Summaries and Reviews
Covers china, glass, and silver description: Product Description: With magnificent photographs by the bestselling photographer Joshua Greene, Almost Antiques will build on the success of Penguin Studio's classic Antiques for the Table. It opens up to collectors a new frontier--the fine china, glass, and silver of 1890 to 1940, easy to find and still affordable--in an exciting overview of four coexisting design movements: Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts, Beaux Arts, and Art Deco. This is the first tableware book to mix and match these increasingly popular styles for tabletops, which are unerringly fresh and original. The period homes and haunts of the rich and stylish, from Hollywood's imagemakers to Detroit's barons of industry, create au courant backdrops for the settings: readers are invited to sit at the captain's table aboard the Queen Mary, mix a cocktail in Edsel Ford's moderne bar, join Frank Lloyd Wright for dinner, and toast the New Year at Mabel Dodge Wilson's mansion. Complete with a resource guide and directory of sites, Almost Antiques is both a practical guide and a gorgeous gift for seasoned and novice collectors and entertainers alike.
