Antique Furniture Recognition Chart

I love this from Beryl Conway Cross’ Better Home Making: a super-handy one-stop chart to help identify antique furniture periods.

She included it in her book as a guide for when buying furniture for the house. It’s no less useful for that 60-odd years later.

(The plate is taken from my 1950’s edition.)
