Figurine Collecting

By: Jarad Nelson

Figurines are wonderful collectors items. A figurine, often called a small statue or doll, usually looks like a small animal or human figure, often an artistic impression of some human character or animal. A figurine collection can make great a home decor addition and will personalize any home with your own artistic style. As a figurine is a small statue, it can be placed on table tops mantle pieces and anywhere else your imagination can come up with.

Figurines, these days, are made from many different types of materials, like resin, for example. Figurines used to be created for religious or ceremonial reasons, but like any piece of art, they are now found in many forms, shapes and sizes to satisfy the more decorative reasoning of our modern day culture.

Here are some types of figurines you could get:
owl figurines
frog figurines
elephant figurines
gargoyle figurines
border terrier figurine
eagle figurines
buddah figurines
great dane figurines

The person with the figurine fetish may stick to only 1 famous figurine brand. These could include household names such as Lladro Figurines which are sought after by many avid collectors.

The amount of choices you have regarding figurine types can be quite overwhelming. Most often, newbie collectors will begin with a specific type of figurine, such as horse figurines or figurines of a specific material, such as resin figurines. The budget for figurines can be quite low or very high, depending on what you are prepared to pay. Lladro figurines for example can cost over $200 for one item. On the other hand you could pay about $12 for a decent ceramic figurine if you prefer. Searching action sites, flea markets or other swap and trade type sites could yield many treasures if you look carefully!

The cost of figurines can range from very high (for famous brands such as Lladro etc) to very low. These expensive brands, the best choice for the avid collectors due to the fact that their value increase over time, can be quite expensive, due to their rarity and increasing value. Because of this, attempting to shop for these items in your local stores may leave you feeling numb once you've seen the prices they may go for. In this situation, using the net to find that classy Royal Doulton or detailed Hummel figurine is your best option. Due to low competition and the very low cost of doing business on the net, the prices will be much less making the figurine affordable and worth it, as any professional collector will tell you.

So, whether you are looking for an item to create an awe inspiring collection (which will increase in value over the years!), something beautiful to decorate your home, or even a thoughtful gift for a loved one, a figurine can be the perfect choice.
