Antique needlework tools and embroideries by Nerylla D Taunton( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive study of needlework tools from the 17th century to the Edwardian era. The format of the book groups the tools into periods and relates them to the style of embroidery fashionable at that time. The heavy silver needlework tools of the 17th century are related to the raised and padded embroidery of that era now known as stumpwork. The more delicate embroidery tools of the Georgian era are grouped together with fine embroideries. Palais Royal sewing boxes and their superb mother-of-pearl contents are illustrated, as are the glorious carved ivory needlework tools that originated from the Dieppe region of France. The Victorian lady chose her sewing box, work table or sewing set from the tremendous range available of which illustrated examples include tortoiseshell, papier mache, Tunbridge ware and Mauchline ware. The Edwardian era was the era of sterling silver and needlework tools of sterling silver were produced in enormous varieties. Many were English in origin but American silversmiths produced a vast variety of distinctive designs

English furniture, 1660-1714 : from Charles II to Queen Anne by Adam Bowett( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book describes the development of fashionable English furniture between the restoration of Charles II in 1660 and the death of Queen Anne in 1714. Based very largely on contemporary documents and on original and firmly documented furniture, it provides a closely-reasoned analysis of changing furniture styles, together with much technical information on materials and processes. The author's radical new approach to the stylistic and structural analysis of furniture will change perceptions of English furniture and establish a new chronology for late 17th and early 18th century English furniture. This illustrated book is the first comprehensive review of the subject for nearly one hundred years."--Jacket
