SUMMARY

In 1926 the Century Furniture Co. of Grand Rapids, MI, published this basic treatise on period furniture. The company, with a team of premier craftsmen working with wood from all over the world, advertised that they could reproduce most any piece of furniture featured in this book. Beginning with the Egyptian & Greek Age & running through the Early American era, 25 different periods are explored. Five hundred years of distinctively different styles, shapes, lines, decorations, legs, & finials make this quick reference an added tool for beginners as well as those considered experts in the field of period furniture. This facsimile ed. includes a chronology of furniture styles; glossary; & over 150 actual photos & nearly 100 line drawings.Barry Leonard is the author of 'Antique Furniture: A Basic Primer on Furniture Featuring 25 Distinct Periods', published 1999 under ISBN 9781422351628 and ISBN 1422351629.
