About this title

Synopsis:

The Spanish Revival movement in architecture was well established when Barker Brothers, a California furniture retailer, approached the Mason Manufacturing about creating a line of Spanish-styled furniture. That was 1929, and within a year Mason had created a 24-piece line of furniture called Monterey. It was immediately popular, and would continue in production until 1943. Today this high quality, beautifully designed and decorated home furniture is much sought after by collectors. This richly illustrated book shows Monterey furniture in color to capture the variety of its hand-painted finishes and forms. In addition, related pottery, fine art, textiles, and interior accessories from the Spanish Revival period (1915-c. 1943) are included, representing a variety of artists and manufacturers. In all, there are over 500 photographs, each with a helpful caption. The material for this book is based on an exhibit at the California Heritage Museum, Santa Monica. Guest curator, Roger Renick, has provided historical essays. For the first time, this popular phase of American decorative arts is put in its cultural context.
