Sit back and enjoy the cool autumn afternoons with a copy of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit by your side. You can start out by reading about the magic of Wedgwood Fairyland, illustrated with some of the most stunning pieces you’re likely to see.
And if that’s a bit airy fairy for you, turn to the pages on miniature furniture – we guarantee you’ll be amazed at some of the items we’ve managed to include in this feature.
We’ve also got a story on glorious D’Argental glass, we visit the Somme as more anniversaries clock up and we take a look at the fine art of conchology.
We tell you what’s hot and what’s not, keep you entertained with mermaid legends, give away the secrets to buying in Bruges and take a look at the evolution of one of the world’s favourite pastimes – drinking tea.
In an editorial coup, author Kevin Power presents the first published look at the Disabled Soldiers Pottery – and it’s about a lot more than pottery. There’s also a piece on the fashion genius of Balenciaga, and we explore the romantic hidden meanings behind Dearest and Regard jewellery.
