€ 64,50
This is the first account of the development of English furniture in the early Georgian period to be published for many years. It is based wherever possible on documented furniture, and draws heavily on contemporary documents as well as the latest published research. It discusses both stylistic influences and the technical advances in furniture making, and offers a reliable, soundly based chronology drawn from dated examples. The book begins with an account of the furniture-making industry in London, followed by chapters on cabinet-work, case furniture, seat furnitures, tables, stands and looking-glasses. It also has appendices on cabinet metalware and furniture timbers, together with a full bibliography.
