This book covers most of the main areas of collecting in the antique world and offers really helpful advice in restoring and repairing antiques to a high standard. I have since used the step by step advice on reupholstering chairs and mending china and found the explanations clear and accessible. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a go themselves, though probably not for beginners with a valuable object. Then I would suggest leaving it to the experts! However, at least you will understand something of the expert processes!
