Where should you go to make your initial forays into the world of antiques? How can you recognize a fake? What makes one item more collectible than another? And what might make a good investment for the future?
All these questions and more are answered in Discovering Antiques, a comprehensive guide that not only has chapters on all the main collecting areas - Furniture, Pottery and Porcelain, Glass, Silver, Clocks, Dolls, Bears, Toys, Textiles, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco - but also looks at a host of other collectible and newly collectible items including pens, ephemera, rock and pop memorabilia, cameras, radios, plastics, and many others.
Throughout the book, special annotated photographs of typical pieces show in detail all their important features, including what to look for and what to avoid. With additional sections on where and how to buy and sell antiques, and how to insure, care and store for them, and with prices given throughout, Discovering Antiques is the complete guide to becoming your own antiques expert.
