The John Scott Collection: Decorative Arts from the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries

11 June - 3 July 2014

John Scott has been collecting British decorative arts for over forty years, amassing what many regard to be the finest collection in private hands. The Fine Art Society are privileged to be presenting this remarkable collection. All works are offered for sale through a series of seven definitive exhibitions, the first of which is now on show at 148 New Bond Street. The exhibition is divided into three complementary displays over the three floors of the gallery:

 

'Modern English': Design from the 1860s and 1870s l 11 June - 3 July 2014

Powell & Sons: Whitefriars Glass 1860-1960 l 11 June - 3 July 2014

British Art Pottery l 11 - 20 June 2014

 

The collection includes examples by the most prestigious designers and manufacturers from the 1850s through to the mid-twentieth century, including Pugin, Dresser, Jeckyll, Morris and De Morgan. Responding to the products and energy of an expanding Empire and modern industry, John Scott has assembled a collection which illustrates, brilliantly and fully, one of the richest and most innovative chapters in the history of design.
