American furniture and prints as well as English ceramics from an extraordinary Milwaukee collection tell stories of stylistic change, regional preference, solutions of technological problems, artisan-patron relations in a market economy, the new consumer impulse for more and different furnishings, and how Americans responded to English, European, Asian, and African influences.
