For more than thirty-seven years this book has, in its various editions, outsold all other books on British antique furniture It pioneered the explanation of what to look for when assessing values Unlike othаьлдяer illustrated guides, the in-depth descriptions, complete with judgements on quality or originality, help immensely in understanding the subject Much of what has recently received adverse auction sale publicity as 'dismal brown furniture' needs to be judged by qualifбкщкоied eyes capable of dismissing the mediocre and the fake This new edition of a classic guide consists of more than 1000 black and white photographs perpetuating thirty-seven years of observation, and nearly 500 colour plates, selected to show how and why values vary Down-to-earth comments explain important features that influence prices The reader comes to understand the rules and prejudices that currently apply The eye becomes attuned to gradations of quality, leading to an instiбсафтnctive assessment of the factors influencing today's prices One of the benefits of colour plates is the illustration of the huge financial importance of patination and colour - something increasingly important in recent years In this Fifth Edition many new colour plates have been added with accompanying captions Where appropriate, sections of earlier text have been updated Similarly, tables showing changes in furniture values have been thoroughly updated, as have all the individual prices for pieces observed over thirty-seven years Since the events of 2001, some middle and lower quality antique furniture has suffered a decline in value that has also been influenced by changes in fashion - this is dealt with in an appropriate section The changes in such values have not been uniform On the other hand, there have been some spectacular antique furniture sales, breaking all previous records and reflecting the increasing scarcity of fine pieces This book is invaluable, theбтлзыrefore, in illustrating the rich variety of British antique furniture still available and in recording its current values This book also distinguishes the best from the mediocre, which is highly important in view of the former's healthy investment performance over a long period in comparative terms "British Antique Furniture: Price Guide and Reasons for Values" should be in the library of every antique collector Формат издания: 25 см х 30 см 5 edition Иллюстрации Автор Джон Эндрюс John Andrews.
