Neuhoff, Gustav: Flachenverzierung in Historischen Stilarten Sowie in Neuzeitlichem Geschmacke.
Berlin: Paris: New York: Bruno Hessling Buchhandlung fur Architektur und Kunstgewerbe, c1895. Motive fur gewebe, stickereien, tapeten, und decorative malerei. A folio of loose plates of decorative ornament sketched and drawn by Neuhoff, as motifs for fabrics, wallpapers and decorative painting. 41 x 30 cm. 22 of 30 plates present. There are generally about six designs on each plate. An eclectic mix of neo-classical, art-nouveau, arts and craft, and similar, all of the plates are dusty with some edge wear. This type of folio was bought by textile mills, usually linen mills, here in the north of Ireland, for their fabric designers. As the plates are loose in the folio it is difficult to get complete sets of plates. The missing plates in this case are numbers 4, 9, 10, 13, 14, 24, 26, and 30. Neuhoff was an important textile designer around 1900. (Book ref. 9264) £50.00
