Book review

Innovations in lighting design were rampant in the early decades of the twentieth century when electricity opened a new alternative, and therefore an opportunity, to home furnishing. One of the largest manufacturers of new lighting devices was the English firm Sherwoods Ltd. in Birmingham. In this book, displayed and specifically described, are all forms of illumination devices the available for sale. Oil burning as well as electrically powered table and floor lamps, chandeliers, scones, and lanterns are shown in vast numbers. The styles range from classical to ultra-modern with all the revival style so in between. It is fascinating to see the variations in size, ornament, materials, and use-all made by Sherwoods. Today, as authentic examples of lights from the early years of this century are becoming scarce, this book remains a testament to the actual styles produced. Antique lovers find it a valuable resource.
