With a wealth of colour photographs taken specially for this volume, this book clarifies the nature and variety of chairs and seating in Britain from 1500 to 1700. Unusually, all the illustrations are accompanied by the dimensions of the pieces, and attention is drawn to restorations or missing parts or replacements, as well as to rare, fine or particularly interesting features. The author, Tobias Jellinek, handled and examined every piece illustrated. Early British Chairs and Seats will help the new or wary enthusiast get to grips with some of the difficulties in authenticating old furniture, and by example and explanation will demonstrate what serious buyers should be looking for. It also displays the superb quality and fascinating range of the finest furniture of this period. AUTHOR: Tobias Jellinek opened his first shop in 1966, specialising in early oak furniture. He has been a private consultant and dealer for several serious collectors and enthusiasts, and was the oak consultant for Sotheby's Auction House. 500 colour illustrations
