In 1940, the Baker Furniture Company of Holland and Grand Rapids, Michigan published a rich catalog of their fine, hand-finished 18th century reproduction furniture. It was filled with examples of their craft and with information about the sources of their designs. For the furniture designs in this catalog, whose images are basis of this new edition, Baker Furniture drew upon private collections, museums, and antiques dealers. In addition, they used vast company collection of 18th century furniture of Europe and America, collected by Hollis S. Baker, the son of the founder, Siebe Baker. The results are beautiful and are much sought after today.
This new edition has illustrations of over 600 reproductions, with important information about dimensions, materials, and the provenance of the design. In addition there is a guide to the current market values.
