly perms (80s) Gamine-style crops (90s) all are a dead give away. Thank goodness for hair gel for sticking the decade to the print.
