Early English Furniture

Early English Furniture

A study of furniture from medieval to Tudor times referring in particular to its construction, decoration and usage and also to continental influences affecting its development.  The solidity of early English furniture reflected its practicality, utility and durability and rather than being the product of a ‘primitive’ craft-technology, it was extremely ‘fit for purpose’ and reflected the ever-developing skills of the artisans who made it.  

This lecture would complement a lecture programme including other lectures on mediaeval or ‘Early English’ topics.Back to Lectures
