Much of the fine furniture made in Kentucky in the early 1800s came from small-town craftsmen, such as the artisan who made this walnut corner cupboard in Adair County in 1814. The inlay motifs include pea fowl, American Indians, hearts and eagles. It is from a private collection featured in the new book, “Collecting Kentucky 1790-1860” by Genevieve Baird Lacer and Libby Turner Howard with photography by Bill Roughen. Photo by Bill Roughen
