Wallace Nutting lamented in 1928 that southeastern Massachusetts had been so picked over by dealers and collectors that it had become the ‘least likely of any region to yield old furniture.’ However, this new study by Brock Jobe, Gary R. Sullivan and Jack O’brien, assisted by a cadre of other authors, proves that Nutting was mistaken. Harbor & Home provides a rich contextual examination of the cabinetmaking and clockmaking crafts in this area from 1710 to 1850, linking the area’s furniture to Boston and Newport while defining its own distinctive characteristics. It will surely become a standard text in the literature on regional styles in early American furniture.
