With a reputation second to none during his lifetime, Harry Murphy was Britain’s leading jewellery designer of the first half of the twentieth century, and one of the most influential and accomplished silversmiths of the Art Deco and Arts & Crafts periods. One of the first to be nominated Royal Designer for Industry, Murphy was a widely revered figure who seemed in his many skills to encapsulate that early twentieth century dream, the successful marriage of art and industry. Yet today, he is little known. This book, published to coincide with an exhibition of Murphy’s work at Goldsmith’s Hall in London, redresses the balance and brings Murphy once again to the forefront of the public’s attention.

Condition: Very good hardback in clean dust jacket with some slight surface wear.
