Historic Chairs and the Tales They Tell
by Gun Bjerkander Handberg

“Old chairs deserve to be taken care of. Straight-backed and with dignity and unfailing loyalty, they support us throughout our lives, keep all our secrets, share all our joys and sustain us in our sorrows.”

This charming little book draws on a wealth of experience from the world of auctions and museums to focus on seventeen chairs from seven different countries from the 1600s to the present day. The author shares chairs’ memories of the often fascinating lives they have led and of the people who have lived with them. From doll’s house miniatures to majestic silver throne, this book gives chairs their well-deserved place in the limelight.

Since graduating with a BA from Lund University, the author, Gun Bjerkander Handberg, has devoted much of her life to art and antiques as a museum curator, lecturer, columnist and auctioneer.
