Arts and Crafts Works of Art, Furniture and Jewellery at McTear's, Glasgow The Arts and Crafts movement of the later nineteenth and early twentieth century was just that- a movement- rather than a style alone or mere fashion. This artistic and ideological movement encompassed many social, economic, industrial and religious drivers and had a great impact on British and international design that still resonates today.


The artists of the Arts and Crafts movement had many shared ideals including the belief that, “a well designed environment- fashioned with beautiful and well crafted buildings, furniture, tapestries and ceramics- would serve to improve the fabric of society for both producers and consumers...” Objects created by these artists were produced using traditional techniques, many specifically from the medieval era, and by hand. A ‘truth to materials’ was key to many who sought to bring out the natural features of materials rather than to disguise them. In an age of industrial mass production, this way of working truly was a radical change in design and production ethos.


McTear's regularly auctions items in the Arts and Crafts style including jewellery, furniture and metalwork. In July's Works of Art and Furniture auction there were several items in The Style that soared past their estimates including lot 1042 ARTS AND CRAFTS HAMMERED OXIDISED COPPER HALL LANTERN.


If you have an item that you wish an valuation for then please contact sarah@mctears.co.uk or come to our salerooms during 8.30-5pm.
