About the Author


Judith Miller began collecting antiques in the 1960s while a student at Edinburgh University.  Fascinated by the inexpensive plates she bought in the city's junk shops she began to research their history in books and auction catalogues.  She has since become one of the world's leading experts in antiques.  From 1979 until 1988, Judith served as the co-founder of the international best-seller Miller's Antiques Price Guide and has since written more than 80 books, many of which are held in high regard by collectors and dealers.
