Focusing on the three main areas of Arts & Crafts-art pottery, wrought metal, and period lighting-this field-guide-style book is strikingly illustrated with vibrant photos that show the key concepts every antique collector, dealer, or hobbyist needs to know.

Packed with savvy advice, this insider's guide offers the tools to discern worthwhile, precious, beautiful antique pieces from a mass of imperfect or damaged ones. Rago's newest book helps the novice and the experienced collector discern what is worth buying and what will hold or increase in value, plus how to get the most enjoyment out of every piece.

Filled with Rago's expert opinions about American Arts & Crafts objects and furniture, a list of the ten books that should be in any serious library on the subject, and helpful tips on collecting, the Arts & Crafts Collector's Guide is a must-have for any connoisseur of the period.
