Colonial Sense: Antiques: Furniture Styles: English Jacobean This is the first in a series of new articles on the different antique furniture styles and how to differentiate them. This article covers the English Jacobean period, running from 1603 to 188.
News-Antique.com - Jan 18,2011 - Colonial Sense has begun a series of chapters in a new article on the different furniture styles found during (and slightly after) the American colonial era. CS hopes the reader will gain some insight into the often confusing and subtly differentiated antique furniture styles. The first style covered is on the English Jacobean period
Colonial Sense is an eclectic web site, encompassing a variety of topics related to early American living and the colonial sensibility. In addition to original articles and content, CS also provides information for lovers of All Things Colonial: an event calendar, forums, antique auction results, marketplace, latest news about the era, and more.
In addition to the original articles covering various aspects of antiques, Colonial Sense also (usually on a monthly basis) gathers together information from a variety of sources about antique auction results that fetched prices that greatly exceeded -- or, sometimes, did not meet -- the expected sale price. In addition, Colonial Sense will sometimes add entries of interest for unusual items that are of note simply because of their rarity.
Antique auctions (and shows, estate sales and the like) can be found in Colonial Sense's Event Calendar, which covers, in addition to events about antiques, craft shows, exhibitions, and most any other event that would be appealing to colonial-philes. The event calendar is fully searchable by state, date range, event type, keyword and more.
