selection of designs for textiles and wallpaper

Many of our designs are for wallpapers and textiles and were created by the Silver Studio. They were sold to manufacturers around the country between 1880 and the early 1960s. These designs are in a variety of media, including pencil, inks, charcoal, pastels and gouaches.

We also have designs for textiles and wallpapers by other people including Enid Marx, and architectural designs by JM Richards made while he was a student at the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
