Arrowsmith, Henry William / The house decorator and painter's guide; containing a series of designs for decorating apartments, suited to the various styles of architecture
Plate XXXVII-XXXVIII ["Elizabethan ornament"], pp. 76-[Plate XXXVIII] ff.
76 Plate XXXVII. This design is an adaptation of the Elizabethan orn apartment. The style of decoration here represented, has of late become very fashionable, and chiefly from the circumstance that it has required the use of the antique carved furniture which, although so much admired, was before altogether useless or out of place. The ornamental part of the design may be painted in tints, or still better executed in bas-relief; but this cannot always be done without great expense. DETAILS. Plate XXXVIII. Figure 1. Is an angle ornament suited for the design in Plate XXXIX., but of a more elaborate character than that represented in the drawing. Figure 2. Is a design for a centre ornament. The introduction of these ornaments will give an opportunity of forming another design, and the ingenious draftsman will find no difficulty in multi- plying the varieties to suit the taste of the employer.
