Antiques Trade Gazette: London Looks at Japanning

We were delighted to have our winter exhibition featured in this week’s Antiques Trade Gazette in an article entitled ‘The Furniture Crossover Culture.’  The article explores the intersection of Asian lacquer brought over to England from the 17th century and the subsequent imitation of this lacquer by English craftsmen, known as japanning.

We hope you will come and visit us at the gallery to see the exhibition for yourself.  To learn more about japanning in England, read our previous posts here and here.
