Looking for discontinued pages about antiques or silver hallmarks?

Collectiques was established in 1998, offering a directory of antiques and collectables dealers, auction houses, retailers and web sites.  The directory provided an extensive pool of information and proved very popular.  However, time does not stand still and as things moved on the directory was progressively phased out.

Collectiques online shop opened originally alongside the directory and initially offered quite a variety of collectable items, from teapots to teddy bears.  Soon the online catalogue began to get very specialised, eventually boasting an extensive range of collectable models and toys.
