This is a comprehensive guide to antiques and collectables from around the world. Each of the hundreds of entries is written by an expert in the field and illustrated by specially commisioned photographs. It supplies up-to-date information on all kinds of collectables from furniture to silver and from glass to clocks and watches. The history of the objects is explored and the development of styles is traced through successive eras. Collectors will find particularly useful the makers' marks and construction details that are featured on every page.
