A practical price guide to buying genuine antiques without breaking the bank, with item comparisons and the best places to buy. "Miller's Buying Affordable Antiques Price Guide 2006" features over 1,500 antiques, illustrated in full colour, each fully captioned and priced, explaining what characteristics determine the price - including whether it is condition, fashion, restoration, or simply a bargain. Every caption has a source code revealing the dealer or auction house at which the item was offered, and all pieces have been for sale in the antiques trade during the past year. The "Miller's Compares" feature shows two seemingly similar items and explains why they can achieve different prices. "The Look without the Price" identifies how you can achieve an authentic look by buying antiques in the style of more famous makers or of earlier eras, and how to buy exquisite pieces fashioned by leading designers but at affordable prices. There are also additional information boxes containing plenty of market advice, and details on designers and makers. A team of consultants have authenticated and contributed to every piece.
