“This new encyclopedia covers a wide variety of subjects of interest to the specialist collector, the novice, or, indeed, anyone who loves the arts.
Its five sections taken as a whole – ceramics, furniture, glass, silver and arts and decoration – give an overview of the world of antiques, dealing with the major styles and influences from the Renaissance to Art Nouveau.  In detail the book examines areas of particular beauty and fascination such as Ming porcelain Chippendale furniture, Venetian glass and American silver.”
