Christopher Dresser was not only one of the most important and prolific designers of the late 19th Century, he was also the most versatile, producing the widest and most refined range of art objects of any designer from that period. A formally trained botanist and former protegé of Owen Jones, his diverse background equipped him with a deep understanding of ornament inspired by nature from cultures all over world, past and present. This piece designed for Linthorp demonstrates his mastery in fusing ancient motifs with natural forms.
