Description

It is compiled by Judith Miller, world-renowned antiques expert and co-founder of the book, who selects the guide's 8000-plus featured antiques. The plates were often broken, but they were a catalyst, inspiring Judith to visit the library to learn more about her finds. To start with I said I was too busy to join the show, but as soon as I did one I wanted to do them all! We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. Clean, crisp, tight and bright with no reading wear, no marks to text, no tanning or other visible faults.

In Petworth, Sussex, Martin Miller ran a bed and breakfast while Judith worked as an occupational guidance officer for the Department of Employment.From an early age, history fascinated her, and by the time she was a teenager, the passion was unstoppable. Born Judith Henderson Cairns in Galashiels, Scotland, Miller first began collecting antiques while studying history at the University of Edinburgh. Over the years those who are keen to get rid of their clutter could literally be counting the costs having potentially thrown away a fortune disposing of memorabilia they perhaps thought wasn’t worth keeping. Miller worked as a consultant to and co-presenter of eight series of The Antiques Trail ( Meridian, HTV and Discovery), run on ITV.

Such finds have prompted people to get their items valued, or at least checked, before making the decision to let them go. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. These adverts enable local businesses to get in front of their target audience – the local community.Janet Gleeson worked at Sotheby’s and Bonhams as a picture specialist before joining Miller’s Guides as an editor. It also serves as a guide on how to appraise everything from books and ceramics to toys and vintage fashion. I was homesick for Scotland so I bought Monart glass, then I got obsessed by Ronald Stennett-Willson’s candlesticks, then Murano birds. The series made the couple a fortune – Martin Miller was nicknamed “the Richard Branson of the antiques world” – and spawned an empire of other standalone Miller guides, to porcelain, silver, Victoriana, and so on.

Comprehensive sections cover ceramics, furniture, glass, silver and metalwares, jewellery and objets de vertu, clocks and watches, books, Oriental antiques, textiles, toys, decorative arts and Modern Classics.She also wrote the antiques column for The Scotsman magazine and a monthly feature for the Financial Times weekend supplement "House and Home". She is an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow and co-hosts the popular BBC series The House Detectives, ITV's Antiques Trail, and Discovery's It's Your Bid. Judith Miller has gone from collecting as a university student in the 1960's, to one of the world's leading experts in the antiques field. In-depth features explaining how to value and become an expert along with biographies of designers and factories provide essential background information to help date and value objects. The thrill and excitement of discovering a valuable find can also spark an interest in developing a skill and a technique for collecting.

She has worked her way through British porcelain and pottery and Chinese porcelain, and now her passion is for 20th-century glass. She is an expert on the BBC ‘s Antiques Roadshow and has co-hosted the popular BBC series The House Detectives, ITV’s Antiques Trail, and Discovery’s It’s Your Bid.When Martin wanted to focus on property and hotels, Miller’s Publications was sold to Mitchell Beazley, but Judith remained as MD, overseeing the guides. Biographies of designers and factories give the background information you need to help date and value objects, while special 'Judith Picks' sections give fascinating background and valuation details for particularly interesting or unusual objects.
