I own every Miller's guide since 1983--so I had to have this. I do believe the 2009 guide was the best one in the series. That was a bit more down to earth than the 2009 to 2017 volumes. They'd also be more up to date if they were published annually as they were until 2009. Publications were a lot more useful and effective before the current author became re-involved and the format was changed to match her previous publications.
Judith Miller delivers a broad section of antiques, their current going prices, and some observations. Some categories cover a few pages while others only show one page. So while you get a range of prices, your specific item may not be appraised. (That's why I rate it 4 stars.)Judith's comments are very helpful to locate the country of origin and historical details. Everyone will appreciate the trivia if they spend any time with the book.I own several volumes of Judith Miller books. The most informative was her Encyclopedia and the most visually satisfying was Decorative Arts. They are beyond 5 stars each.
It was just a little bit of everything. Nothing specific and can't be used for reference since 99% of the time the item you are trying to reference will not appear in this book. I suppose it is useful when you are just educating yourself for when you happen upon a piece that appears in the book. Nothing wrong with the book but I suggest looking at a physical copy before you order because it may not be what you are expecting.
Excellent reference... Miller's are the best
