Nigel Benson Glass - Group of Gray-Stan from 1926-36

During the 1920’s Elizabeth Graydon-Stannus formerly from Ireland, ran an antique business trading in Antique Irish Glass based in central London in Earl’s Court Square and had made herself into a recognised authority on the subject. In 1922 she decided to produce reproduction Irish glass and opened a studio , which was marketed under the name of “Gray-Stan” and made in Battersea, South London.

Jilly Cunningham -  A sample from a selection of beautiful light switches on show at the fair. 

The switches are unique works of art, handmade in Murano and Tiffany glass, and can be custom designed to complement the colours and style of your home.

 

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT THIS FAIR:

Cambridge sculptor Jilly Cunningham is about to transform our homes – one light switch at a time. Best known for her Cultural Legends series featuring luminaries such as Jools Holland, Ken Livingstone and Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, all of whom sat for her sculpture portraits, Jilly has now made the switch to home décor. Unimpressed by the unimaginative options available, Jilly decided to make her own.

Her first collection of shimmering light switches are fully functional works of art, hand crafted in Murano and Tiffany stained glass and will be on sale at the fair.
