Introduction

The period furniture designs of the 17th through the early 19th centuries are regarded as the standards of design quality and the execution of those designs are the benchmarks of excellence in workmanship.

Reproductions of the museum originals provide the look and feel of the period original at a fraction of the cost and without the liability.
