Good news for those of you interested in the value of your junkshop finds – leading publisher Dorling Kindersley has launched a new antiques and collectables online catalogue, based on their bestselling antiques and collectables guide books.
There’s over 30,000 full colour photographs complete with prices and descriptions, broken down into sections including jewellery, glass, furniture, porcelain and our favourite – modern classics. And to launch the site, they’re also running a competition to win a collectable Murano Sommerso orange clear glass vase, worth over £400.
It’s far from complete, judging by some of sample searches I’ve just done. But it is free – and does cover many of the basics.
