Always Room for Dresser

As it is Monday evening, and I ought to be studying, I have instead decided to post about the Eternal Dresser.

Always a wonder, so just a few images:

Vase 1880

Painted floral decoration in imitation of cloisonne

Old Hall Earthenware Co.

14″ high

A favorite for quite some time, these oddball designs Dresser came up with, to amuse and dazzle. always tickled by demon handles, can never have enough.

Vase 1888

I need this color, EVERYWHERE.

hallstand 1867

I love how well Dresser adapted to the needs of the Industrial Revolution. He seemed content mass producing his designs, even something as wonderfully banal as a coat-tree.

The man, the genius,

Christopher Dresser

1834-1904
