Ancient, Georgian, Victorian andMoreThis work celebrates Dublins decorative surfaces in ironwork, brickwork, stone, glass, plaster, its fanlights, doors and windows, and more. The city is full of decorative things whose main function is to delight. Ancient, Georgian, Victorian and modern features are all here. At certain periods everything, even the most practical and mundane coal-hole cover or boot scraper, was decorated, leaving a rich heritage on buildings, pavements, walls, roofs, in gardens and interiors. The book also includes the fascinating stories of crafts and craftworkers.
