Welcome to Ridges Antiques, where since 1993, collectors have consistently been overjoyed to find a veritable treasure trove of high quality, competitively priced antique and country/cottage furniture, plus a huge variety of sought after collectable pieces, tastefully displayed for visitors’ viewing pleasure.
Collectables include (but are not limited to) silver, brass and copperware, crystal glassware, porcelain, memorabilia and collectable smalls. Additionally, Ridges Antiques offers a host of related services and is renowned for its comprehensive, eclectic collections, extensive services, ethics and fair, competitive pricing.
Everyone has their own story to tell about their love of and desire to collect old things. Some are reminded of childhood or fondly recall happy, carefree times spent with grandparents, surrounded by that generation’s possessions, much of which was handed down repeatedly, across several generations.
Other collectors are attracted by the value of yesterday’s objects, regarding antiques primarily as investment pieces, since values continue to increase as availability decreases, whilst specialised craftsmanship dies out.
Global warming is a reality, nudging us to revise our relationship with nature and the past. By continuing to use and reuse antique pieces, you’re protecting natural resources and diminishing your carbon footprint. Collectable items have endured for a very long time and can continue to serve many future generations with the function, style and grace of a past era. Phone, send an email or pop in to Ridges Antiques at Merrowdown Plaza whenever you’re in the Sandton/Fourways area. Purchase a piece of history, have your treasures restored or simply browse in peace, feeding your soul with memories evocative of yesteryear - entirely at your leisure. You’re invited and most welcome.
