KIRKUS REVIEW

The decorative arts of 19th century America and Great Britain: clocks, tea kettles, wardrobes in rosewood and mahogany, jewelry, pottery and textiles. The rich, overelaborate artifacts testify to the sumptuous tastes of the newly opulent Victorian middle class, their houses crammed with intricately carved, embroidered and etched items. Instructive and of special interest to antique collectors.
