Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An indispensable guide for collectors and dealers who want to compare and evaluate early American antiques. When Albert Sack's Fine Points of Furniture: Early American--Good, Better, Best was published in 1950, it established a new standard for evaluating American antiques. In his new book, Sack applies this standard to furniture pieces that have appeared on the market in more recent years. Full color and black-and-white photographs.

Book News Annotation:

Sack reprises his classic 1950 guide to evaluating American antique furniture, (Fine Points of Furniture: Early American--Good, Better, Best, Crown). This all-new guide adds two additional levels of excellence to Sack's grading table--"superior" and "masterpiece"--to reflect the great number of superb pieces that have appeared in the past 43 years. It features some 650 new color and b&w photographs detailing over 200 furniture types, supported by Sack's illuminating evaluations, which prize aesthetic standards as much as rarity, history, age, and documentation.
