SUMMARY

Don't be fooled by the appearance of a piece of furniture--a fragile example of a peasant's handmade table may be worth far more than an elegant china cabinet that's only a modern copy of an original royal commission. Learn to tell the difference as you study the history of furniture collecting from the 18th-century through the present (1950s styles now can be considered antiques). Experts help you understand the signatures and styles of particular makers, firms, and even owners from many countries around the world. Special sections cover stools and chairs, sofas and settees, tables and desks, bookcases and cabinets, and bed and bath furnishings. Along with tips on where and how to find truly valuable pieces come illustrated indicators for detecting repairs, restorations, and even reproduction work that lowers value. You need never take prices at face value, armed with secrets for avoiding overpriced pieces and spotting bargains.MacKay, James is the author of 'Antiques at a Glance Furniture' with ISBN 9781856486460 and ISBN 185648646X.
