Product description

Illustrated with colour photographs, this guide highlights many fascinating objects, offers ways to authenticate their origin, and gives details on style and ideas of value. It is divided into four main sections: small and decorative furniture; dolls, toys and games; pottery and porcelain; and clocks and watches. Each section opens with an introduction on the collectable in question, followed by chapters based on examining specific pieces within that subject. These chapters are then followed by a "Caring For Your Valuables" section and a "Collector's Checklist". A glossary provides explanations for antique terminology.
