The first survey of the history, design and use of trimmings in the historic interior in Britain and Ireland which will become the standard work on the subject. Trimmings have always provided a visual feast for the eye, an essential element in the grandeur and elegance of the interior and a major expense in the complete ensemble. This book will be a chronological survey of furnishing trimmings in the historic interior in Britain and Ireland and will examine the history, design and use of tassels, fringe, gimp, cord and braid (woven lace) from 1320-1970. Lavishly illustrated using new photography, the images will support a substantial text with references to extensive documentation, including inventories, bills, sale catalogs and other primary sources. The importance of the "laceman," the maker of these trimmings, will also be examined within an economic and social context together with his relationship to the upholsterer. The first of its kind, this publication will be the ultimate authority on the subject.
