Miller's Buying Affordable Antiques Price Guide 2005 features over 1,500 antiques, illustrated in full colour with extended captions to explain the factors determining its price. Every piece can be sourced to its original dealer or auction house, and all have been for sale in the antiques trade during the past year. The "Miller's Compares" feature explains why two seemingly similar pieces 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, and how to buy exquisite pieces fashioned by leading designers but at affordable prices. There is plenty of market advice, plus information on designers and makers. A team of consultants have authenticated every piece and explain the reasons behind the values, whether it is condition, fashion, restoration, or simply a bargain.
