In Celebrating Canada, antiques expert Peter Baker illustrates and discusses a collection of historical Canadian an- tiques and folk art, each with a story to tell. Drawing from a private collection carefully as- sembled over the past four decades, Baker provides a tour through the past by way of objects from the early days of French settlement to the inspired creativity of late-twentieth-century folk artists. Throughout the richly illustrated pages, pieces from the collection are profiled not only to show- case their artistic merit, but also to define a signifi- cant event or period in Canada’s development as a nation. This beautiful, accessible volume honours the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation and 375 years of settlement in Montreal. Showcasing Canada’s diverse material culture and heritage, Celebrating Canada rekindles appreciation for historical objects that give a unique identity to each home. Peter E. Baker has been a professional antiques dealer for more than forty years and is a longstand- ing member of the Canadian Antiques Dealer Association. He lives with his wife Susan in an early stone house in southwestern Quebec. 3 M Q U P S P R I N G 2 0 1 7 A N T I Q U E S & C O L L E C T I B L E S • C A N A D I A N H I S T O R Y Celebrating Canada Decorating with History in a Contemporary Home peter e. baker Foreword by John A.
