New room at the British Museum, 1845. Creator: Unknown

New room at the British Museum, 1845. Visitors in the western wing of the British Museum in London, recently opened to the public: ...though the articles in the cases are scarcely yet arranged. In the centre of the apartment is placed the magnificent Chinese Bell, taken from a Buddhist Temple at Ningpo, and presented to the Museum by her Majesty [Queen Victoria]. On account of the present position of the Bell, the new apartment at the Museum has been called the "Chinese Room"; though, besides this spoil, there are but few curiosities of Celestial civilisation. Here will be found the specimens of South Sea manufacture which formerly filled the first of the old suite of the Museum Rooms...There are, likewise, several idols, happily becoming comparatively rare in the countries whence they were obtained.'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Wedgewood vase, 1786, (1950). Pegasus Vase Creator: Shirley Markham

Wedgewood vase, 1786, (1950). The Pegasus Vase, made of jasper ware with applied white reliefs, and Pegasus or winged-horse finial on the lid. Produced by the Wedgwood factory. This example in the British Museum in London. Shirley Markham (1931-1999) studied Graphic Design and Illustration at Central School of Art in London from 1950-1952. The writer, artist, poet, and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-1968) was one of her tutors, and her style of drawing was also influenced by other British illustrators such as Edward Ardizzone, Quentin Blake and Edward Bawden. Markham spent time in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy, and also visited Rome, sketching classical buildings. After graduating from Central, she worked as a graphic designer, producing book illustrations, cartoons for comics, menus and programmes. She gave up her promising career however when she got married in 1957. Middle-class women at that time were expected to devote their energies to bringing up children and running the home, and despite her obvious talent, she lacked the confidence to return to illustration. Her portfolio remained in the family attic for many years, but now her work is published here for the first time
