9781851491230: David Battie's Guide to Understanding 19th & 20th Century British Porcelain: Including Fakes, Techniques and Prices (Antique Collector's Club)

This is a new, revised edition of the 1975 Guide with updated prices. It should be essential reading for auctioneers, dealers, collectors and anyone interested in porcelain. The Price Guide Series of books on antiques has established itself over many years as providing useful information to collectors on prices, factors influencing prices and points to watch out for when buying. The first edition of "The Price Guide to 19th and 20th Century British Porcelain" was published in 1975. It provided a snapshot of its time - a picture that can now be seen to be out-of-focus. While this new edition omits several pieces which now seem too obscure or repetitive, there are numerous additional photographs in both black and white and colour. Of those that remain, their captions have been largely rewritten. In the last 15 years there has been a wealth of new research and both this and the recent emphasis on British ceramics for interior decoration has been reflected in the balance of this new edition. The format of dividing objects into collecting areas rather than factories has been retained with sections on bowls, jugs, plates, vases etc. An index is provided, however, for those interested in the output of a particular factory. Factors which influence prices such as condition and damage are discussed and a regularly published price revision list to accompany this book will ensure that the reader remains aware of changes in the market. Finally, the vexed question of fakes is also considered and a number of illustrated examples are included.

Book Description Antique Collectors Club, 1994. Rilegato. Book Condition: nuovo. Brand new. Including Fakes, Techniques and Prices. David Battie, the well-known Antiques Roadshow contributor, h~ completely rewritten and updated his very successful Price Guide to 19th and 20th Century British Porcelain. This new edition, covering one of today's most popular collectable areas, makes available to the collector the latest information resulting from research into the major factory archives over the last fifteen years. The popularity of Victorian porcelain with interior designers has had its effect on values and the author discusses how this factor, as well as condition and damage, can influence prices. A regularly published price revision list to accompany this book will ensure that the reader remains aware of changes in the market. The highly successful format of dividing objects into collecting areas rather than factories has been retained, with sections on bowls, figures, vases, etc. An index is provided for those interested in the output of a particular factory. Finally, the vexed question of fakes and forgeries is also considered and a number of illustrated examples are included. With 472 black and white and 64 colour illustrations, this informative book will be essential reading for auctioneers, dealers and all collectors interested in porcelain, whether buying from salerooms, antique shops or car boot sales., Ill. bn: 472, Ill. colori: 64, Peso: 1555 gr.
