About the Arts and Crafts Movement
An international design movement that flourished between 1860 and 1910, and continued its influence up until art deco era of late 1920's to 1930's . It developed first and most fully in the British Isles as it quickly spreaded to USA , first in southern USA states (especially in rural areas). The Arts and Crafts styles started as a search for aesthetic design and decoration and a reaction against the styles that were developed by the type of machine-production of its time. Arts and Crafts objects were simple in form, without superfluous decoration yet some were very elaborate art nouveau, constructedin a manneroften still visible. They tended to emphasize the qualities of the materials used ("truth to material"). From 1860 to earlier 1900's, various 'arts and crafts' makers established workshops (often in rural areas and manyin Chicago, IL) and revived old techniques used from previous centuries. The late 1800's to early 1900's patterns werevery muchinspired by PRE-1800's British tribal (particularly Celtic) to British floral as tribal types were usually most popular usually amongBritish menof 1600's to late 1700's and fauna and used the vernacular, or domestic, traditions of the earlier British countryside.There were alsoalotof these crafters , (manyunknown), whom were ofBritish Englishancessoryor UK imigrants,usually of thesouthern Eastern USA,(as the movement went from Georgia to Virgina) as much of the German, Norwegian and other imigrant crafters were of the northern Eastern USA Statesmovement , primarily of Chicago, ILwhichwas aninternational sort of haven of the movement. Interestingly, much of the USA Euro imigrantscrafted in USA toavoid duty payeable.
