A classic guide to the valuation of antique furniture that explains what to look for when assessing the value of individual pieces. This third edition includes both Sterling and US dollar prices and features colour photographs, which have been added in order to illustrate the financial importance of patination and colour. The author sets out to provide an understanding of the rules and prejudices which apply, while training the reader's eye to become aware of gradations of quality. This is a reference for the practising collector and dealer from which the memory may be refreshed and points checked. Each item is clearly referenced, enabling 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.
