Decorating your home with genuine antiques can seem a daunting prospect if you are on a budget. However in today's market there are many perfectly good genuine antiques at much lower prices than you might expect - you can even buy antique furniture at lower prices than comparable modern pieces.

It highlights those pieces that collectors wanting affordable antiques should be looking for. It features over 1500 antiques, illustrated in full colour with extended captions to explain the factors determining its price, and therefore this book should be ideal for the novice collector wanting to learn more about why a piece is valued at a certain price. The "Look without the Price" feature illustrates how to get the antique look without the price by highlighting later pieces in the style of much more expensive period pieces, while the "Miller's Compares" feature explains why two seemingly similar pieces can achieve different prices. There is plenty of market advice plus information on designers and makers. A team of consultants, including John Sandon and Leslie Gillham, has authenticated every piece and explain the reasons behind the values, whether it is condition, fashion, restoration or simply a bargain.
