Furniture

Post by Wim-Jaap »

Does anyone have any good pics/drawings/etches/ etc. of 18th century furniture (mainly chairs) in villages, Inns, and encampments?

Look at period illustrations by artists of the period, such as Hogarth, etc.

You can Google stuff like '18th century tavern furniture' and see what you come up with..

Look for a copy of British Campaign Furniture: Elegance Under Canvas, 1740-1914, by Nicholas A. Brawer. The copies I'm finding on Bookfinder are very expensive (the cheapest one I can find is €125) but maybe it's available in a library near you.

got me a copy of:

British Campaign Furniture: Elegance Under Canvas, 1740-1914 through the libraries..

Not so much begin 18th century stuff in there... much more 19th and later.

Thanks though for all the tips!
