 Hardcover and Dustjacket 256pp., colour and b/white illustrations throughout. Book clean, square. Spine firm, gilt title there-on. Leaves clean. Illustrated, loose-plastic protected dustjacket minimally edge-creased only. From the jacket flap: "The book is divided into periods of significant development in the arts and in society in general, and within each of these periods the main antiques categories are explored (furniture, silver, glass, metalware, porcelain, etc.). Key shapes, styles, motifs and influences are brought to light, with reference, where relevant, to style variations unique to other countries. By examining the fashionable and overriding shapes of each period, the means of manufacture, and the materials available to craftsmen at the time, a picture begins to develop of how antiques are a part of history, and part of an ancient scene that has formed our current etiquette. The final section takes a selection of items from across the different periods and analyses them to illustrate a practical application of the thought processes explored in the book." Includes Glossary, Bibliography and Index. Book weight approx. 1.3 KG. * Customers outside Australia - This item will incur extra postage charges as it weighs over 1KG.
