Now in it’s 27th year, the all new edition of the Miller’s Collectables Handbook & Price Guide is hot off the presses, having been published this week. I say all new, because every edition is entirely new – over 4,000 completely different collectables hand-selected by Judith and I are featured in glorious technicolour in this 432-page book.
This means that every edition builds to create a unique library of collectables from across the world. Each and every item is accompanied by a price guide, a full description and often extra information, expert opinion, and tricks of the trade to help you become a canny buyer and seller. Features such as ‘Judith Picks‘, ‘Mark Picks‘, ‘A Closer Look At…‘ and ‘Miller’s Compares‘ enable you to learn more about why one object can fetch ten times the price of a (seemingly) similar one. Forthermore, hundreds of footnotes draw more of the veil back, giving easy to understand and practical tips on buying, selling – and spotting a bargain. All the collectables featured are taken from verified dealers, auctioneers and well-known collectors from across the world, so you can be assured the information and prices are bang-on.
Every edition has a number of special sections, and this issue contains large sections on Austrian cold-painted bronzes, Hornsea Pottery, Studio Pottery, affordable jewellery, and plastic dolls from the 1950s to the 1970s.
Smaller areas, some of which haven’t been covered before, include Zookies, Sheena Macleod dolls, D’Argental glass, Sam Herman glass, and Charles Horner jewellery.
Of course, familiar favourites are also included, such as Clarice Cliff, Moorcroft, Roseville, Rookwood, paperweights, vintage posters, small silver items, sporting memorabilia, teddy bears, diecast toys (Dinky and Corgi), Star Wars toys, tribal art, and watches. There’s so much to see – and learn about! Whether you’re a dedicated collector, are clearing out a relative’s house, or are a keen car boot or antiques fair goer, Miller’s Collectable Handbook & Price Guide 2016-2017 is the book you need.
