Identifying American Furniture offers answers to the questions most people ask about furniture: What style is that? How can you tell? and When was it popular? Curators, collectors, appraisers, connoisseurs of furniture, and students of history, architecture, and the arts - as well as those just learning the fascination of stylistic trends in American furniture-will find this succinct handbook essential. Styles are arranged chronologically from 1607 to the present and represent all thirty-five major furniture styles from Arts and Crafts to Windsor. Milo M. Naeve's vivid commentary draws attention to the book's 196 photographs, pinpointing distinctions among the styles. Naeve also offers an excellent guide for further reading.
