A new title in this groundbreaking series is unlike any other currently available collector's guide to American and European samplers. Much more than a pricing manual or an illustrated showcase of beautiful pieces, this indispensable volume is a master class in appraising schoolgirl samplers and pictorial needlework. Two of America's leading sampler dealers and experts, authors Stephen and Carol Huber show you how to develop an appraiser's eye and identify those factors that add or subtract from value. Features include a unique compare-and-contrast format, professional appraisal secrets, full-color photographs of more than 120 samplers, price ranges given for every item, detailed instruction on how to assess style, condition, authenticity and value and expert advice on how to collect, display and care for samplers.
