Description

These superb original plates are from "Studies in Design",  a collection of 60 designs for domestic ornament  created by Dr Christopher Dresser, the most influential designer of his generation.  The work was published by Cassell Petter & Galpin in 1875, the plates printed by A Goater of Nottingham. 

The quality of the chromolithograph printing is very high and produces a full but flat colour quite different from the modern prints.

Dresser wrote  "I have prepared this Work with the hope of assisting to bring about a better style of decorations for our houses. My book is intended to help the decorator and to enable those who live in decorated houses to judge, to an extent, the merit of the ornament around them."   

The plates are in a new mount which will fit a standard 16 x 20 inch frame - see two photos of prints in  frames for illustration. The area inside the mount measures 27.3 x 38.8 cm and is in excellent condition.

Each print will be sent flat with acid free backing paper and protective polythene wrapping.
