Chinese Household Furniture summarizes practically everything that is known about authentic Chinese furniture before it became vitiated by Western influences and almost driven out of existence by debased imitations of Western furniture. Drawing upon scanty Chinese historical sources and surviving pieces of furniture in private collections and museums, Mr. Kates covers the history of styles, the various unusual woods that were used, craftsmanship, principles of design, furniture arrangement, and specific forms like cupboards, wardrobes, dressers, tables, desks, small tables, beds, stools, chairs, chests and boxes and other pieces. Lacquered work, tourist trade material, export material, and impure styles have been omitted; only authentic material is discussed. 112 photographs (each with full analytical text) illustrate typical pieces.
