Miller’s Antiques Encyclopedia is a very nicely done reference work. Judith Miller's Decorative Arts book is an outstanding work with descriptions, large color pictures, and many categories grouped by their time periods. It should be given serious consideration by public librarians and by academic librarians whose collections support programs in fine art, history, and studio projects. -Art A. Lichtenstein. I wanted more photo examples of porcelain, glass, marquetry, etc. so I purchased this book. I am very satisfied that the Antiques Encyclopedia is a good supplement to Decorative Arts. I am not an antique collector but the values shown are an interesting sidelight.

Judith Miller's Decorative Arts book is an outstanding work with descriptions, large color pictures, and many categories grouped by their time periods. I wanted more photo examples of porcelain, glass, marquetry, etc. so I purchased this book. I am very satisfied that the Antiques Encyclopedia is a good supplement to Decorative Arts.

I am an auctioneer and I use this book often to check the odd piece out.
This is a good general reference book dealing with the most important categories of what are generally considered 'antiques' (and almost only those categories, unfortunately). There are separate sections for Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, which comes in handy.
All you need to know about antiques is not here, that's a given, though it does go beyond basics, and it has all the must-know bits.

I bought this book as a gift for my mother, who is an antiques dealer. I was looking for a comprehensive reference book that was not a price guide. This seemed to fit that description. My mother was pleased with it, and said it was attractive enough to display as a "coffee table book".
