wall brackets designed and executed by
the guild of handicraft, ltd.
Unfortunately no in-
stance is forthcoming of
a design which attempts
to mitigate the naked
hideousness of the quasi
funnel in white china and
the metal "gallery" of
the inverted incandescent
light. It is vain, however,
to lavish decoration on
the accessory bracket, so
long as the actual burner
which it leads up to re-
mains, from the esthetic
point of view, the eyesore
dutch wall bracket designed and executed by
w. a. s. benson & co., ltd.
Messrs. J. S. Henry & Co.'s wooden electric fitting (p. 174)
is a sample of the kind of work of which this firm make a
speciality, producing various appropriate designs for rooms
decorated in the French and Georgian styles.
DOOR FURNITURE AND OTHER FITTINGS.
The same remarks about metalwork, in the section on artificial
lighting (pp. 170 and 171), apply equally to all kinds of metal
fittings, and, therefore, need not be repeated here. Yet another
fault is wayward eccentricity. Thus it is not impossible to meet
with a bell-push in the shape of a cat's head, with gaping mouth,
bracket lantern in a button taking the place of the tongue; so that ringing the bell
is like thrusting one's finger down the creature's thioat, a perfectly
wrought and hammered iron
designed by c a. ll. roberts
executed by e. & r. gittins preposterous device !
