ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES

Use subjects in this section for works about collecting the objects specified and/or for works on the history of these objects if they are not covered in other sections (such as ART).  For works discussing the techniques used to make the objects listed in this section, use subjects from the appropriate section (such as CRAFTS & HOBBIES).

Multiple subjects may be used to describe a work fully: for example, a book about the restoration of antique furniture could be assigned "ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES / Furniture" and "ANTIQUES & COLLECTIBLES / Care & Restoration".
