A look at historicism and crafts in the 19th century, briefly reviewing the reasons for the development of historicism and the styles it influenced, before studying the various types of objects falling under that category. The book is aimed not at design historians but collectors, with a section on advice on collecting at the rear of the book. However, it is well illustrated and a useful reference work.
