Allum, Marc2013
Books
From the mythical artefacts of the ancient world to prized 80s pop memorabilia - and the dedicated collectors who revere these objects - 'The Antiques Magpie' brings together a treasure trove of stories, anecdotes and facts from the wonderful world of antiques. It divulges closely-guarded insider tips on how to discover fakes and forgeries; explains how boom and bust can have a devastating impact on the antiques market, and why a Chinese five-clawed dragon, rather than four, can make a porcelain vase worth millions.
