Collecting Kentucky

This book was one of the hot sellers at the 2014 Lake Cumberland Show in February. The authors were there autographing the book. Below are photo spreads from the web site where the book can be purchased.

"Collecting Kentucky 1790-1860 presents antebellum Kentucky artifacts from over fifty of today's most inspired private and public collections. It celebrates collectors, past and present, who continue to locate, research, and save the material archive of Kentucky and it documents extant objects: furniture, silver, art, textiles, longrifles, and stoneware. Exceptional handmade objects of our country's first westward movement are shown in 600 full-color photographs.
Delve into the amazing craftsmanship, beauty, and rarity of these period objects displayed in collectors' homes. Observe the material, discover the stories, investigate the makers and owners, and study the relationships between pieces and between collections. Immerse yourself in remarkable Old Kentucky."
