Description

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. 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. It also serves as a guide on how to appraise everything from books and ceramics to toys and vintage fashion. 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. Miller worked as a consultant to and co-presenter of eight series of The Antiques Trail ( Meridian, HTV and Discovery), run on ITV.

She also turned her hand to books on interior design after a chance conversation with a designer friend, Jacqui Small. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). 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. After my delightful event at The Blanchard Collective, I felt compelled to recommend it all to you here. Discover the joy of reading with us, your trusted source for affordable books that do not compromise on quality.We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. She described herself as an auction addict: “I get sweaty palms, my heart starts beating faster, and I start glaring at anyone bidding against me.

Judith went to the local comprehensive, Galashiels Academy, then read English at Edinburgh University, where she started to collect old plates and saucers with exotic Chinoiserie themes for a few pence apiece to cheer up her student room. The ability to comment on our stories is a privilege, not a right, however, and that privilege may be withdrawn if it is abused or misused. It has earned the reputation of being the book no dealer, collector or auctioneer should be without.Over the years those who are keen to get rid of their clutter could literally be counting the costs having potentially thrown away a fortune disposing of memorabilia they perhaps thought wasn’t worth keeping. After her marriage to Martin Miller ended in divorce in 1992, Miller began a relationship with John Wainwright, and they had one son. 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. Among her other obsessions she numbered dogs, Scottish rugby and – above all – Bruce Springsteen: she travelled the world to see The Boss live.

She is an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow, and has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show on CNN. 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. Once a specialist for Bonhams and Sothebys, he is an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow, and co-presents BBC2's Collectaholics.Yet Judith Miller’s long and illustrious career in the world of antiques publishing had little to do with her family background.
