Could this be our best magazine so far? You’ll have to get hold of a copy and decide for yourself!
The Autumn 2015 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit has a stunning feature on desk sets from Tiffany's. They're quite rare and it’s a bit of a coup to have them in Australia.
We tell you What's Hot and What's Not, and give you hints on how to store your collection. We take a close look at the Staffordshire spaniel, take you on a tour of the French flea markets and show you some beautiful prints by the master himself, John Gould.
We've done some undercover work to bring you Secret Sources, and there's a peek at some of the amazing gold from the Royal Collection. You can read all about forgotten potter Mabel Gibson, along with the history of hatting (and why the hatter really was mad!).
There's an absolutely gorgeous feature on the miniatures of John Smart - we show them enlarged and then actual size and you simply won't believe the detail. We look at the development of the matchbox label - more miniature works of art! – and the market for Swedish furniture.
Plus there's even more... Including a 4 month calendar of antique fairs and events, Bargain Hunter, Snippets and 4 pages of readers' letters in What's it Worth. It's a great magazine and it's packed with literally hundreds and hundreds of items to buy.
