About this deal

There are connections to Yorkshire too including Burmantofts Faience Pottery from Leeds; Studio potter Joanna Constantindis, from York; Studio glass artist, Peter Layton, from Yorkshire as well as pieces from York in silver and sewing; some sporting and military pieces from the county and a teddy elephant which previously belonged to relations of the Ingilby baronets of Ripley Castle, North Yorkshire. Janet Gleeson worked at Sotheby’s and Bonhams as a picture specialist before joining Miller’s Guides as an editor.

FINE* Jacket condition: Matching colour photo-illustrated dust wrapper showing a piano, an oriental vase and a pair of statuettes. These adverts enable local businesses to get in front of their target audience – the local community. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Special features explain why one piece is worth more than another, show how to value an item and teach you to be your own valuer. Their new publishing company was run from the outbuildings, while the family lived in a smaller house at Sissinghurst and a Gothic mansion in Kensington.Born Judith Henderson Cairns in Galashiels, Scotland, Miller first began collecting antiques while studying history at the University of Edinburgh. Such finds have prompted people to get their items valued, or at least checked, before making the decision to let them go. After staying on at Edinburgh to do a master’s in History, Judith was hired in 1974 as an assistant – at twice the going rate – by Martin Miller, who was living in a period of semi-retirement in a Victorian Gothic castle outside Galashiels. Biographies of designers and factories give the background information you need to help date and value objects, while special ‘Judith Picks’ sections give fascinating background and valuation details for particularly interesting or unusual objects. Miller worked as a consultant to and co-presenter of eight series of The Antiques Trail ( Meridian, HTV and Discovery), run on ITV.

Major collecting areas are thoroughly covered, with special attention given to French provincial furniture, Irish antiques, Poole pottery, majolica, carousel animals, and Oriental works of art and ceramics. The series made the couple a fortune – Martin Miller was nicknamed “the Richard Branson of the antiques world” – and spawned an empire of other standalone Miller guides, to porcelain, silver, Victoriana, and so on.Comprehensive sections cover Ceramics, Asian Antiques, Furniture, Glass, Silver and Metalwares, Jewellery and objets de vertu, Clocks and Watches, Books, Textiles, Toys, Decorative Arts and Modern Classics.
