Synopsis

Antiques from the Garden by Alistair Morris

The very diverse range of antique associated with the garden covers garden tools, terracotta wares, cast-iron containers, garden furniture, bridges and summer houses. There has been growing interest in them in recent years, not only from collectors but also from designers in many fields, as these antiques become increasingly used as a source of inspiration. Aa a collecting area, it is still in its infancy but has all the ingrediants a potential collector would choose. There is history, geography, economics, workmanship and engineering. There are makers' marks and trademarks, common, scarce and rare varieties. Now in this enlarged edition, there are many colour and black and white illustrations, including some early trade advertisements from scarce magazines.
