Arts & Crafts from a private collection - Wednesday, OctOber 8 th 2014- 6pm

The Arts & Crafts movement was a reforming artistic movement that originated in
England in the 1860s, and can be considered the precursor of the Modern Style – the
British equivalent of French/Belgian Art Nouveau.
The English architect and designer William Arthur Smith Benson (1854-1924) –
a member of the Arts Workers’ Guild and a founding member of the Arts & Crafts
Exhibition Society in 1896 – opened a metalwork factory in Fulham in 1890. It was so
successful that he soon opened further workshops in Hammersmith, specializing in
lamps, with designs that would hasten the development of electric light in Europe. A
two-branch gas wall-light in copper and brass (c.1895) encapsulates the simple formal
elegance and lightness of metal, here transformed into airy scrolls (est. €30,000-35,000).
Another remarkable production of the Arts & Crafts style is a sideboard in polished
oak, Gabonese ebony and wrought iron, designed by Bruce Talbert (1838-81) and made
by Gillows of Lancaster in 1878 for George Dixon of Birmingham (est. €40,000-60,000).
Only two other examples are known: one in the Victoria & Albert Museum; the other
in the Birkenhead Collection, London.
