About the Author:

Joe L. Rosson and Helaine Fendelman are the host of the popular television show seen on PBS stations nationwide Treasures in the Attic. Helaine writes the "What is it? What is it worth?" column for Country Living magazine and Joe is the antiques columnist for the Knoxville News-Sentinel. They both write Scripts Howard weekly newspaper column "Treasures in the attic".

From Booklist:

Run--do not walk--to borrow, beg, or buy a copy of PBS-TV hosts Rosson and Fendelman's latest book (the first one was named for their show, Treasures in Your Attic). This treasure trove is the first realistic and practical guide to self-appraising antiques--or seemingly old objects. The purview the authors establish for themselves is definitely decorative accessories; furniture, glass, pottery and porcelain, silver, and that wonderful category, miscellaneous, are the areas scrutinized. Part 1 introduces readers to the mechanics--knowledge needed, the process, factors that determine value, pricing (yes, there's more than one), and research. Part 2 then supplies the details on 45 different items, ranging from four Victorian side chairs to a rare Georg Jensen silver bowl. Each features facts first, like form, materials, and method of construction, then delves into more description, such as, How do I know it's old? Or rare? The last section is filled with resources, a librarian's dream. Appended are appraisal valuations and a glossary. Barbara Jacobs
