Liberty Arts and Crafts Exhibition Catalogue 17th May - 17th June 2012

Welcome to the 2012 annual Liberty Arts and Crafts selling exhibition.
This year's exhibition will include some magnificent pieces including an extremely rare and exceptional large silk embroidered hanging designed by May Morris. There will be a superb range of Arts & Crafts furniture with representations from William Birch, E W Godwin, Shapland and Petter, Morris & Co, Bruce Talbert, A.W.N. Pugin, Robert Lorimer and The Guild of Handicraft, amongst others.

There will be items from key metal work designers such as Archibald Knox, John Pearson and W A S Benson. We have a wonderful collection of Rowely Gallery inlay wood panels and mirrors and a fantastic selection of embroideries, tapestries and wall hangings.

The catalogue does not give items' dimensions, so, for these or any other enquiries please use the contact form (see link above), or email, quoting the reference number. I will be at Liberty’s most days, but if you want to talk to me about any pieces please contact me on my mobile 07939 226143.

I hope you enjoy the exhibition and I thank you for your continued custom.
