An appraiser and former antiques dealer, Carol Prisant wrote the popular ?Good, Better, Best? column for House Beautiful for several years. Bringing this concept to an even broader audience, she now shares her insider tips for developing an eagle eye in a wide range of collectibles markets.

Entertaining and accessible, Good, Better, Best coaches antiques novices and devotees in choosing the highest quality items, featuring three photographs depicting a good, better, and best example of hundreds of antiques to distinguish the treasure from the less desirable version. Packed with more than two hundred full-color photographs and illustrations, this ingenious handbook is also broad in scope, covering everything from brass doorstops and porcelain plates to silver napkin rings and furniture from America and Europe.

Sharing tips for deciphering a manufacturer?s initials, spotting a fake, and much more, Good, Better, Best makes it easy to learn what to look for and what to avoid. With Prisant?s wise words in hand, every flea market apprentice can now buy like a pro.
