The formation of this choice collection and the production of the ambitious catalog are testament to the Milwaukee Art Museum's strong community support. The handsome, scholarly tome presents furniture, silver, base metals, ceramics, glass, and needlework in the collection arranged by style period (17th century, William and Mary, Queen Anne, Chippendale, and Federal). Concise essays introduce each section, incorporate the latest research, and demonstrate the collection's particular strengths. A team of experts who examined the objects have presented descriptions ranging from the specific to the general (i.e., from individual construction techniques and repairs to the history of a form's use in American and scientific identification techniques. Highly recommended for special and academic libraries with related collections.
