Household Antiques and Heirlooms
An inventory of Philippine antiques and heirlooms from the late 19th - early 20th century, this book by Felice Sta. Maria places these objects in the context of the Filipino's gracious and festive lifestyle during the turn of the century. It also traces the antique trade - from Escolta, the prime mercantile district of the 30s where most of the goods originated, to Ermita, an antique and flea market area where most of the goods end up.
