With the clocks going back in October, we take a timely look at the world of antique longcase clocks and reveal why they are popularly known as grandfather clocks plus what you can expect to pay for one of these handsome timepieces. Emma Longstaff delves into the history of intaglios – the original Grand Tour souvenir, and she also talks to an avid collector of optical antiques about their passion.
Meanwhile, anyone with a penchant for glittering glass will enjoy Antiques Roadshow specialist Mark Hill’s feature on the work of glass pioneer Sam Herman. All this plus four welcoming houses brimming with lovely antiques and great decorating ideas, plus Celia Rufey takes us on a journey through the art of patchwork and quilting.
