Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0901286710, Hardcover)This volume, compiled with the active co-operation of many antique dealers, collectors, auctioneers and scholars in the UK and abroad, provides a pictorial record of all known marked items made by London furniture makers between 1700 and 1840. The survey contains over a thousand illustrations supported by background notes on the makers, together with an introduction which examines the reasons why certain firms employed labels, name straps, or engraved brass tablets.
This compendium forms an indispensable illustrated companion to Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840, co-edited by the author and Dr G. W. Beard, although it has been planned as a fully self-contained work of reference.
