Williamsburg

$15.00

Large catalog packed full of color photos and drawings of 18th c furniture, textile, dining pieces, decorative pieces, and accessories. Each item includes a descripting paragraph. Also has chapters on various topics such as "Introduction to Williamsburg Bedspreads, Fabrics, and Wall Coverings" and an illustrated glossary of furniture terms. These older catalogs, from when Williamsburg still meant top quality (partnered with Wedgewood for their china, for example) are excellent references for 18th c English furnishings, which were imported to colonial Virginia. This book is in pristine condition, order forms and color plates for paint matching all intact.
