Book - A Question of Polish - Details of the Antique Market in Australia
A Question of Polish - by Terry Ingram. Book VGC. Australians have always venerated old things. Terry Ingram explains the reasons for this anomalous situation in a witty and informative manner. He takes a hard, sometimes irreverent look at the wheelers and dealers in old wares in Australia and discusses some of the 'finds' which have not lived up to their promise. This book is a collector's piece for collectors and even for those for whom antiques hold minimal interest it is a slice of Australian history. 262 x 198mm., pp. 192, b/w and colour plates throughout, notes, index. Hard cover in dust jacket.
