American Art Deco Furniture (Art Deco Pros) is a limited edition book that covers the development of an American “style” of furniture that breaks from European tradition. It took 3 ½ years to research and write and draws on 38 years of experience in buying, selling and collecting by Ric Emmett, one of the most knowledgeable and respected dealers in Art Deco since 1979. At 569 pages, the American Art Deco Furniture book contains over 200 previously unpublished photographs of amazing furniture, over 200 pages of documentary period copies of advertisements, as well as press releases and patents. The book also has a section on the tags and markings on furniture of the period as well as a useful bibliography.
