Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Delight of the Ungepatchket Gilded Age The Artistic Furniture booklet is another brilliant publication from the Met and very reasonably priced. The pictures are large, crystal clear and in lavish color so one can see the intricacies of this incredible furniture and interior architecture. The text is easy to read in depth on the subject and breaks new ground in reporting on the mostly forgotten firm of George A. Schastey & Co. The collections represented go way beyond the Worsham-Rockefeller Dressing Room that I went to see (fools at the Museum of the City of New York to have deacquisitioned this material, Thank you met for this and all your historic rooms) The collection of aesthetic movement furnishings in the new galleries of that period are all included in the booklet along with period photos of the houses from whence they came and other pertinent examples of related material in color where possible, such as original designs for draperies etc. In a phrase this is a slim volume with big bang! Thank you Metropolitan Museum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always, research impeccable This is a great resource for the brand-new Worsham-Rockefeller dressing room. Highly recommended resource for students of the decorative arts, women's history, and the Gilded Age. Shipping a bit slow, however.
