Description

This book is a guide for the beginner, to help him through the bewildering maze of antique objects with which he is likely to come in contact. Also, it has much information to aid the more advanced collector. It sets out to help in identifying the age of a piece; to give clues that may reveal the actual maker, or at least
his nationality; to indicate comparative rarity; and to suggest what is worth having and what to leave for others.
