I have noticed in my long years of dealing that you are more likely to find something amazing and unexpected in an Antiques Market or fair, than you are at an auction. Auction goods have to be examined by the auction house and the catalogued along with accurate condition reports. As all auctions are now online, there is very little chance of finding an undiscovered miracle that has not been recognised. But those unexpected miracles can still be found in antique markets where the dealer may recognise quality in an object but not know how rare or valuable it is. My advice is keep going to markets, I do.
