From around 1890, the architect and designer Ernest Gimson was the leading light of a vernacularly inspired furniture design movement referred to as the Cotswold School. This in turn inspired the early output of the Gordon Russell workshops in Broadway, and we are slowly building a group of domestic furniture made to Gimson designs by Edward Gardiner and the later workshop of Peter Waals. We in addition own an early Guild of Handicraft bookcase made in London in around 1890 and featuring copper panels by John Pearson (see also Metalwork).
