As a collector, enthusiast or dealer, there’s so much to learn from someone who is experienced in handling and observing some of the greatest Art Deco pieces of this century. Judith takes you through her own experiences and shares some important trade secrets around sourcing, buying, selling and collecting. You will gain more experience of little known designers, unusual facts to know, and a sense of trends in collecting art deco.
