History of Furniture: Ancient to 19th C.

Front Cover
Guild of Master Craftsman, 2004 - Antiques & Collectibles - 223 pages
No one is better qualified to discuss the evolution of fine furniture from ancient Egypt to Victorian England--with full details of its construction, decoration, use, and historical context--than Michael Huntley. As the Head of Furniture Restoration and Conservation at Sotheby's and author of the acclaimed "History of Furniture" articles in Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine, he speaks with authority on every style and every period. With the aid of color photographs from Sotheby's unrivaled archives, he gives everyone interested in the subject--collectors, dealers, curators, museum-goers--a book that is both a magnificent gallery they'll visit from cover to cover, and a definitive reference they'll return to again and again.
