Bromsgrove Guild


Bromsgrove Guild

The Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts (1898–1966) was a company of modern artists and designers associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement, founded by Walter Gilbert. The guild worked in metal, wood, plaster, bronze, tapestry, glass and other mediums. [ [http://worcestershire.whub.org.uk/home/wcc-museum-bromsgrove-guild-objects Worcestershire County Council] ]

The Guild received a Royal Warrant in 1908. [ [http://www.asdx02.dsl.pipex.com/bsoc2003/guildbo.htm The Bromsgrove Society] ]

The Guild's most famous works on public display are probably the main gates of Buckingham Palace.

Unlike many other Arts & Crafts companies that faded away after a few decades, for instance the William Morris company, the Bromsgrove Guild survived until the early 1960s.
