100 British Chairs
100 British Chairs depicts a selection of chairs that date from several important periods in the history of British chair design. Presented in a roughly chronological sequence, the emphasis is on early (pre-1745) and late (post-1840) periods. The presentation is also thematic, and this more accurately represents the purpose of the book, which is to illustrate some of the key developments in British chair design in the chosen periods. Design and development before 1740 were largely the work of artists and craftsmen whose names have been lost, so the chairs are mostly unattributed and arranged by type and period. The later chairs are arranged differently, highlighting the work of well-known designers of the Gothic Revival, Arts and Crafts, and other progressive British design schools. Readers wanting more detailed information can find it, together with numerous images, in the full online catalog - www. crabtreefarmcollections.org - which will be continually developed and...

Faberge's Animals: A Royal Farm in Miniature Caroline de Guitaut In 1907 King Edward VII and his consort, Queen Alexandra, commissioned Peter Carl Faberge to create miniature hardstone carvings of all the animals on their sprawling country estate at Sandringham in Norfolk.
