We had so much to fit into the Spring 2016 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit that we had to add ANOTHER 8 pages - making it a truly bumper issue!
The cover story is all about Demetre Chiparus and his stunning dancing queens - the figures that made him famous. Frenchman Emile Galle was just as renowned for his gorgeous glass, but did you know he was also acclaimed for his furniture design? Ivor Hughes reports on a side of Galle not often seen.
We take you travelling with vintage posters from Australia's golden age of travel, plus we look at another lesser-known output from the Sevres factory - their refined white biscuit ware. Australiana specialist collector Kevin Power delves into the exceptional life and work of Nell McCredie, and if gardening is your thing, you'll love the feature on Australian native flora in antique prints.
Ever wondered how ladies of the night protected themselves in Victorian times? We tell you the story behind the prostitute's dagger, plus we look at what's hot and what's not, profile the motion lamp (you'll be amazed at how much they sell for!) and AAADA President Dawn Davis gives hints on decorating old with new.
Debra Palmen reveals the secrets of shopping for antiques in London, we look into the story of the Toby jug and Toby Fillpot and we feature Tomte Laerdeal and their rubber toy vehicles from Norway.
Plus there's even more... Including the expanded Services and Trades section, a four-month Calendar of antique fairs and events, Snippets, Movers and Shakers and four pages of readers' letters in What's it Worth. It's a great magazine and it's packed with literally hundred and hundreds of items to buy.
