About this title


Except for a relatively small number of London productions made for British royalty and aristocracy, all other fine Queen Anne and Georgian masterpieces have tended to be misrepresented as English ever since the collecting of such antiques came into vogue toward the end of the nineteenth century. The actual origin of hundreds of outstanding pieces exhibited as English in leading British and American museums today was Dublin, an error the lifelong research of F. Lewis Hinckley has done much to rectify. High-quality Dublin pieces began to cross the Atlantic after 1903, when Daniel Farr, owner of a highly successful antique shop in New York City, began finding these items on the London market. When English antique dealers followed the Americans into the Dublin market a panorama of distinctive Dublin seat furniture, cabinetwork and looking glasses was soon recognized.
