Kelmscott Manor and Hart Gold and Silversmiths.
Thursday 06 June 2019

Kelmscott Manor was the inspirational Cotswold summer retreat of William Morris, his family, friends and colleagues. When Morris first saw the Manor in 1871, he was delighted by this 'loveliest haunt of ancient peace'; he signed a joint lease for the property with his friend and colleague Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the Pre-Raphaelite artist. This former farmhouse contains an outstanding collection of the possessions and works of Morris, as well as of his family and associates (Benson, Edward Burne-Jones, Rossetti and Webb among them) that includes furniture, original textiles, pictures and paintings, carpets, ceramics and metalwork.

HART Gold and Silversmiths - a team of craftsmen specialising in the best traditions of handmade silver. The workshop is the last operating remnant of the Guild of Handicraft which C.R. Ashbee established in 1888. George Hart was a silversmith with the Guild when it moved to Chipping Campden in 1902. Hart’s specialise in a wide range of domestic silverware from cutlery to bowls, jugs, condiment sets, silver tea and coffee services and the largest of salvers.
