The literature on English period furniture has largely been dominated by a preoccupation with that of the rich and upper classes, resulting in a neglect of the humbler pieces used in more ordinary homes over the centuries. This attitude is now regarded as unacceptable, however, and the past everyday furniture of England has accordingly become the focus of intensive research. This book, the first major production of its kind and now a classic reference work, examines the pieces found in humbler urban and rural homes over a span of some four centuries, throwing fresh light on such aspects as regionalvariations, dating assessment, construction techniques, stylistic influenceand context. Each of the many examples illustrated, most of them previouslyunpublished in book form, is accompanied by a detailed caption giving timber,a realistic date range and an extensive description, including such informationas local characteristics, finish, distinctive decorative features and manufacturing methods. In this second edition both the format and the text have been thoroughlyrevised and the number of illustrations greatly increased. The Author David Knell is a former Sotheby’s consultant with a specialist expertise in early and vernacular furniture. In addition to contributing articles to periodicals and academic publications, he has lectured widelyon his chosen field both in North America and in Britain. Brought up in Canada, he now lives in West Sussex, where he is furniture consultant to the Mary Rose Trust. His professional involvement with theauction world allows him to actively continue his research * The first and only work of its kind on Country Furniture * The first book to stress the full impact of Oriental influence on English furniture * Challenges several popular beliefs and re-evaluate * Very readable and accessible text. Printed Pages: 414 with 108 colour and 625 b/w illustrations.
