Product Description

edited by Vanessa Habib, Jim Gray & Sheila Forbes

Every field of the decorative arts in colonial and early America is infused with Scottish culture – from furniture, textiles and weaponry to silver, jewellery, glass and ceramics. Making for America is a fascinating study of the transatlantic relationship between Scottish craftsmanship and the emigrant workers of the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries who embraced a new life in America.
