Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0901286184, Hardcover)Compiled over a period of seven years by nearly four hundred researchers, this is the definitive reference work on furniture makers active in England between 1660 and 1840. The Dictionary lists makers in alphabetical order, recording biographical details, commissions, and information about signed or documented pieces together with full supporting references. Illustrating the various ways in which makers identified their furniture, historians, collectors and those with a commercial interest in antique furniture will find this book an indispensable source for identifying makers known hitherto only by faint inscriptions, faded labels, or scattered references in country house archives.
