Strategies for Recognizing English vs. American Furniture
Registration Information
December 2, 2015 | 9:00am - 3:30pm
New York, NY

Distinguishing American from English furniture makes a difference, not only in accuracy of identification but also values. Much early furniture can be readily separated, but other examples require considerable analysis, and still others cannot be distinguished with reasonable certainty.

This two-part study day will begin with a presentation by Dr. Zimmerman who will review several strategies of identification. Topics will include differences in design, construction and materials.

In the afternoon we will visit the Levy Gallery for on-site examinations of American furniture offered by this premier dealer. Thispart of the day- long program is intended to present the physical realities of American wood identification and construction in order to contrast them by example with English counterparts. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine how to identify differences between American and English furniture
  • Learn about wood and construction techniques used in American furniture 

Members earn 5.5 CE credits.
