February Issue Preview – Furniture Price Index of 2012

The next issue of Antique Collecting will include the annual ACC Antique Furniture Price Index. Published since 1968, this highly respected feature will reveal the value of furniture in 2012 relative to previous years, and indeed, decades.

With insightful comparisons to the FTSE 250, house prices and the benchmark cost of a Mars bar (in the form of line graphs), John Andrews clearly illustrates and dissects last year’s figures.
