Nearly everybody has a small art object in the attic, or a piece of unusual porcelain in a cabinet, or perhaps a very old table or chair -- but has no clear idea of the item's value. It might have no value at all -- or it might be worth thousands! How do you begin to find out? This handsomely illustrated large-format volume is a good place to start the investigation. It offers advice on how to identify the key characteristics, shapes, and forms by style from every historical period. Author and antiques expert Paul Davidson discusses objects of every kind: architecture, room interiors, furniture, cabinets, pottery, glassware, metalware, porcelain figurines and vases, clocks, cutlery, dolls, and much more. He educates his readers in-- The art of dating antiques ...-- The ability to identify styles by name, time, and place of manufacture ...-- An understanding of how styles are born, evolve, and are adapted to many different media, from architecture to silverware, ceramics, and textiles ...-- What to look out for when buying a piece, establishing whether or not it has been repaired, and knowing whether or not repairs matt
