“In choosing the specimens of furniture studied, an effort has been made to select subjects that will serve best, both as sources of inspiration for original designs, and as models for the manufacture of replicas.” -- Verna Cook Salmonsky


Verna Cook Salmonsky scoured the collections of major museums to gather examples of the best pieces of 16th - 19th century furniture for a detailed analysis of what features make these masterpieces so great. The prices include tables, chairs, couches, desks, dressing tables, highboys and more. Even better, the book includes measured drawings for each piece of furniture - perfect for woodworkers interested in creating detailed replicas.

The comprehensive nature of the analysis - each piece’s materials, stylistic features, functions, etc. - and the book’s extensive bibliography makes it a wonderful resource for scholars, antique dealers, furniture designers and collectors.

For woodworkers the measured drawings are complete but are not working drawings. Joinery details are not shown.

With 102 photographs and over 500 drawings. Softcover. 8 1/2" x 11".

222 pages. Printed in the USA.
