Reviews

"This is an inspired concept. It is the brainchild of an incurably inquisitive historian whose totally infectious enthusiasm has gained him the cooperation of some heavyweight supporters and contributors to enable the reader to identify the style of a master craftsman, to recognise the difference between good and the finest quality and to have enough general knowledge of the subject to get added pleasure when looking at an antique, whether it be in a friend's home, a stately mansion or a museum collection" John Bly, The Antiques Roadshow
