by Griffith, Lee Ellen
University of Pennsylvania, 1988. Softcover. VG (Mylar covers are slightly aged, otherwise quite nice, with better illus. than most such publications.). Dissertation. Spiral bound, mylar covers, 260 leaves, 140 BW illus. Dissertation. An analysis of this form of surface decoration on 18th-century furniture in Pennsylvania. The patterns were studied and compared with documented examples in Wales, confirming the Welsh origins of this tradition. "It was concluded that while the manufacture of line and berry inlaid furniture was widespread in Chester County, Pennsylvania, and in neighboring areas, the center of production was in the southern townships of Chester County. Production peaked in the 1740s, and the majority of owners were Quakers of English, Irish, Scotch or Welsh extraction. The inlay tradition was quickly adopted by the non-Welsh and became part of a recognizable regional material culture." (abstract).
