Undressing Antiques: The Art Market
Mr Mark Hill BA (Hons)
Wednesday 22 February 2017

Mark Hill - co-author of Miller's Collectables Price Guide and expert on Antiques Road Show:

Undressing Antiques
Antiques. I don’t understand them and they’re beyond my budget. Nobody even collects anymore. They’re not for me.” A persuasive introduction to buying antiques and integrating and using them in today’s homes. The state of the antiques market and the different meanings of the word value are considered, and we take a look at what current and future generations of collectors are buying, why they are buying it and how they are displaying it.
