Thames and Hudson
As a dealer and professional tour guide, Kimberly Jayne Gray is an ideal escort around London - one of the world's richest sources of antiques. Finding dealers and other outlets with consistently interesting and high-quality items in this thriving city can be a challenge. This refreshingly accessible, wonderfully functional and superbly illustrated guide pinpoints the very essence of antiques-hunting: knowing where to go for those great buys. The London Antiques Guide offers an insider's perspective on London's best dealers and shops, with over 350 of London's essential antiques sources, and many of its best-kept secrets. The book is divided into seven sections, designed to help the reader survey London's antiques quarters by area and style. They contain information on all types of outlet - from shops and auction houses to fairs and markets. An extensive list of websites is woven into the text, and a full glossary of general trade terms and phrases appears at the end of the book, along with a quick price guide, two timelines and various tips and tricks of the trade.
