This fully illustrated paperback written by Christine Pym provides in-depth professional tips and suggestions that come from her first-hand experience in creating, building, and establishing from scratch the forty-year-old acclaimed high-end retail business David J Pym Antiques.
Critiqued as "unique in its genre, compelling, and captivating," this how-to guide also provides general background information on antique terms and time periods, together with descriptions of popular products and collectors' items. These include such treasures as rare and vintage guitars, timepieces, Renaissance and Baroque-style cupids and putti, as well as Art Nouveau and Art Deco art glass, lady figure bronzes and table lamps, mirrors and chandeliers for interior design, and fine jewellery.
Written for antiquities enthusiasts and passionate collectors everywhere, the book is considered "a rare first-hand glimpse into the antiques world and its internal workings."
The book begins by asking the question: "What is the antiques industry about?" No one, including universities, has been able to get to the bottom of it. By all accounts, it remains a popular, yet mystifying, sometimes secretive, unregulated industry. Also, despite being potentially rewarding and exciting, it cannot be described as an easy profession. Therefore, the book seeks to explore and simplify the business.
