Introduction

The Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 19th century brought with it a revival of traditional, handmade jewellery production utilising semi-precious stones, enamel and silver. The designers of these jewels trained using centuries old techniques without the use of machinery and their work is becoming increasingly valuable today. This lecture presented by Dr Sally Hoban looks at the work of designers such as Charles Ashbee, Bernard Instone, Arthur and Georgina Gaskin, George Hunt and Archibald Knox and also the silver and enamel jewellery produced by Haseler’s in Birmingham for Liberty and Company in London.
