Miller's Costume Jewellery: A Collector's Guide Summary
Miller's Costume Jewellery: A Collector's Guide takes a look at the leading styles of costume jewellery of the late 19th and 20th centuries, from the Victorian period through to Art Nouveau, Art Deco and designers such as Trifari, Miriam Heskell and Dior, right up to 1980s Chanel, and even collectables of the future. With the sweeping social changes of the 19th and 20th centuries, the pleasure of wearing jewellery became increasingly available to women of all incomes and classes. Miller's Costume Jewellery: A Collector's Guide provides an essential introduction to this fascinating subject. The items are divided either by period, style or designer, focusing on identifying characteristics and covering a broad range of pieces, with the emphasis on what is most collectable and why. Every item in the guide has a price range and is illustrated in colour, with details of design, materials and condition. Fact Files provide tips for collectors, information on fakes and forgeries and advice on building up and preserving a collection of costume jewellery.
