Scrapbook -- Wrought Iron, Consoles, Tables

Description

Untitled scrapbook. Scrapbook has red fabric cover and is held together by twine laced through six eyelets. The number "4" is handwritten on spine. Scrapbook contains 50 pages. The materials in this scrapbook document a variety of tables encompassing a wide range of time periods and styles. The table of contents lists the following categories: wrought iron consoles, round tables, tip top tables, card tables, and occasional tables. The bulk of the materials are clippings from 19th century and 20th century periodicals, catalogs, and magazines, such as "Arts and Decoration," "House and Garden," "Country Life," and "The American Architect." Many of the clippings overlap one another. A watercolor sketch (page 37) depicting a three-drawer console table and mirrors may be the work of A. H. Davenport Co., Irving & Casson, or Irving & Casson - A. H. Davenport. Inside the back cover is a copy of the article "Art in Metal Furniture" by Harold D. Eberlen torn from a January 1918 issue of "Good Furniture Magazine."
