Product Description

American furniture of the 18th century is prized for its historical and artistic value by museums and collectors, and as a benchmark in design and craftsmanship by modern-day furniture makers.

In the first part of the book, Jeffrey Greene chronicles the evolution of the design and construction of 18th-century furniture, drawing on historical influences and the tastes of the period. In the second part, he explains and illustrates the techniques of the period furniture maker, including joinery and authentic construction; carving, turning and inlay; time-honored finishing methods; and making working drawings. The final part examines 24 important original examples in detail for their design, construction and artistic merit.

Written by a professional period furniture maker, this book is intended for anyone with an interest in 18th-century furniture. For antiquarians, it will serve as a detailed guide to the furniture maker's methods. For cabinetmakers of any period, it will be an essential reference on connoisseurship and historical methods.
