Overview

This comprehensive, profusely illustrated resource celebrates 250 years of English design, from the early 18th century until World War II. Including the work of both world-famous and anonymous designers, it offers a cornucopia of tableware, doorknobs, kitchenware, chairs, lighting, flooring, and more drawn from original pattern books and sales catalogues, much of it never before published.

From the time of Hepplewhite and Sheraton, English firms have produced elegant solutions to practical problems. Acclaimed designer Stafford Cliff researched company archives and little-known collections in manufacturing centers throughout England to locate the wealth of original designs reproduced on page after page of this amazingly rich sourcebook for designers and decorators.
