Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Drawings and full-color photographs adorn every page of Judith Miller's exhaustive dictionary of items, terminology, and artists for the antiques and collectibles enthusiast. With more than 30 years in the antiques business to her credit, Miller's expertise is evident as she deftly offers up concise and accessible information about everything from googly eyes to damascening. Special sections expand on trends (the crafts revival, for example), artists (such as Duncan Phyfe), general areas of collecting (maps or Japanese pottery and porcelain), or styles (Louis XIV among them). Collectors of all stripes will find this an ideal reference, as well as an inviting object for perusal.
