Lot Essay

Edward Bawden (1903-1989) trained under Paul Nash and Edward Johnston and was initially employed by the Curwen Press designing posters for London Transport and wallpapers. His later freelance work included items for Twining's Teas, Poole Potteries, Shell-Mex and Fortnum & Mason. The present suite of cast-iron garden furniture was originally designed for the Bilston Iron Foundry in 1956. For similar examples see The Fine Art Society, Edward Bawden Retrospective Exhibition.
