Hundreds of handsome designs from the turn-of-the-century are presented in this, the most comprehensive collection of glowing oak furniture ever published. Pictured are many styles of tables, chairs, sofas, sideboards, clocks, bedroom suites, chests, and cupboards in more than 670 color photographs. The author explains quality and points out details of construction and ornamentation in her descriptive text, and provides current values and an extensive glossary of terms. This is an invaluable reference work for all antique collectors and dealers, and a terrific guide for interior designers and furniture designers alike.
