This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...out the best from the hundreds some of the cloth and paper volumes were creditably executed. The charm of form devoid of ornamental detail was apparent in a delightful back of beaten silver (or white metal). The Yattendon copper has been already praised, and much other metal-work deserves notice, but owing to the absence of readable labels (all information being on tickets attached to the articles, and not quite within reach of a visitor), it must be left without detailed comment. MIRROR FRAME. DESIGNED BY MRS. WATERHOl'SE. EXECUTED BY JOHN MAHER. Yatlcndon of the results; so that these notes must be more or less disjointed. This year the Pimlico branch, under the very able directorship of the Hon. Mabel de Grey, is not quite so conspicuously to the fore in the show, partly because it is numerically less important, and partly because, on the same lines as before, with duplicates of certain designs seen last year, it does not come with the same air of novelty. A medicine cupboard, designed by Miss de Grey and cleverly inlaid in coloured woods by John Reason, brings to memory the Toadstools box illustrated in a former Studio, but this is much the more pleasing of the two. The other objects are not peculiarly striking. The Yattendon stall also keeps its place, and by a fine show of repousse copper, excellent in design and thoroughly characteristic of the metal. The reticence of the ornament, its simple originality, and naive restraint may be a little archaic; but, if so, the affectation is so charming that it adds grace to the whole. Indeed, superlatives may be not misplaced in praising certain items in this collection. The large collection of objects contributed by the Sandringham branch, shows some really excellent work by royal amateurs....
