STUDIO-TALK

TRIPTYCH IN SILVER, IVORY, AND
ENAMEL SET WITH FIRE OPALS,
CARBUNCLES, AND MOONSTONES.

STUDIO-TALK.

(From our own Correspondents).

triptych illustrated above figured in
a recent exhibition at the London County-
Council Central School of Arts and Crafts,
of which he is a student, and it is shown

examples of domestic silver ware by this
young artist-craftsman are given in the
current issue of The Studio Year Book of
Applied Art, where also will be found
other work by students of the same
institution. 00000

such as it was he did his work well. 0
