This book is the only one of its kind to deal extensively with the buying and selling of antique British clocks, revealing commercial knowledge acquired by the author over more than thirty-five years. Loomes concentrates on important background information for the novice, including distinguishing between the genuine and the fake, and between the good and the mediocre, as well as how to recognize those factors which represent quality. The guide examines aspects that influence price, where to buy (auctions or dealers), researching makers and styles, and 'investment' ideas, as well as restoration principles. Despite the wealth of facts and experience recounted in this book, its style is accessible, and Loomes anticipates and answers the novice's questions at a comprehensible level. Illustrated with eighty-three photographs and line drawings, "Antique British Clocks" will help the buyer choose successfully from the vast variety of clocks available.
