An alphabetically organized reference for farm implements from the 1800s through the 1940s. Each entry includes an overview of the implement or tool (for example, churns), and notable examples of brands, often illustrated by drawings or photographs. Each example includes a brief summary of the history and use of the particular implement. Although confusing at times because of its lack of an index and broad subject headings, this volume will be useful and entertaining for farm antiques buffs. From Book News, Inc. The current popularity of the "country look" in home decorating is reflected in the growing number of collectors of American country antiques. Generously illustrated with photographs of country furniture, decorated stoneware, graniteware, and more, this is a useful sourcebook for the collector.
Prices are offered with the assumption that the items depicted are in original and excellent condition. The authors have consulted private collectors, auction houses, and nationally known dealers. From Booklist, 1994
