About this title

Synopsis:

Little is known in regard to authentic London furniture and looking glasses because of scarcities that are striking in comparison with the productions of other large cities in Europe and the British Isles. Of continental cities only Paris was larger during the Georgian era, while Dublin ranked next in size. It has long been the view of F.Lewis Hinckley that a thorough knowledge of Dublin furniture designs is a must in order to understand the source of a great many of the highly sophisticated metropolitan pieces currently found in British and American museums that carry London attributions. Clearly the volume outstrips what known London cabinetmakers could have turned out, while the English hinterland has yet to yield the names of artisans who could have worked at such high levels of design and execution.
For collectors of Americana, a knowledge of Dublin designs is highly desirable both for recognizing their influence on the development of American furniture, and for evaluating any Dublin pieces that reach the market mislabeled as American productions.

About the Author:

F. LEWIS HINCKLEY has served as authority to many leading collectors, dealers, auction houses and appraisal firms, in a career that has included private appraisals and vetting of antique furniture for The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The White House.
