From the Publisher

American quilts are among the hottest collectibles, and this colorful new volume in the groundbreaking Miller's "Treasure or Not?" series is an indispensable guide to this popular subject. Stella Rubin, a well-known dealer with more than 25 years of experience in quilts, identifies what makes one quilt worth more than another, and explores a wide range of designs from different eras: Colonial through the Industrial Revolution, Victorian to Colonial Revival and the Depression eras. On each spread, full-color photos of two quilts, related in style, technique, or intended use, appear on facing pages, surrounded by captions and notes highlighting each quilt's "value features"-those factors, such as material, design, condition, and authenticity, that account for the item's relative market value.
