Antiques are traded today in every conceivable market place - on the Internet, at car boot sales, and in sales and auction houses at every level. Whatever they are purchasing, what collectors need are portable reference tools that answer the questions they need to know so they can make an informed decision about whether to buy or not. Post-war design is the fastest growing area of antiques. Glass of the 1950s and '60s is still affordable and accessible and an excellent entry point to this area. It is increasingly popular with younger collectors who are looking for clean, sharp design with a difference that is also an investment. Opportunities through non-trade outlets: through collectors' clubs and specialist Internet sites. If you are new to collecting, you don't want to spend money buying expensive reference books, yet the need for accurate, authoritative information is just as important as it is to the collectors at the top end of the market.

These introductory guides on popular collecting subjects offer full-colour, specially photographed items combined with invaluable collecting information, all presented in an accessible and easy-to-use format and representing terrific value for money. Miller's Glass of the '50s & '60s: A Collector's Guide covers an exciting period in glass design with new innovations in techniques and design in both art and factory glass. Colour, shape and texture were to become the by-words of the period captured in Britain by factories such as Whitefriars and Wedgwood and in the USA by Steuben and Blenko. In addition, bright, colourfully decorated items were produced in their thousands and are very collectable today. Pieces are also included by well-known designers and factories in Italy and Scandinavia such as Orrefors. Organized by type, this book looks at the different factories and designers and highlights what to look for and how to identify pieces that, more often than not, are unmarked.
