Book Description

Jan. 1 1990
This is arguably the most detailed study ever made of any branch of British furniture. Its unique scope embraces the work of hundreds of craftsmen throughout the country, working within the general tradition of their area, yet superimposing their individual design signatures. Employing a remarkable combination of talents, the author has examined thousands of regional chairs, researched local archives, conducted field studies and collated anecdotal evidence to relate the evolution of known types and makes. The result, far from being a dry research document, is a fascinating living account of the development of hundreds of chair types from all over England and the lives of the craftsmen who produced them. This book has revolutionised collecting and the study of vernacular furniture. It continues to be studied avidly by collectors as hundreds of new makers' names emerge from the anonymity of generalised terms such as Windsor, ladder back and spindle back. This reprint is most welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars The authoritative guide to english regional chairmaking. Jan. 19 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This superb reference volume examines the English regional chair (particularly windsor and ladderback types) as a vernacular tradition of craft and design. It is more comprehensive than any other book ever written on antique furniture. A work of the very highest calibre by a most respected, insightful and dedicated scholar. Study in this field, often inspired by this extraordinary work, is still continued with great enthusiasm. It simply cannot be bettered!
