Details

Japanese lacquer-work was in high demand in 17th-century England, but following difficulties sourcing wares from Japan, English craftsmen began imitating the style, creating a ‘japanning’ industry, which thrived in the 18th and 19th centuries. This is the most comprehensive guide available on the subject; it includes many photographic examples of japanning, detailing its origins, techniques used and life for workers in the industry, with specific chapters on craftsmen in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Bilston.
