LAPADA have launched a new app which showcases members’ stock in the form of a quiz.
Free to download from iTunes and sponsored
by Antiques Trade Gazette, the game probes contestants'
knowledge in four specialist categories: furniture and
clocks, ceramics and glass, fine art and sculpture and silver and
Each question is ilustrated with an object
from a LAPADA dealer and there are three levels of difficulty.
Clearly the app is intended to reach out to a new audience, but
with players' results posted on an online scoreboard members of the
trade may well put in some time to prove their expertise.
The game was conceived by LAPADA director
Sean Clarke of Christopher Clarke Antiques, a former winner of the
ATG Pub Quiz.
"There is so much knowledge and experience
among the LAPADA members and such fantastic stock, this quiz app
presents a wonderful opportunity to showcase both in a manner that
is entertaining and informative," he said.
The game will be automatically refreshed as LAPADA members add
fresh stock and questions. LAPADA point out that their quiz is the
only app on antiques from the 9000 currently available to download
