In 2003 Antiques Information Services published Pottery & Porcelain Prices at Auction. This remarkable and original work covered entirely new ground. For the first time ever a price guide broke away from the standard A-Z historically based format used by other publishers. The objective was clear and unequivocal. A price guide need not and perhaps should not be controlled or constrained, let alone clouded by potentially intrusive information relating to the background history and production of the objects discussed. Rather it should take as its marker, the market itself and leave these other matters to those excellent monographs which continue to be written in pursuance of the particular knowledge much sought after by collectors and historians. Furniture Prices at Auction follows the same format and is therefore designed to plug the chasm that exists in specialist market surveys within the antiques and collecting industry. It is straightforwardly pragmatic, that is it aims to bear in practical terms on the interest of collectors, dealers, auctioneers, insurers and valuers who need undiluted market information. In Furniture Prices at Auction the most important objective therefore is to give the reader a sense or a feel for the market. This is what prices are about! Clearly it is necessary to provide many images. Over 3,000 examples of world furniture sold at UK auctions over the last few years from 2000 and 2004 are included and are presented in eleven price bands from over GBP10,000 to under GBP250. To ensure that all of these examples respect the market they must include the actual catalogue description of the lot, where it was sold, when it was sold and what it was sold for. To support the sense of the market the lots are ordered precisely by value from the very highest to the very lowest of prices. A comprehensive index enables the reader to studyparticular categories. By providing all of these elements a sound basis has been provided from which the reader will be able to grasp the essentials of furniture strictly in market terms.
