CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Frequently seen on TV on the British version of Antiques Roadshow , Eric
Knowles is one of the most widely respected antiques experts in the U.K. His
simple, nontechnical approach to buying antiques assumes no previous knowledge
on the part of the reader, and provides all the information a beginner needs to
find the best and most affordable objects in all price ranges. This thorough
overview covers the major stylistic eras in each category with more than 1,400
illustrations—including several specially annotated photos that show exactly
what to look for. What makes the guide especially useful is that Eric has
valued each item, from oak and country furniture to English silver, European
art glass, and on to Chinese ceramics.
