It is nearly two decades since this authoritative work first appeared in an abbreviated wartime format. It was, at the time of its first publication, the first full-length book to cover in detail the collecting of Pennsylvania "Dutch" furnishings and crafts. Now it has been redesigned and enlarged, to make it again available in the more luxurious format it deserves.
The Pennsylvania Dutch country may be said to have been "discovered" by collectors in the 1920's and 1930's. These unique people, with their old-world customs and colorful folk art, have created in America an authentic genre, with a flavor much in vogue among experienced decorators, as well as amateur collectors.
Mr. Robacker, a native Pennsylvanian and a collector himself, introduces this volume with a general discussion of characteristic Dutch country art forms and craftsmanship, emphasizing its authentic "peasant" quality in contrast to the more elegant styles of other early American furnishings. Chapter by chapter he discusses typical pieces of furniture, china, kitchenware and other articles, giving careful descriptions of each important piece, its availability, and most important, the rules for a collector to keep in mind when on the trail of real Pennsylvania Dutch "stuff."
This volume offers a thorough orientation in Pennsylvania Dutch country antiques and makes fascinating reading for anyone interested in the general subject of old furnishings. As the first volume to assemble the scattered and fragmentary information on the subject, it is an invaluable guide for those who merely want to achieve authentic atmosphere in home decoration. Many fine illustrations supplement the text, and a partial list of museum collections gives additional guidance. The book contains a full discussion of the basic principles of Pennsylvania Dutch decoration, and an appraisal of the quality of reproductions available on the market.
Welcome to Volume 5 of my poetry. This is a departure from the first 4 volumes, in that I am only including poems from 2014 through April of 2016. So everything you read is fresh and new. "Word Tapestries", "My Words", and "Poetry is Not #3" discuss my views on poetry itself. "Private Conversation With Myself" is as personal a look at who I am as I have ever attempted. "Sorrow" and "I Found Happiness" are the Yin and Yang of life. Of course there is the usual social commentary like "Martians, Isis, and God" and love poems like "Melting Point of Love". Enjoy the read, and contact me at email@example.com, if you want a more intimate discussion. peace and joy, Jack. P.S. There are religious poems too, like "Only Small Things", about Mother Teresa's life. Finally, this volume ends with "Because Life Is So Hard", a poem about afterlife, heaven, and hope.
