Paperback with card covers. Foreword by Beverley Nichols. Constance Spry’s work in this field is now so well known that this book is now considered a classic master piece. Sixty years ago British society florist Constance Spry (1886-1960) used a whole range of kitchen and dinnerware for the flower arrangements presented in her concise guide How to do the flowers (1952). As Mrs. Spry was also principal of a cookery school, her choice of fish-pans, sauce-boats and cake-tins must have been abundant. Mrs. Spry however was also known for using bird cages, junk metal lamps, shells and other unusual containers for her flower arrangements.  Condition: covers creased, rubbed and slightly foxed.  Some scattered foxing to pages, otherwise very good.
