                                                                   ART:  Good, Better, Best€

Art comes in many forms and €œquality€. It is the eye of the beholder€ and artist that make the most important assessments.  Israel Sack, world respected purveyor of Art in American Furniture, may have expressed it best in his book "The Points of Furniture",€ known by many  as GOOD, BETTER, BEST.€ It is the concept of €œcomparison. Again, it is a persons judgement and societys judgement of any object of art on its merit. In reality, no one can have all the best even if it came €œlabeled.€ There is €œromance associated with all things of America's past. To own a piece of any quality€ is a privilege.
