Modern design in jewellery and fans
Holme, Charles
Persistente ID:
JOHN RUSKIN has laid down some broad and simple rules Which 
are especially applicable to DESIGN IN JEWELLERY AND 
FANS. He says, " Never encourage the manufacture of any article 
not absolutely necessary, in the production of Which invention 
has no share." And, again, "Never encourage imitation, or 
copying of any kind, except for the sake of preserving records of 
great works." 
IT is in thc thorough belief of thc soundness of these principles that 
thc Editor has selcc-tcd a number of rcpresentative modern examples 
of design by British and Continental workers, which, from thcir 
beauty and freshness of treatment, bear tcstimony to thc grcat advance 
that has recently been made in thc right understanding and rendcring 
of thc jewelleris and fan-makefs arts. If articles of good tastc are to 
be produced, there must be a demand for them. So long as a public 
is to be found that Will purchase trinketry in imitation of wheel- 
barrows, cocks and hens, Hower-pots, and moons and stars, so long 
will thc advance in art be retarded. 
THE Editor has pleasure in acknowledging the courtesy of the 
owners of copyrights for their kindness in sanctioning the 
reproduction of important Work; and his best thanks are due 
to all the artist-contributors, and especially to those Who have 
made designs expressly for this publication.
