American quilts are among the hottest collectibles, and this colorful new volume in the groundbreaking Miller’s Treasure or Not? series is an indispensable guide to this popular subject. Stella Rubin, a well-known dealer with more than 25 years of experience in quilts, identifies what makes one quilt worth more than another, and explores a wide range of designs from different eras: Colonial through the Industrial Revolution, Victorian to Colonial Revival and the Depression eras. On each spread, full-color photos of two quilts, related in style, technique, or intended use, appear on facing pages, surrounded by captions and notes highlighting each quilt’s “value features”—those factors, such as material, design, condition, and authenticity, that account for the item’s relative market value.

From the Back Cover:

This new title in the groundbreaking Miller's Treasure or Not? series is unlike any other currently available guide to collecting American quilts. Much more than a pricing manual or an illustrated showcase of beautiful pieces, this indispensable volume is a master class in evaluating the amazing work of dedicated American quilters from Colonial times to the present.

A nationally known dealer and impassioned collector of antique quilts, Stella Rubin shows you how to look at quilts with a professional eye and identify those factors that add or subtract from value. Features that will guide both the novice and experienced collector include:

  • A unique compare-and-contrast format
  • Professional valuation secrets from a leading collector and dealer of antique American quilts
  • Full-color photographs of more than 120 quilts
  • Price ranges for every item
  • Detailed instruction on how to assess style, condition, authenticity, and value
  • Expert advice on how to store, maintain, and display quilts
