I am not a collector but you don't need to be to ooh-and-aah over 1,000 illustratons (incredibly detailed). The book itself is a work of art: for instance, a treasure is too large for the one page so it spreads to the opposite page and miraculously the join is not evident.
(The same comments apply to DK's Art Deco.)

A lovely book, beautifully illustrated, clearly organised into different sctions, furniture, glass, jewellery etc. A pleasure to read. Also gives the reader an overall view of the period which would enable you to research favourite artists further.
