Overview

From the editor and founder of the authoritative Lyle Official Antiques Review comes this insider's guide to a new crop of antiques and collectibles that can bring you a fortune - if you know what to look for.

Gone are the days when "antiques" meant simply Georgian furniture, Sevres china, Byzantine bronzes, and classical items that were readily identified as potentially valuable. Today, there is a thriving and profitable collector's market in everything from bus tickets to milk bottles to menus - items just waiting to be discovered in attics, garages, junk shops, and flea markets.

This book will help you sift with a knowing eye through a surprising array of unexpectedly valuable antiques, many of which might be thrown away for lack of basic information. Each entry is accompanied by a black-and-white photograph showing the object's distinguishing features, and includes its current market value. In addition, an extensive index enables you to locate every entry, quickly and easily.
