Excerpt from Furniture

In such a work the pictures tell the story almost better than the letterpress. I feel, therefore, that I have been very fortunate to secure the help of Mr. H. M. Brock, whose drawings not only faithfully reproduce the piece, but seem in some subtle way to convey the spirit of the time in which it was made. Every sketch has been taken by the artist from furniture now or recently in the possession of my firm at the Octagon. Many of the examples have been purposely chosen of a simple character, because they are more typical; and because, being more obtainable, they are more interesting to the average collector. It is, indeed, the fine drawing in the simplest bit of old work, rather than its elaboration, which is its special charm. With regard to values, rare and elaborate pieces are now, of course, costly; but much genuine and satisfactory work of this simpler type can still be procured for moderate sums. The collector who aims at having everything of one period should avoid a very early date, as many of the comforts, which have become the necessities of a modern house, were not then understood, and it means that furniture, more or less new in character, has to be put up with, or worse, that old bits are pulled to pieces and made up into other articles. In this way many a fine antique bedstead has been destroyed to create a sideboard or mantelpiece of no artistic or monetary value whatever.
