Table of Contents


Eileen Dubrow has exhaustively combined all original catalog material from major American furniture manufacturers of the 1880s and '90s. This period was American's hey day of growth, and its furniture is the fastest growing field of collecting today.

This book will enable the reader to identify makers and provide an indication of other pieces available. This book presents a fascinating study showing hundreds of examples covering furniture for the dining room, parlour, library, bedroom (brass beds), and office (a tremendous number of variations of roll top desks), including rattan and children's furniture.

These pieces are still available in the market place at reasonable prices and are superbly crafted. This book contains a price reference guide.

2000 illustrations


From the inside cover:
