An essential reference for curators, private collectors, dealers, auctioneers, investors, social and cultural historians, includes entries for 660 Australian furniture and picture frame makers, retailers and
designers - the result of seven year's gallery, museum, library, newspaper and field research. Superbly illustrated with over 1000 photographs, 600 in colour.
Australian Furniture: Pictorial History and Dictionary 1788-1938 is the most comprehensive survey of quality furniture, its marks and makers, yet undertaken in this country. A natural progression from the authors' previous works, Early Colonial Furniture in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land (1972) and Nineteenth Century Australian Furniture (1985), this volume is designed to further assist in the accurate identification and dating of furniture made in this country prior to the outbreak of World War II.
Divided into two sections, the first, a dictionary, includes over 660 entries. Biographies of makers, retailers and designers
