Advert For John Eede Butt & Sons, Makers Of Hardwood Frames
Medium: Print on paper
The Victorian home looked very different to today’s fashion for light and spacious dwellings. Ornaments of all shapes and sizes were displayed on large ornate pieces of hardwood furniture, clocks and vases were arranged on mantelpieces and photographs were proudly displayed in large collections. Paintings were placed in elaborate frames and hung on thin chains from picture rails. This is an advertisement for John Ede Butt and Sons who specialised in making hardwood frames for their customers.
