For the past thirty years this book has, in its various editions, outsold all others on British antique furniture simply because it is unique in explaining what to look for when assessing the value of individual pieces. In this, the fifth edition, the huge financial importance of patination and colour has been explained and illustrated – something which has become increasingly important in recent years. This classic guide consists of some 1,200 photographs of furniture found in shops and auction rooms throughout the country with the author’s down-to-earth comments on important features which affect individual prices. The reader will come to understand the rules and prejudices which apply while the eye will become aware of gradations of quality. He will come instinctively to assess the workmanship and how all this affects the final price tag. This is, above all, a reference book for the practising collector and dealer, a work from which the memory may be refreshed and points checked. Each item is clearly referenced. This enables the annual price revision list to be compiled with a ready cross-reference. The list is available in January/February each year on a private subscription basis and details are contained within the book. “John Andrews has an encyclopaedic knowledge of antiques and history, qualifications for writing the first of the longest-running of the antique price guides” Sunday Telegraph * The best-selling guide to British antique furniture for over thirty years, now in its fifth edition * Explains in plain language what to look for when assessing value * Over 1,250 superb photographs show just how and why values can vary so greatly * Colour plates show the financial importance of patination * Contains revised prices in both £ Sterling and US $ Printed Pages: 432 with 137 coloured and 1150 b/w illustrations.
