FRENCH WROUGHT-IRON DESIGNS
Extract from Decay and Revival of Smith Craft, Country Life, 1929, pp. 187-187
"All crafts have shown a marked revival since the war, though the metal-working crafts are not so nimble as some others in following up fresh paths. In spite of the very remarkable achievements of Edgar Brandt and other French metal workers, very few English smiths have followed this lead, except in the case of designs for such minor works as hanging and wall-lamp fittings, in which the influence of Brandt's vigour and force and daring originality may be traced."
