This is the most informative and practical guide to the deceptions, fakes, and not-quite-genuine pieces to be found in the antiques trade. Written by some of the world's leading authorities, it has been completely updated and re-designed, and new photographs have been added so it is now in color throughout. Furniture, metalware, pottery and porcelain, glass, clocks, and toys are covered, as well as more specialized areas such as American furniture and silver, scrimshaws, quilts and decoys. The approach is always thoroughly practical, using color illustrations to show buyers what to look for and what to beware of, and how the fake materials and techniques differ from those in the genuine article.
