Format: Hardcover
This exhaustive, easy to use guide offers a wide verity of antiques and collectables in the victoriana, arts and crafts, art nouveau and deco styles, with everything from furniture, glass and ceramics to silver, textiles, jewelry and prints. It is full of valuable information about many different artists, focusing on the leading names in every field. The book outlines what to look for when presented with a certain object, what the pitfalls you need to avoid are, and how marks of the great artists should look like. It also gives descriptions of the fakes produced over the years and how to spot them. It is very well written, and full of many great photos as examples of the artists and movements featured-and all in full color. One very nice part of the book is the section "selected designers and manufacturers". In this section, there is a compilation of different artists and makers and their marks and signatures as they were marked or singed originally. Mr. Knowles definitely knows what he is talking about! It is only a shame he does not put a value estimate along side the many wonderful photos. I highly recommend this book as a reference guide to anyone interested in antiques.

extensive but not enough 3 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
covers a wide range of different antiques and styles with a focus on the main artists of each style,descriptions,marks,and tips for what to look out for, but does not provide enough examples of the works of each artist or factory featured. good reading,well written,extensive and informative. the book contains a good number of selected designers and manufacturers as well as the different marks of many of them and that is very helpful. the author,Eric Knowles,is one of the leading experts in the field and you notice that as you read. it is a shame he does not put a value estimate by the photos.
