Design Classic – Influential and important design
Teapot with warmer
Christopher Dresser, was a pioneer of modern industrial design, was born in 1834. He developed a variety of every day goods for silverware manufactures in London and Birmingham between 1865 and 1885. All of the artefacts were mass-produced and, for the most part, silver-plated. After the World Fair in 1851, Dresser’s designs and instruction at the London School of Design were essential in reforming the British decorative arts. Dresser, like Edward William Godwin, was influenced by Japanese art. The straight slightly flared feet and angular handles, which commonly create a right angle, are typical of Dresser’s style.
