BOOK REVIEW FOR
WELSH FURNITURE 1250-1950 :
A CULTURAL HISTORY OF CRAFTSMANSHIP AND DESIGN
BY RICHARD BEBB
taken from: www.welshfurniture.com
"Richard Bebb's work is a tour de force, and its breadth is astonishing. The time-scale studied is wider than the norm; by 450 years, and the story is brought up to 1950. But all this would have been meaningless if the author did not have a tale to tell. Rest assured, he does.
Recognized as the foremost authority on Welsh antique furniture, Richard Bebb examined personally thousands of pieces of furniture and hundreds of documents. The outcome is Welsh Furniture 1250 - 1950, A Cultural History of Craftsmanship and Design' which is set to become a classic reference book for historians, craftsmen, those involved in furniture design and the decorative arts; antiques dealers, owners and collectors; and all those with an interest in Welsh culture."
