Molesworth: Pioneer of Western Design is the quintessential monograph of the legendary Thomas Molesworth, his life and work. As the first thoroughly detailed and complete guide, it explores Molesworth's journey to becoming one of the leading western furniture designers. Molesworth's innovative designs-his sense of balance, simplicity, and artfulness-are visible in all of his efforts. He has a degree in business administration from the University of Nebraska.

Terry Winchell has dealt in antiques for more than twenty-four years as owner of Fighting Bear Antiques in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Thomas Molesworth, were he alive today, would be both proud and amazed at the influence his Shoshone Furniture Company and the Cody artists' colony he inspired would have on his old hometown and the Western Design movement seventy-two years after he started producing furniture.

Thomas Molesworth, were he alive today, would be both proud and amazed at the influence his Shoshone Furniture Company and the Cody artists' colony he inspired would have on his old hometown and the Western Design movement seventy-two years after he started producing furniture. Based on nearly two decades of buying, selling, pursuing, and researching Molesworth furniture, Terry Winchell has created a definitive book that covers all spectrums of Molesworth's work, including the influence of the other artists who made his style unique, as well as stylistically and financially successful. The fact that Molesworth's furniture career spanned thirty-plus years speaks for itself. An excellent guide for collectors of Molesworth's work, this book is also an invaluable resource for fans of the Western Design movement. Just as Gustav Stickley was influenced by John Ruskin and William Morris, Molesworth was certainly influenced by the Stickleys and others in the Arts and Crafts movement. Molesworth's early training at the Art Institute of Chicago as well as the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement are apparent in the simplicity and balance of his designs--yet he went a step further by using silhouettes, bright colors, and Native American motifs to personalize his efforts. He was not satisfied to stop there, however. Molesworth showcases furniture on display at the Buffalo Bill Historic Center (Cody, WY), the Museum of the American West (Los Angeles, CA), the Bear Butte Visitors' Center (Sturgis, SD), and Yawkay Plantation (Georgetown, SC), among many other locations. Chapters cover Molesworth's career, education, and the development of his furniture company. Terry Winchell has dealt in antiques for more than twenty-four years as owner of Fighting Bear Antiques in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He is a recognized authority on rustic and Thomas Molesworth furniture, has performed museum appraisals for the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, and has consulted for the John Toomey Gallery in Chicago and Christie's in New York. Winchell has been published in Architectural Digest, Art & Antiques, and Cowboys & Indians, and has been featured on HGTV, the BBC, and Antiques Roadshow. Most recently, Winchell was a featured speaker at the Third Annual Arts and Crafts Weekend Conference and Show in Anaheim, California. He graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in business administration.

This book is so wonderfully done that I bought a second one to complete my library in my second home, which happens to be a log home. This book is a great historical account about a designer who revolutionized and set the standard for this style if furniture, which really is unique. This book is large and the pictures are great. They are hard to find as well so grab it if you can. I actually bought a replica of one if the pieces of furniture in it I was so inspired.

Highly informative reference that entertains!!! Having a house in Molesworth country and knowing the author was an added incentive to purchase the book. While the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, WY is a treasure trove of Molesworth pieces - this book is THE reference book for those who cannot make the trip or those who are just interested in Western furnishings and interior design. Many reproductions are still being crafted in Cody Wy. Loved, loved, loved the layout and information within!!! Most highly recommended. I would give it 5+ stars out of 5.

Best book I have on this subject. As a furniture maker, I have a number of books on the subject. If I had found this one first, I wouldnt have needed any of the others. Highly recommend.

Good book great quick delivery. I thought it was strange that the photographer chose to have a chair with a no do patch on the cover of the book though

I Ioved this kind of furniture before it was ever popular. His designs are well thought out and create a warm friendly atmosphere.
