Footnotes

  • This cabinet has much in common with the work and design principles of Christopher Drssser. The overall form is simple and progressive for the period, fitting into an early doctrine of 'form following function'. By contrast, and in keeping with some of the contradictions found in Dresser's designs, the copper mounts are highly decorative and may be compared to his ironwork designs produced by Coalbrookdale in the 1860's and documented copper examples by Benham & Froud from the early 1870's.
