Synopsis

Miller's Pocket Antiques and Collectables Fact Book All You Need to Know - In Your Pocket by Judith Miller

This is the only comprehensive, illustrated pocket book on the market for the antiques and collectables buyer. Each chapter explains what to look for when buying antiques - how to spot repairs and fakes, clues to dating and the history of factories and key designers. Comprehensive marks sections include international hallmarks and more than 1,000 marks from ceramics factories across the world: from 18th century Meissen to 20th century Rookwood.However, the market for antiques has changed dramatically: 20th century design, whether Art Deco or Mid Century Modern, has become a popular collecting area and so this completely reworked edition will keep the core information about antique furniture, ceramics, glass and silver while new sections will cover Modern Design - from Eames furniture to Murano glass, Spratling silver to Studio pottery. It contains all the essential information you need when you're on the antiques trail.
