Miller's: Bottles & Pot Lids: A Collector's Guide (Miller's Collector's Guides). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Antiques are traded today in every conceivable market place-on the Internet, at car boot sales, and in sales and auction houses at every level. Whatever they are purchasing, what collectors need are portable reference tools that answer the questions they need to know so they can make an informed decision about whether to buy or not. Collecting bottles, and other 19th and early 20th century consumables, really took off in the 1960s. There is now a thriving global network of specialist auctions (both online and traditional), collectors' clubs, webrings and magazines. This subject is particularly strong on the Internet. Opportunities through non-trade outlets: through collectors' clubs and specialist Internet sites. If you are new to collecting, you don't want to spend money buying expensive reference books, yet the need for accurate, authoritative information is just as important as it is to the collectors at the top end of the market. These introductory guides on popular collecting subjects offer full-colour, specially photographed items combined with invaluable collecting information, all presented in an accessible and easy-to-use format and representing terrific value for money.Miller's Bottles & Pot Lids: A Collector's Guide is a full-colour introductory overview of the subject. It offers the collector historical and collecting information based around particular items, thereby putting them in context and showing how to identify and date particular types, shapes, and uses. This, combined with price ranges, provides boundaries for the novice to work within when faced with objects to purchase on the Internet, in charity shops, or at specialist dealers or auctions. The book shows the wide range available to the collector including early stoneware, black glass, Doulton, ink, and poison bottles, as well as pot lids and breweriana. Fact Files provide tips for collectors, and advice on digging, building up, and preserving a collection of bottles and associated items is included.
About the Author: Alan Blakeman is Britain's leading dealer of antique bottles and lids. He is also director of BBR Publications, the world's leading publisher, auctioneer, and show organizer in the bottle-collecting world.
