Metal ornaments, Germany, 19th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Metal ornaments, France and Germany, 19th century, (1898). Empire style fittings: Figs 1-23: Metal-Ornaments of furniture in the King's Palace [New Palace?] at Stuttgart and from the public collection of Wurttemburg antiquities in that place....The Napoleonic wars had considerable influence on the Empire-Style, in which afterwards were to be found emblems of Victory, eagles, laurel-wreaths and such like. In consequence of the Egyptian campaign new decorative elements were adopted, as for instance the capitals of Lotus-flowers, Sphinxes, winged lions and other Egyptian figures, joined sometimes to Chinese designs'. Plate 89 from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Fig 1: Chair-seat by Louis Tessier, Louis XV [c1715-1774]. Fig 2: Basket of fruit by the same Artist, Louis XV. Fig 3: Garland of fruit by the same Artist (Louis XV.). Fig 4: Chair-Back by Jacques, Louis XVI [c1774-1792]. Fig 5: Doorpanel by this Artist, Louis XVI. Drawn by W. Vivien, Paris...It is no wonder, therefore, that in the ensuing period under Louis XV and XVI Artists such as Watteau, Boucher, Tessier, Jacques and others should have taken up the work, or that they were certain of a triumph in the pursuit of a special department of art. For instance, if we observe the tasteful manner in which Tessier, the king's-flower painter, could group his flowers and fruit in characteristic garlands, and bouquets, we shall not hesitate to reckon him one of the finest flower-painters of the French school. The details here represented, from important works by this master, give some idea of his marked ability'. Plate 82b from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

Design for mural decoration, Italy, (1928). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Design for mural decoration, Italy, (1928). Creator: Unknown

Design for mural decoration, Italy, (1928). 2nd Quarter of 18th Century... Probably by a member of the family of stucco workers Bossi which was also considerably employed in Germany. The water-colour bears the inscription "Bossi inve : et deli." It is not clear whether this is an artist's signature or a
note ascribing the picture to Bossi. As there is, however no doubt that the inscription was written in the 18th century it may be regarded as more or less trustworthy'. After a water-colour. Plate CI, fig 195, from "An Encyclopaedia of Colour Decoration from the Earliest Times to the Middle of the XIXth Century" with explanatory text by Helmuth Bossert. [Ernst Wasmuth Ltd., Berlin, 1928]
