This is a fascinating and truly readable analysis of the importance of the several Williamsburg cabinet making shops and the role they played in the furnishing of homes of eastern Virginia. Williamsburg was far more important a center of influence in the decorative arts, as it was in other areas, than it has been given credit for, and this careful exploration bears this out in a very enjoyable way. The photography is splendid, and the piece-by-piece furniture analysis takes on the air of a detective novel after a while. Highly recommended.
