Carnegie Museum of Art is renowned for its collection of decorative arts and design objects. This volume presents, for the first time, the collection's highlights, from early porcelain to Arts and Crafts furniture to contemporary turned wood. More than 100 illustrated entries detail almost 200 European and American objects from the 1750s to the present. Included are ceramics, furniture, metalwork and glass by noteworthy designers and manufacturers, such as Meissen, Tiffany, Herter Brothers, Marcel Breuer, Peter Voulkos and Ron Arad. Also featured are the museum's important holdings of early western Pennsylvania furniture, innovatively designed chairs, and contemporary glass and aluminum objects.
