This important book, the result of discoveries made during an exhaustive survey of Portsmouth furniture at more than 210 sites throughout the country, places the furniture makers of Portsmouth alongside those of Newport, Boston, Philadelphia, and New York as creators of some of the finest early American furniture. The Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities (SPNEA), a regional museum with more than forty properties, owns seven historic houses in the Portsmouth area. The objects in these houses constitute the largest collection of Portsmouth furniture anywhere. The present volume results from intensive study of SPNEA's Portsmouth holdings, surviving documents, and objects in both private and public collections. The research has uncovered much about the mercantile aristocracy that purchased and used the furniture and about the community of craftsmen who adapted English designs to satisfy their customers' tastes. With essays on the social history of Portsmouth, furniture production in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and entries for 117 objects, the book provides the first comprehensive study of the defining characteristics of Portsmouth furniture from 1670 to 1840.

The Metropolitan Museum's preeminent collection of early colonial furniture is expertly documented in this long-awaited publication. It covers the full spectrum of furniture forms made during the 17th and early 18th centuries--from chairs and other seating to tables, boxes, various types of chests and cupboards, and desks. Each of the 141 objects is thoroughly described with detailed information on provenance, construction, condition, inscriptions, dimensions, and materials. Photographed anew in color for this volume, each piece is explicated in terms of the styles and craftsmanship of the period and is evaluated in light of comparative pieces in public and private collections throughout the country. One appendix contains photographic details of construction and decorative elements, and another has drawings of joints and moldings.
