This review is from: Antiques Detective: Tips and tricks to make you the expert (Paperback)
This is the excellent story of a young lady who started collecting penny plates in Edinburgh in the 1960s and graduated to car boot sales and auctions learning all the time and 3 decades later produces this first class book.
The book covers a)styles and movements b)furniture c)ceramics d)glass e)metalware and f)Collectables and photographs illustrating wood,handles, chair backs,legs, feet,and glass marks etc. (It should be noted that oriental marks appear on page 216 and not page 214 for glass marks and vice versa)
The text is very good particularly some of the boxed insets while the illustrations are superb.
The author is to be congratulated in producing such a fine book.
