First Sentence
Antique furniture has for many years proven to be a very good investment and English furniture in particular has risen in price over the last twenty years, perhaps more than any other form of investment. Read the first page

i use this book for authentic descriptions of furniture in the stories I write. Clear pictures, names of designers/makers and details of materials use.

More than just a price book 15 April 2001
By bernie - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is more than just a price book. It uses a series of questions to help you nail down just what you are looking at. In the BASICS section you find the different types of glazes as Lead glaze, Tin glaze, and Salt glaze. The book is small enough that I carry this with me.
Some of the highlights are:
Uses a unique question-and -answer approach to help you identify and date genuine antique glass
Deals with fakes, copies, condition and other factors that may confuse even experienced collectors
Analyses typical items that collectors can find in shops and auction houses
Gives Guidelines to values
Contains a wealth of background information, including an extensive glossary
Is a thorough introductory course for the beginner and also a superb refresher for those with some collecting experience.
