Overview

When American-made reproduction furniture burst on the scene at the turn of the century, it immediately became the day's most popular furniture. In Reproduction Furniture: Antiques for the Next Generation, Emyl Jenkins tells about the look-alike pieces created in the early 1900s, when there were no longer enough period antiques to go around. How and where was "the furniture for the people" made? What styles and designs did the manufacturers copy? How can you distinguish well-made and designed reproductions from quickly nailed together pieces? Here, for the first time in quick reference form is an extensive list of many manufacturers who made the furniture our ancestors bought new that is now 50, 75, and even 100 years old. There is also a directory of today's craftsmen who are making fine reproduction furniture, as well as a handy pricing guideline. Particularly important is the section on furniture styles. In these pages you will learn how to identify a Queen Anne-style chair and a Louis XV-style writing table. There is also an easy-to-read section on the new machines that made it possible to mass-produce reproduction furniture. This information is invaluable when distinguishing between furniture that "looks old" and that which really is old - period antiques.

This accessible, user-friendly source of information on American reproduction furniture explores this overlooked chapter of the history of home furnishings, telling how, when, where, and by whom these beautiful pieces were made. 250 illustrations.
