Rare Arts & Crafts Ring attributed to Henry Wilson



Very good
Henry Wilson, a leading figure in the British Arts & Crafts movement, was described by C.R. Ashbee as the ‘arch individualist’. Wilson was a trained architect. He taught metalwork at the Central School of Arts & Crafts from 1896 & the Royal College of Art from 1901. His definitive textbook ‘Silver work & Jewellery’ was published in 1903. The following was written of him ‘Henry Wilson’s originality stemmed from his ability to combine the strictest disciplines of his craft with a multitudinous variety of influences, resulting in some of the most daringly individual jewels of the period’
cf. Jewelry & Metalwork in the Arts & Crafts Tradition, Elyse Zorn Karlin, 1993
