This book serves as an excellent reference for Victorian furniture and is a great buying aid due to the large number of photographs with captions that identify the maker. Includes profiles of many of the famous makers such as John Henry Belter and J & JW Meeks.

Beautiful book, since I use to reupholstered this type of furniture I love the pieces; only wish now that I'd kept some of it. Museum pieces now. Looking at the craftsmanship today and back then, no comparison. What a pity for all the lost talent. Beautiful. Thanks

My primary interest is in J. H Belter, with J. & J.W. Meeks running behind. This book shows one of Belter's most elaborate furniture pieces--on the cover

If you want a book of general information on Victorian Furniture, or want to compare some of the styles of that time, it is OK.
The 99.9% of the photographs are black and white, and include the values seen in 2000, in this revised edition. I cannot find any measurements.

Format: Hardcover
I have purchased this fine Antique Reference Book before, but not this edition and had I realized it had prices I would not have purchased it again. These prices are out dated the minute they are established and hence this book does a dealer of fine Antiques NO favors and a disservice to the collector. If the values are 10 years old, what does that say for today's value. You can't buy gasoline or groceries with an established price of 10 years ago and you can't buy antiques that way either.

Terrible thing they ( the publishers ) did to such a fine reference book.
