The Crace family were the most important firm of interior decorators working in Britain in the 19th century. They earned this title by the sheer number and importance of their commissions, working for every British monarch from George III to Queen Victoria and on a range of buildings that includes royal palaces, Leeds Town Hall and the Great Exhibition building of 1862.;This book examines the history of the Craces, from their humble origins as coach decorators to interior decorators of the Royal Pavilion, Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. The text also analyzes the artistic styles of the period and discusses the conservative nature of the Craces' work. Out of print book
