of antiquities (gathered in barns)
Some of these antiquities are real gems requiring merely to be dusted.
Others would resume their authenticity and beauty with a coat of paint or varnish.
Some go inside a house and others serve as high quality "outdoor furniture" on a lawn, and thus become pleasant landmarks for passersby.
It is, in one way or another, a way to preserve this rich patrimony that is part of our heritage.
One thing is certain, they will increase in value over time.
