I bought this book used, because I love looking at pictures of old antiques/vintage items. Nothing really new in the way of pictures. I enjoyed 300 Years of Kitchen Collectibles much better...that book had more pictures etc....I plan to resell this book because it just does not keep my interest.
I bought this...TEN years ago. is really behind, asking me to review it now.Even so, this is a useful book, if you have any collections from this era. I don't and never really did. I came across a few items and that prompted me to buy this book, but once I sold those items, this book languished on my shelf all these years. I think I actually donated this book to my library; I don't see it here on the shelf anymore.It is a valuable book, if you are into this era. Buy the newer version.
Detailed and specific. Exactly how a antique guide should be. Well worth the price and very helpful in determining the value. Even if the book is outdated for pricing, it is helpful to understand the antiques contained within.
For the avid estate auction, yard sale, and/or junque store addict, there is one big plus about this book: something is better than nothing at all. The prices in my copy are updated to 1997 which means that they have since been obliterated by bug-eyed e-Bay purchasers. Still, one can garner a relative value of pricing from the information one finds in this price manual of sorts.The document size is 8 1/2" x 11" x 3/4", 215 pages. Of course it would be impossible to list the thousands of various period "kitchen antiques" which are out there in so few pages. Author Kathryn McNerney has tried to provide the reader with a broad cross-section of mostly kitchen devices which one might encounter while out on buying expeditions. The numerous black-and-white photos which highly punctuate the informational text are of the greatest importance for prospective purchasers of these items.My best guess at this point is that you could nowadays easily double the prices which McNerney has listed in the 1997 revised edition, and even those will likely represent an outdated evaluation before too many years have passed. The demand for these items (mostly of decorative interest) seems to be interminable.In summary, this is a great book to check out at the local public library. I found reading it to be both informative and entertaining. But as it is the sort of book which goes out-of-date practically as soon as it is published I can't really recommend buying it since current photos and pricing are always reflected and available to us all on e-Bay.
Great reference book, lots of great pics, has lots of different antiques, if you're a collector you must have this! You wouldn't believe all the stuff people throw out that are worth $$$
