Arts & Crafts

A walnut breakfront open bookcase by Morris & Co., designed by George Jack.
Sold for £2,728

Taking its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, held in 1890, the movement grew out of a concern for the detrimental effects of industrialisation on design and traditional skills. Objects from this era highlight the natural beauty of materials combined with fine craftsmanship.

Ceramics from this period represent a field that has matured considerably over the last 30 years with many collections selling for progressively higher prices. Martin Brothers’ Pottery, William de Morgan, Moorcroft and Pilkington’s Royal Lancastrian to name but a few, are increasingly rare and sought after.
