The Best Books about American Antique Furniture
a book list by Ellen F. Brown, Writer
It's a ritual repeated every weekend in cities and towns across the country: as Saturday morning dawns, antique hunters converge upon yard sales, antique malls, flea markets, and swap meets. These tenacious folks scrutinize every piece of old furniture they can find, pulling out drawers, turning things upside down. They are not beyond crawling on the ground. The following books offer an overview of what these people are looking for. Developing an eye for antiques takes years of practice, but a little book smarts goes a long way.
