No other book covers the subject with unmatched breadth, depth, and authority: it explains materials, marks, and techniques; provides clues to identification and dating; and offers hints on what to consider when examining antiques. That's why contemporary collectors, dealers, and auctioneers continue to need this outstanding and accessible resource on everything from ancient Chinese ceramics to Art Deco sculpture, 18th century chairs to 20th century Barbie dolls, and Native American rugs to toy robots. It showcases examples from across the world, giving an international perspective on antiques and the history of design. And new sections on Mid-Century Modern and Postmodern work make this the must-have, expert-authenticated guide to the subject.
