Description

Untitled scrapbook. Scrapbook has red fabric cover and is held together by twine laced through six eyelets. The number "6" is handwritten on spine. Scrapbook contains 50 pages. 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." The materials document a variety of bedroom furniture (including nurseries) and billiard tables encompassing a wide range of time periods and styles. The majority of rooms shown are from the United States and Europe; however, no location is given for many. New England locations include: Lindens (Danvers, MA); Peirce-Nichols House (Salem, MA); Israel Putnam house (Danvers, MA); and Ropes Mansion (Salem, MA).
