This book tells you the important points to look for in the major groups of antiques - ceramics, silver, glass, furniture, carpets and textiles. It also guides you through the maze of difficulties inherent in the buying, selling and collecting of these precious objects. The pitfalls awaiting the beginner in this increasingly lucrative pastime are many, but the author George Savage knows them all. His years of experience in handling antiques put him in an excellent position to explain the differences between fakes, forgeries, and reproductions; the valuation and insurance of works of art; the correct way to draw up descriptions and invoices; and the hundred and one other things which few books on the subject mention.
