Its Unusual Position and Policies 

ART PATRONS and Art lovers of Chicago long 
JL** have recognized the need of a permanent gallery 
where they might purchase paintings and art objects 
of approved merit. In the same degree artists have 
known the necessity of some direct and established 
method of presenting their works to the public. A 
gap existed between the artist and the Art buyer until 
in 1911, when The Artists Guild was organized to 
bridge it. Briefly stated, the artists' idea was to league 
together in a co-operative body, secure display and 
sales galleries and offer the best Art works at the 
same price as the work would command if bought 
direct from the artist. From the start the plan has 
been a success. 

Security for the purchaser, unquestionable high 
standard of Art works and elimination of all unneces- 
sary expenses and profits, so that the buyer may feel 
sure of the highest intrinsic values, are the principles 
on which the artists built this institution. Recogniz- 
ing that assured permanence is a strong feature in 
establishing confidence, their first step was to secure 
Guarantors and Life and Associate Members, so that 
during the period of making the public's acquaintance 
there might be no doubts about existence. 

To insure the merit of all works to be sold a jury 
of selection was formed, capable of deciding on the 
quality of paintings, jewelry and all Art and Craft 
productions. The question of price has no bearing 
on the work of the jury and our patrons often have 
expressed delight at finding how many truly beautiful 
and artistic works can be found here at reasonable 
prices. Artists joining the Guild must have estab- 

Page Five 


lished a reputation either here or abroad. Acceptance 
of an artist's work by the Art Institute of Chicago 
often is used as a criterion, but any artist whose exam- 
ples are approved by the jury is eligible. Neither is 
the membership strictly localized. 

Giving the patron complete Art value has been 
accomplished by a simple and efficient method of 
administration. The corporation pays neither profit 
nor dividend to anyone. The Art works are handled 
with a minimum of expense, so that the purchaser 
receives a fullness of value not obtainable from the 
ordinary business organization. All affairs are admin- 
istered without financial remuneration by a Board of 
Directors and Officers who are ex-officio members of 
the Board. An Executive Committee conducts all 
business affairs, subject to the control of the Board 
of Directors. The Secretary alone receives a salary. 
Actual sales and direction of the galleries rests with 
the Secretary, who is retained as Managing Director. 

Increased sales since the beginning, and especially 
during the past two years, show how genuinely the 
public appreciates good paintings and hand-wrought 
objects. Givers who love to offer what is "exquisite 
and rare rather than what is merely precious" seem 
to be our especial friends, and for those who prefer 
having their selections seconded by the most expert 
opinion The Artists Guild offers straight judgment 
unbiased by consideration of profit. 

This spirit pervading the entire plan has impressed 
our visitors almost as forcibly as the great beauty of 
the Art works themselves until patrons have come to 
feel a deep personal interest in The Artists Guild. 
That is the best fulfillment of the artist's idea. He has 
brought his choicest creations here and given them a 
home where you may come and take delight in them.

He feels that the galleries are more for you than for 
him and he welcomes you accordingly. Perhaps 
nowhere else in the world is commercialism so little 
felt, nowhere else could one feel more at home in 
viewing and touching exquisite objects, whether with 
the purpose of immediate purchase or to lay plans for 
the happiness of possessing some of them in the future. 

The Artists Guild now occupies ground floor gal- 
leries in the Fine Arts building in Michigan Boulevard, 
a situation accessible and beautiful. The name of The 
Fine Arts Shop of Chicago, under which the organiza- 
tion was formulated, is giving way to the more appro- 
priate title of The Artists Guild. The Fine Arts Shop 
and The Artists Guild have always been identical. 

A study of this annual will reveal familiar and 
famous names and reproductions that are splendid 
reminders in monochrome of the originals which you 
may see any day at The Artists Guild Galleries. The 
book is designed to be an Art treasure in itself and is 
intended for those who will preserve it in their libra- 
ries, not only for use as a purchasing guide, but for the 
actual enjoyment of its pages.

The Fine Arts Building Prize 

The owners of The Fine Arts Building offer to the mem- 
bers of The Artists Guild the sum of five hundred dollars 
annually, being the fund established in 1906 for "The Fine 
Arts Building Prize" and heretofore given to the Exhibitions 
of The Society of Western Artists. This amount will be 
divided into five prizes of one hundred dollars, one prize for 
each of five exhibitions to be given during the season by the 
Guild. These prizes are to be awarded for the most merito- 
rious and important exhibit made by the artists or craft 
workers, according to the decision of a jury; the jury for 
paintings to be selected by a majority vote of painter mem- 
bers, and the jury for craft workers to be in like manner 
selected by a majority vote of craft workers. Special exhibi- 
tions of paintings and craft workers will not be held at the 
same time.

Our Traveling, Collections 

HTHE ARTISTS GUILD has solved the problem involving 
"^ expense for which there is no return that has con- 
fronted smaller towns seeking painting exhibitions. Many 
have been deprived of the pleasure of having exhibitions on 
account of the funds that seem necessary to finance such a 
project. Why squander large sums of money for express 
charges, insurance, etc., which is an absolute loss, when The 
Artists Guild will supply the same quality of exhibition, with 
the additional advantage of the collection being accompanied 
by a representative who is thoroughly posted on American 
Art? Instead of requesting you to incur the expense of trans- 
portation and insurance, our method allows you to select 
pictures for the equivalent amount, so that you have value 

One of our methods of reducing expense is that our paint- 
ings are brought in a matted form, with wide canvas-covered 
gilded mats, which present the paintings to a good advan- 
tage, the uniformity of the mats making a very effective 

The Artists Guild in sending out collections of paintings 
to towns throughout the country, and especially the Middle 
West, has been instrumental in organizing many Art asso- 

One of our principal objects is to encourage interest in 
Art and to assist each town to acquire paintings so that they 
will eventually have their own permanent collections. 

We will, upon request, be pleased to furnish information 
in detail. Please explain local conditions and efforts that 
have been made in this direction, when asking further particu- 
lars. Our exhibition schedules are now being arranged, so 
application should be sent at once if we are to include your 

town in our itinerary.

Why Not Patronize 
American Artists? 

TT IS A VERY NOTICEABLE FACT that the foreign 
name and foreign subject are not as necessary as formerly 
to the purchaser of works of Art. It has taken a long time 
to convince the American that the home producer in Art had 
any value whatever. The great International Expositions 
have been the indices of our progress and development, for 
we were then put into direct competition with the artists of 
the old world. 

In Philadelphia in 1876 we made our first important bid 
for international recognition. In Paris in 1889 the United 
States section was very creditable indeed, but the criticism 
was general that we were not original, but reflected the art 
of France chiefly. The Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 
1893 was a great advance over Paris. It demonstrated that 
since 1876 the United States had made phenomenal progress, 
and while the European Americans were still important, the 
home group were doing what they could to stamp our Art 
with a national flavor. The year 1900 marked another period 
progress for us in Paris. The United States section for the 
first time in Europe demonstrated our growing independence, 
and now in 1915 in San Francisco without mentioning 
further the exhibitions at Omaha, Buffalo and St. Louis the 
statement may be safely made that we are expressing our- 
selves in a most individual if not an essentially national 
fashion. Certainly we are not copying the traditions and 
schools of France. The European Americans were fewer 
than ever before, and while Mr. Frieseke, a Paris resident, 
carried off the highest honors, the number of the honors and 
the mass and quality of the United States section is due to 
the home guard. 

The Artists Guild was formed not to antagonize the 
dealers, but primarily to take care of local conditions and to 
enlarge our functions nationally. We needed in Chicago a 
permanent gallery and a headquarters for exhibition for our 
products and a market where our friends and patrons could 
conveniently co-operate. 

It is a success. Here the interested public may see or 
connect itself with a large body of Art workers in all 
branches. This is a Chicago enterprise, having friends and 
no enemies. We are working collectively to advance our 
national Art. The Artists Guild is on a strictly business basis. 
One is free here to look about. It is not a studio; it is a 
place of business. You need its help and it needs yours. 
The Fine Arts Building was unique in America, in giving a 
home to the Arts, and we are on the ground floor. See 
American Art first!

Probably the most interesting works of Mr. Fournier are 
his paintings of "The Haunts and Homes of the Barbizon 
Masters." He has lived long at Barbizon and has been a 
welcome guest in the homes of these masters. From Fran- 
cois Millet, son of Millet, with whom Fournier formed an 
intimate friendship, he learned much concerning the life of 
his famous father and of the doings and sayings of that bril- 
liant coterie of artists, the men of 1830. It is with these 
"Reminiscences of Barbison" that Mr. Fournier has delighted 
many audiences, as the talk is full of interesting experiences 
and numerous sidelights on these famous painters.

The Artists Guild as a Permanent Institution 

'"THE rapidly growing appreciation of the general public 
for the finer and better things in art, especially along craft 
lines, emphasizes distinctly the fact that you "can't fool all 
of the people all of the time." In the early days of the 
so-called Arts and Crafts movement, much that lacked merit 
from any other point of view than some originality of design 
was exploited and the public requested to accept it as the last 
word in craft production; amateurs with no knowledge of 
the technical processes peculiar to the several lines of craft 
endeavor, aspired to attempted results quite beyond their 
capacity and understanding, and delivered as a finished prod- 
uct work that bore the stamp of crudity predominant. 

To the credit of many of them it has been gratifying to 
note their loyalty to ideals by schooling themselves in the 
arduous paths of technique under the tutelage of schooled 
masters, and while many "dropped by the wayside," the 
demonstration of the survival of the fittest is complete. 
Today many earnest workers are engaged in producing things 
of a high order of workmanship and design and the confi- 
dence of the public is restored somewhat as a consequence. 
Satisfactory evidence of this is seen in the growing popu- 
larity and success of The Artists Guild, whose entire stock 

Page Sixty 


is supplied by Artists and Craft Workers from every section 
of the country and displayed for sale only after passing the 
careful scrutiny of a selected and competent jury. As a 
consequence those whose lives have given them few oppor- 
tunities to acquaint themselves with art ideals have learned 
that here a selection may be made with no other requisite 
than its pleasing effects individually, the responsibility of its 
artistic merit and qualitv of material and workmanship having 
been assumed and vouched for by The Artists Guild. The 
Artists Guild, in addition to supporting a salesroom and gal- 
lery of paintings, sculpture, and the crafts, all of the highest 
order, serves the individual further, after learning of his 
needs, by recommending and introducing just the particular 
Artist or Craftsman whose specialty it is, thereby allowing 
the buyer and worker to come into harmonious relations to 
their mutual profit and satisfaction. 

The writer predicts a great future for The Artists Guild, 
not alone because it supplies the public's needs, but because 
its foundation is built on merit and its administration carried 
on with extreme courtesy.

THE mere word "print" covers a good many fields, as 
illustrated among the possessions of a print collector, 
where there may be included wood blocks, lithographs, line 
etchings, color etchings, and engravings. I shall state briefly 
the method in the making of etchings and colored prints on 
metal plates. It is wonderful when we realize that for the 
past four centuries artists have chosen this mode of expres- 
sion, limited only to the use of black and white, no two proofs 
exactly the same, yet printed from the same plate by the 
same hand. The value of an etching is usually governed by 
the edition which is limited to a certain number of proofs. 

Now let us etch a plate. We have a piece of copper 
highly polished, which surface we cover with what we call 
"ground" nothing more than white wax and asphaltum. 
After a very thin coating of this is laid upon the surface of 
the plate we are ready to make our sketch upon it. With 
our subject before us, and the joy of our work in our heart, 
we proceed to lay bare the copper where we have drawn 
through the ground. When the drawing is complete we are 
ready to etch, after having protected the back of our plate and 
placed it in an acid bath, allowing the acid to attack the lines 
in various degrees. The deeper the line the more ink it holds, 
and consequently revealing darker tones. When this process 
is completed we begin the printing. The plate is cleaned, its 
lines are filled with ink, and the surface cleaned with the 
palm of the hand and rags. We place this on the bed of the 
press, put onto our plate the paper, which has been dampened, 
cover it with a blanket and run it through. Now remove the 
paper and we have an exact reproduction of the design which 
we drew upon the plate. 

Color etchings are printed in the same way. The plates 
are manipulated, however, in somewhat different manner. 
The plate is made to hold ink by roughening its surface, of 
which there are several methods. The dust box is employed, 
an air-tight box which contains a little powdered rosin. The 
rosin is disturbed with a bellows and the plate is inserted into 
the box, allowing the particles of rosin to settle upon its 
surface in a very fine dust When the plate is heated these 
particles adhere to it. After the design is drawn it is etched 
as in the case of the line etchings; that is, in various degrees 
according to the depth of the tone desired. The less we 
etch the more smooth the metal remains, thereby yielding a 
lighter tone of color. Some artists use more than one plate 
a plate to carry each color. However, this has no bearing 
upon the quality of the print, which of course lies entirely 
with the artist's ability to produce a beautiful color harmony. 
Our libraries are filled with handsomely illustrated volumes 
upon the subject. L.O.GRIFFITH.

Block Prints 

HTHE BLOCK COLOR PRINT as we know it today is a 
^ comparatively recent development out of an Art that can 
be traced back to the Middle Ages. The actual method of 
producing block color prints is a simple one and differs little 
from that employed centuries ago. 

A well-seasoned piece of cherry or pear wood is used. 
After preparing the surface, the picture to be cut can either 
be pasted on or drawn on the block directly, which latter 
method the writer prefers. A sharp knife or V-shaped tool 
is used to cut around the drawing; a gouge can then be used 
to remove the surplus wood until the drawing is in relief 
from the rest of the block. This is repeated for each addi- 
tional color. Care must be taken that they register, the one 
over the other, and in choosing colors it is necessary to 
know what effect overlapping will have. One must delight 
in the sharpening of tools and guiding them dexterously 
through the wood perhaps deriving a boyish pleasure from 
seeing the chips fly. One should enjoy the "feel" of beautiful 
paper, in itself a work of artistic craftsmanship and made to 
last centuries. 

The color must be mixed and applied to the block before 
the slightly dampened paper is laid on. Here precision is 
added to dexterity, as a shift of a thirty-second of an inch 
will spoil the register of all following colors. As with a 
goodly portion of all our endeavors, some of the prints land 
in the discard; out of the rest an edition of fifty or a hundred, 
depending on size and subject, is selected. The balance are 
destroyed and the blocks defaced, thus insuring a limited 

Most of the well-known makers of prints are painters 
who use the brush and graver or needle with equal facility, 
putting perhaps a trifle more spontaneity and whim into their 
prints. The writer has in mind Nicholson of England, Orlik 
of Austria, and Riviere of France. In their work we find the 
directness of the early European, combined with the rich 
color quality of the Oriental, or, more correctly, Japanese 
print, but at all times their work is a consistent part of their 

We certainly have in our country a wealth of material, 
from the rush and energy of the city to the peace and quiet 
of the country, with all the various moods of the seashore, 
plain and mountain. To note and preserve these in a medium 
best suited to his temperament is the mission of the painter 
of pictures and the maker of prints.

A GOOD many may have heard of it, but few are really 
** acquainted with it. Brown County is a little world by 
itself; to be true, not quite so sophisticated as you might 
expect, but containing people with hopes, ambitions, joys and 
sorrows a good deal like everybody else. There is no need 
to go back to nature, no call for the simple life; it is all there, 
pure and unadulterated. 

Mr. Baumann says: "Is it a wonder that the subtle charm 
of such a place should appeal to our cave and cliff dwelling 
artists of the larger cities?" He is among those who have 
settled there and established studios. 

Mr. Baumann has been producing block color prints that 
echo the quaint simplicity of the locality. There is a charm 
in the method and a joy in the finished work, from the artistic 
conception to the final touch of color on the print. To know 
these prints is to know Brown County.

Book -Plates 

"those charming personalities that we find affixed 
within the covers of books by their owners " 

THE BOOKLOVER makes of his books intimate compan- 
ions. Each volume, while usually only one of a number 
of the same kind, holds an individual charm to be cherished 
by the owner. To designate this association, also to guard 
against loss, or the carelessness of the chronic borrower who 
is quite apt to overlook the ownership of the transient books 
on his shelves, each book is marked or labeled. 

For some book owners the simple method of entering the 
name in handwriting, of more or less beauty and legibility, 
somewhere on or in the book, suffices. Others, desiring to 
express more clearly this personal association, and having 
perhaps an idea of embellishing the volume, which if worth 
preserving is worthy of a little extra care, are pleased to affix 
a distinctive name-label, the book-plate or ex-libris. 

Over four centuries ago, along with the invention of 
moveable types which made the printed book possible, the 
book-plate, as we know it, came into use. The early printer, 
taking great pride in his productions, generally marked his 
books with a very personal device, which may be said to be 
the forerunner of the printed or engraved book-mark. In 
manuscript books ownership was proclaimed by the introduc- 
tion of coats of arms, initials and emblems into the page 

"The hypothesis," says Egerton Castle, "that what is 
now meant, broadly speaking, by an ex-libris is as old as 
the book itself would perhaps not be too bold a one to 

Almost all the earlier book-plate designs were heraldic in 
character, with little or no ornamentation added to the coats 
of arms. Later other features books, interiors, landscapes, 
portraits, symbols, etc. asserted themselves either in promi- 
nence or as accessories to the escutcheon, the design always 
conforming to the style of its particular period. 

The modern designer of ex-libris need not be hampered 
by style. His pen, guided by good taste, may follow the 
fancy of the owner, and being so guided his pen may go 
wherever it is necessary to express the owner's personality. 
He may desire to incorporate in his plate design a familiar 
landscape, or a bit of architecture, a tree, some intimate nook 
of his house, a portrait, or perhaps some symbol or crest. 

While it is interesting to study the past styles and profit 
by their suggestions, what has been done in the designing of 
book-plates should not influence the prospective owner of the 
plate, for the chief pleasure in the design lies in its person- 
ality, presented in an original and appropriate manner.

Art for Reproduction 

THE DEMAND for pictures and designs for repro- 
ductions has greatly increased in recent years. 
Heretofore a few "cuts" were found sufficient; now 
elaborate pictorial and decorative publications are 

This interesting result has been made possible by 
the advancement in the art of printing, which enables 
us to reproduce almost everything very satisfactorily. 
The printed sheet now retains the charm of the original 
picture, the subtle tones, color harmony and atmos- 
phere of the painting being reproduced with a fidelity 
that is quite remarkable. 

As the possibilities grow, greater care and taste is 
also being displayed in the selection of paintings and 
designs, and much that is truly art is seen. The far- 
sighted buyer realizes that his public is appreciative of 
the artistic results of his discrimination. It is now not 
uncommon to find the names of artists of national rep- 
utation signed to the printed picture or design, which 
is indeed gratifying, since it graphically demonstrates 
that their work is not alone for the pleasure of the art 
collector and gallery visitor. 

The Artists Guild has among its members men and 
women who, besides being trained in the requirements 
of reproduction, produce work of artistic taste and 
merit specialists in almost every field. The Artists 
Guild thus affords an ideal opportunity to obtain those 
results which we hope will eventually raise to a high 
standard all pictorial printing.

Character in Jewelry 

TX7"HILE the average person knows his needs in the realm 
** of creature comforts from a standpoint of utility, few 
give sufficient thought to the details which go to make up 
the total of completeness which constitutes harmony and 
whose mission Art in every branch humbly serves; especially 
noticeable in this particular is the selection of jewelry for 
gifts and personal adornment. In too many instances those 
who give little thought to such matters are attracted by the 
glitter of a bauble without regard to its especial fitness for 
the wearer, overlooking, in their eagerness to please, the most 
important factor of dress, for jewelry is a part of the costume 
and should be in harmony with it to the same degree as a 
hat or a pair of shoes. Prior to the advent of machinery 
jewelry of any importance was designed and made expressly 
for the one whose person it was meant to adorn, and in such 
instances great care was given to detail and thought in its 
execution. With duplication came the machine, with its 
unfeeling and uninteresting qualities, until up to a few years 
ago jewelry became a matter of costly merchandise only, and 
its dispensers were neither more nor less than merchants. 
But the one thing the machine could never do in producing 
jewelry was the thing it has never been able to do in any of 
the arts, ic; supply a texture in keeping with the subject. 
The public has awakened to this fact and today are giving 
employment to great numbers of worthy craftsmen who work, 
it is true, with a hope of profit, but whose chief aim is to 
produce harmonious effects, combining good art with utility 
of purpose. The stores are full of costly things, mostly 
ornate and garish, the product of factories where the work 
is passed along from one specialist to another to its comple- 
tion, resulting in something as utterly incapable of expression 
of feeling as the product of a machine of wheels and dies. 
While many of the things so produced are labeled "hand- 
work," they fail in their mission as truly as a group of paint- 
ers would fail in attempting to put upon canvass by combined 
efforts a landscape or a portrait. To be successful a p/ece of 
jewelry must he wrought out in its entirety bu the one n?/io design* it Any 
other method defeats the best results by the conflict of 
different ideals and interpretations held by the several per- 
sonalities through whose hands it passes. The true and 
honest purpose of Art is thus sacrificed to economy of pro- 
duction and no advantage is gained over the so-called store 
jewelry other than perhaps some originality of design, which 
in itself is not sufficient when the wearer is to be taken into 
consideration. The true craftsman loves his Art and the 
force of his personality is always evident in his work.

Hand- Wrought Silver 

"LIAND-WROUGHT SILVER is the product of an art 
** immemorially old. It is, however, little understood. A 
piece of silver showing hammer marks is not necessarily 
made by hand. 

A hand-wrought silver piece is one which is "formed up" 
entirely by hand from flat "Sterling" of a suitable thickness. 
This silver is obtained from a refiner who has melted the raw 
silver, refined it to 925/1000 pure, and rolled it into sheets. 
The "forming up" is done over either wooden or metal stakes 
with wooden mallets and requires an accurate eye and a 
steady hammer blow. The silver is not hammered over or 
into metal forms the size of the object being made, as is 
sometimes supposed. 

After the piece is formed the final finishing is done with 
a planishing hammer over a metal stake, both of which must 
be highly polished and without any flaw on the surfaces. 
Scratches or marks of any kind on a finished piece indicate 
rough tools or bad hammering. The planishing causes the 
hammer marks. These marks should be flat and fairly sym- 
metrical A good, steady blow is necessary, so there will be 
no unevenness While the hammer marks should be fairly 
symmetrical, they should not show in even rows. They 
should, however, overlap one another, leaving no unplanished 

Machine-made silver is either stamped out by heavy power 
punches or spun into shape over forms in a common machin- 
ist's lathe, and is usually highly polished. Some of it, how- 
ever, is planished to give it the appearance of being hand- 

Inasmuch as the most expensive part of the work is done 
by the machine, it costs much less to produce this silver, 
as the original forms are spun up or stamped out in large 

It is almost impossible to duplicate hand-wrought pieces, 
whereas in machine work thousands can be made from one 

It should be borne in mind that in order to properly finish 
a piece of hand-wrought silver it must be planished, whereas 
in the machine-made pieces the planishing may be added to 
give the appearance of being hand-wrought. 

Also, the machine has its limitations, and when a design 
is made for this kind of silver it must conform to these limita- 
tions. Not so with the hand-wrought work; the artist crafts- 
man can make such designs as he wishes, knowing that by 
the skill of his hand he can form the piece into the thing he 
desires to create. 

These objects possess greater artistic merit, hence the 
value of hand-wrought work.

HP O A mark of quality in jewelry and silver, is represented

is entirely hand wrought and of original design. A showing 

of many interesting novelties

Today as people are seeking the 
better along the lines of art, they 
are recognizing the superiority 
of the hand-made article over 
the one machine made. This is 
particularly true in the case of 
hand-wrought silver, and with 

good reason. A piece of work, be it a simple spoon or 

a large water pitcher made by hand, requires the use of 

heavier metal than one stamped out by a machine, with the 

result that you have a very much 

more durable piece. There are 

not numerous intricate details in 

design, which invariably collect 

dirt, etc., making it a difficult task 

to keep clean. In selecting golf 

prizes, wedding gifts and trophies 

we suggest combining the practi- 

cal with the artistic, such as water 

pitchers, large salad bowls, flower 

vases, trays or a choice of innu- 

merable other things equally de-

TN THE DECORATION of the home copper has its appro- 
priate place among the various materials used in the 
expression of art. It enters into the make-up of all the 
principal alloys such as sterling, bronze, brass, etc. There 
is something about copper which makes it susceptible to 
surface changes when acted upon by the atmosphere, chem- 
icals and temperature changes which gives the art craftsman 
a wide range in obtaining color effects. It is the skillful 
control of this "tarnish," whether natural or artificial, which 
gives the worker many opportunities. This in connection 
with the beautiful surfaces obtainable under the action of the 
hammer is frequently all that is required in the production of 
interesting articles of art without the necessity of additional 
decorative designs. 

In the mechanical decorative designs it yields most readily 
to the tools employed, becoming extremely soft under the 
annealing flame, and, on the other hand, as hard and strong 
as the other metals when hammered. Thus it becomes pos- 
sible to form the metal into the most difficult shapes. 

Age improves the appearance of oxidized copper if prop- 
erly cared for, provided it was given the proper start. Bright 
copper, of course, requires protection by means of lacquer 
or wax finish. This is true also of certain special finishes. 
As a rule the oxidized surface obtained by means of heat 
treatment is more permanent, being a true oxide and one that 
will improve with age if kept well rubbed to prevent accu- 
mulation of dust and moisture. Oxidized copper should not 
be washed or scrubbed, but just rubbed often with a soft, dry 
cloth to a polish, much the same as the treatment given to 
nice old mahogany. 

Since copper is the most beautiful, durable and workable 
of the less expensive metals, there is no reason why it should 
not become more commonly used in the decoration of the 
home for ornamental and useful utensils, vases, fireplaces, 
metal trim, lamps and lighting fixtures. 

What harmonizes more beautifully with the tapestries, 
oriental rugs and nice furniture than copper, either in its 
natural color or toned down to meet the requirements of the 

interior scheme?

Decorated Porcelain and China 

HTHE CHINA PAINTER'S CRAFT has made a decided 
* progress in recent years. It has developed from the 
mistaken idea of beauty in a wild profusion of floral embel- 
lishments to a thoroughly masterly way of handling the 
decoration of porcelain and china with careful regard for 
shape, color, harmony and design. 

In modern lustre a revival of the old art an unlimited 
range of color can be obtained from the most shell-like 
effects to the richest tones. There is no medium in which 
the variety of tints and irridescent hues can be so successfully 
reproduced as with the application of lustre on porcelain or 
china. The various pieces on exhibition at The Artists Guild 
Galleries show the vast contrast between the average deco- 
rated porcelain and the excellence attained by our many 
painters. The selections include some porcelain and china 
in almost every form, even to the extent of suggestions for 
complete sets of tableware.

Chocolate Pot 

TWTISS MIDDLETON'S work in enamel on porcelain is 
distinctive for its unusual design and beautiful combi- 
nation of color. Her long experience in this field has made 
for her an enviable reputation, both as teacher and decorator 
of porcelain and china. Of especial charm are service plates 
and lamp bases. The latter executed in delicate pastel shades 
on satsuma are a delight to the beholder and may be made in 
any scheme of color to harmonize with the furnishings. The 
chocolate pot as shown above is one of the many examples 
that are included in exhibits of Miss Middleton's work that 
may be found on exhibition at The Artists Guild Galleries. 
This well-assorted selection includes many specimens of Miss 
Middleton's rare ability in design and workmanship, and also 
offers many suggestions for special order work in which she 
specializes. Instructions given.

DorcKester Glass and Lustre Ware 


Tea Set Dark Blue Lustre 

^ COMER has been 
extremely successful 
in an entirely new 
and original branch of 
craft work, which is 
known as Dorchester 
Glass. Its transpar- 
ency and exquisite 
coloring, in addition to the well-selected shapes with espe- 
cially beautiful lines, produced in gray blue irridescent and 
limpid gold qualities, strikes rather a new note It is quite 
wonderful to think of such things being made in this country. 
Dorchester Glass gives one rather a new version concerning 
the potentialities of home products. The illustration herewith 
shown of decanter and high cordial glasses is only intended 
as a suggestion for form, it being entirely impossible to sug- 
gest anything in the way of coloring. In addition to the 
high cordial glasses and decanter, we have on exhibition low 
cordial sets, wine glasses, frappe glasses, lemonade glasses, 
goblets, dessert glasses, sherbet glasses, candlesticks, bonbon 
dishes, nut dishes, bowls, sugars and creamers, sweet pea 
vases, single flower vases, bud vases, favors, and numerous 
other things used for table service. The Chocolate Set illus- 
trated herewith is 
not produced in Dor- 
chester Glass, but 
is of a porcelain to 
which is applied the 
lustre treatment in 
their many different 
colors and color 
combinations, as set

TN addition to the exquisitely 
colored glass mentioned on the 
previous page Sarah Ryel Comer 
produces on porcelain the most 
fascinating colors, together with 
a delicacy of tone which suggests 
fragility and lightness. A won- 
derful color sense has enabled her 
to execute pieces of such exqui- 
siteness and variety, that any 
scheme of decoration can be com- 
pleted from the selection. They 
are in colors which indeed do 
satisfy and are really too lovely to describe. The flower 
bowls, which are very much in demand at present, are in 
various shapes and sizes in combinations of color dark 
blue, light blue, yellow with amber color inside, delicately 
colored pink with opalescent lining. There is no limit to the 
number of shapes and color effects that can be produced. 
Anything that can be obtained in white china can be treated 
in this manner. From the flower bowls one's attention is 
drawn to the two-color combinations in tableware, each more 
charming than the last in color and shape. Blue combined 
with ivory or cream-yellow, deep and light, a wonderful light 
green and cream, dark blue with a reflection of lavender 
shading into pink, and many other similar effects. Sarah 
Ryel Comer is a member of the Society of Arts and Crafts 
of Boston, who conferred upon her the degree of Master 

Craftsman at a gen-

account of the charm of form and shades of color in which 
it can be produced. Even in the texture of the ware is an 
effect adaptable to the present day of treatment of home

Decorated Leather 

"TVECORATED LEATHER is one of the crafts which 
^"^ attains a high degree of excellence, and has beauty as 
well as serviceability to recommend it. When we add to its 
decorative qualities its durability and adaptability we feel 
that there is a justifiable reason for the favor in which leather 
has been held ever since the days when the skins of beasts 
filled such an important place in the wardrobe of our very 
early ancestors. 

Just when the skins were shorn of hair, thus lending them- 
selves to decoration in many ways, we do not know. The 
Crusaders brought back with them leather ornamented with 
precious stones and metals about the eighth century, and 
Europe set itself to imitate this art of working in leather, 
finding purest models in Spain, then occupied by the Moors. 

For several centuries the art of decorating leather remained 
the specialty of Spain, though soon other countries were doing 
better work than imitating the celebrated manufacturers of 
Cordova, Spain. 

Venice developed modeled leathers. Germany discovered 
it to be an ideal material for rendering the mantels and 
plumed helmets of heraldry, while the carved and embossed 
leathers in the Vijon Museum are examples of the leather 
work of the great decorative school of the Court of Burgundy. 

In the eleventh century we come to the first employment 
of gold leaf upon leather, and with its introduction leather 
decoration assumed an importance before unknown. 

Brilliant oil paints in connection with gold and silver made 
a more gorgeous decoration for wall hangings, screens, 
chests, etc., than would be desirable today, but its adaptability 
is one of its charms and we now design and decorate leather 
to harmonize with the present surroundings. Your wall 
panels may carry out the type of your architecture; a screen, 
desk set, table cover, or chest, may be made to harmonize 
with the period of design of furniture. Choice chair frames 
may have leather decorated to cover them, valuable books 
may be bound or rebound, or any work of this nature may 
be executed in an individual manner with originality and good

Interior Decoration and Design 

THAT A KNOWLEDGE of decoration and design 
is one of the most desirable fields of cultivation 
for the public as well as the individual, is beyond con- 
troversy, though few have the time or opportunity for 
such education. 

The skillful decorator possesses knowledge of the 
relative value of architecture, sculpture, painting and 
the various crafts to use in assembling these different 
arts into a pleasing composition. The interior, be it 
that of a home, club, school, hotel, or even a shop, 
should be well considered, and the wise layman, 
recognizing his own deficiencies, will proceed to secure 
skilled advice as he would in regard to any specialized 
business where his own experience is not sufficient. 
Let the designer or decorator show the value of his 
useful profession by combining utility and beauty into 
an harmonious whole. A home well planned by an 
architect with whom the decorator works in sympathy, 
is bound to satisfy in every detail. Handsome and 
inexpensive interiors do not alone require such serv- 
ices. The more modest as well should receive their 
share of such consideration. It is in the knowing how 
to treat each individually that the value lies. The 
Artists Guild would impress upon the public the neces- 
sity of employing trained designers and decorators to 
furnish interiors, and urges all who contemplate home 
building or the fitting up of any interiors to come to 
them for help, be it ever so simple or very elaborate. 
The best in the field will be at their services, with the 
assurance that the expense will be in correct propor- 
tion to their problem.

Appropriate Picture Framing 

HPHE FRAMING of a picture is a difficult art, and 
* unless you have made a careful study of it, or 
perhaps as is sometimes the case, you are born with 
an innate taste, in framing as in everything else you 
are obliged to consult someone else regarding the 
proper treatment. 

It is in this direction, after having given the subject 
careful study and with years of experience, that we 
solicit your orders for the framing of pictures. To 
frame a picture correctly, "a frame should be of it, and 
not too much in evidence/' which is the keynote to be 
used to show a picture to the best advantage. You 
may have old prints or paintings with heavy, cumber- 
some or ornamental frames, that so often detract from 
the picture one of the conditions resulting from the 
framing of pictures done at the time when pleasing 
patterns were chosen without regard to picture. Such 
pictures should be reframed in a correct manner, 
considering, of course, the period in which the picture 
was painted. Picture framing of today is given very 
serious thought and the effect for which we strive is 
to show the beauty and charm of the picture. The 
individuality of the family heirlooms would be more 
distinctly pronounced and carefully preserved after 
receiving our skillful treatment. Our prices are ex- 
tremely moderate and we have a large and varied 
assortment of samples from which to select.
