Carter’s price guide to antiques

From an Armani velvet jacket to a Zulu snuff container - it's all been there for years in the wonderfully illustrated and popular annual Carter's price guide to antiques. The great news is that it's all now accessible from home through the Carter's price guide to antiques online.

The Library recently subscribed to this new eresource which has entries for more than 90,00 antiques, collectables and art antiquities as well as retro, vintage and 20th century design sold at recent auction sales in Australia and New Zealand. Each entry includes a description, price, date of sale, a professionally photographed image and the contributing auction house. The prices shown are based on actual selling prices at auction. It is searchable by category and also by keyword. This eresource is a price guide only and not an online marketplace for antiques and collectables.

Search eresources for 'Carter's price guide' under the subject Art, Architecture & Applied Arts and also by title from the Browse eresources title list.

The guide is also findable in the State Library catalogue under its title Carter's price guide to antiques online.
