Have a silver collector on your gift list?你可以给他们一个价格指南-或者提供抛光他们失去光泽的部分。(道格·杜兰/员工档案馆)
出版: | UPDATED:

这是我每年为古董爱好者或历史爱好者收集的最新出版书籍,放在你的节日礼物清单上。I've also added a few antiques and collectibles experiences that are sure to please.

  1. With the ongoing popularity of action figures and items "Star Wars" related,你可能想拿起莱斯利·辛格的《你读过我吗?:老式通讯玩具”(希弗,96页,24.99美元)。150幅彩色图像以装饰艺术和20世纪30年代到70年代的未来主义设计为特色。这本圆滑的书,which includes a price list,is the epitome of cool.

  2. 市场上有很多价格指南,但朱迪思·米勒(JudithMiller)常说的“美国贸易圣经”。现在是第25版,“米勒收藏手册和价格指南:2019-2020年”(米勒,432页,27.99美元)有4000张照片,详细描述和价格范围。The heavy-duty paperback is peppered with "Judith's Picks" and "Quick References," providing the reader extra knowledge.

  3. Dawn Cook Ronningen's masterwork "Antique American Needlework Tools" (Schiffer,240页,34.99美元)上有750幅插图,展示了别针的例子,thimbles,缝纫辊剪刀,templates and needles any collector would covet.她简单但引人注目的文字使这本书易读。

  4. 装饰理念来自屡获殊荣的室内设计师和设计师乔安妮·帕米萨诺。Her newest release,"Styling with Salvage" (The Countryman Press,238页,$27.95),拥有大量易于复制的环境图片。Whether you are enamored with country,回收利用,酿造的,重新定位,or traditional antiques and collectibles,你会在这里找到你的风格。SusanTeare拍摄的照片附有一份方便的资源清单。
  5. Just when you thought you knew everything about our area,along comes "Historic Bay Area Visionaries" by Robin Chapman (History Press,176 pages,23.99美元)。This remarkable volume has chapters on people you may not be familiar with — such as Thomas Foon Chew and Juana Briones — along with personalities like Robert Louis Stevenson and Sarah Winchester who come to life under the author's pen.理想的袜子填充器。
  6. "Selling Dead People's Things: Inexplicably True Tales,Vintage Fails,以及老经销商Duane Scott Cerny(雷神出版社,293页,14.95美元)提供了一个幕后观察价值数十亿美元的古董生意的机会。The true stories here prove the writer's contention that "people are their things."
  7. 学术性和权威性是看到编辑朱迪思·米勒和邓肯·坎贝尔(Hachette Book Group,1032页,$175).如果您的礼品清单上的银器大师想要确定一个制造商或原产国(包括大约70个)。these books are indispensable.

  8. 如果一本书做不到,howabout honoring a friend with a gift membership in a historical society or a museum?  Regional institutions are located around the Bay Area from Walnut Creek to Palo Alto to Gilroy.他们为保护我们的社区做了很多事情,而且依靠你。如果你需要建议,请发邮件到本栏底部的地址。

  9. 一个真正独特的礼物是请你的朋友参加古董展。你的郊游可以包括接送,admission and lunch.一个想法是:圣。圣何塞的克里斯托弗古董展将于1月举行。25-27.

  10. For a gift that doesn't cost money,do what my friend Dan did for me one year.他给了我一张手写的纸条,上面写着他会完成一项我们中很少人喜欢的任务——他会打磨我失去光泽的银器。我提供了清洁剂和三明治,他使这些碎片闪闪发光。
