Book description
This warmly informative introduction to the colorful, behind-the-scenes world of antiquing is largely based on the popular BBC-TV program "Going for a Song" in which Arthur Negus stars. It discusses with easy authority the development of various kinds of English furniture and decorative objects, the characteristic styles of Adam, Sheraton, Hepplewhite, and other fine craftsmen, and discloses the experts' secrets for determining a piece's authencity, period, and value.
