Hello, My name is Hugh Little. I buy and sell Art nouveau and Deco
prints, Posters art and Advertising.
Recently I purchased a number of stunning designs for stained glass
windows. The approx. dates would be somewhere between 1900 - 1930. I
believe most of the work was done in England. So far I have found only
one reference to their origin. One of the smaller cartoons has the
stamp," Property of James Powell and Sons. Whitefriars ltd. 100 wigmore
All are original designs in gouche, pencil watercolour etc. The great
majority have pencil notoations in the margins explaining the intended
church, placement etc. They are as small as 4" x 2" up to 3' x 7 ft.
Some are designs for American Churches.
If there is a relatively informed person(s) out there I would
appreciated any help that can be offered in regards to their origin etc.
If anyone is interested in purchasing one, don't hesitate to contact me.
The decorators around here ( Toronto ) are going wild!
