    Roman antiquities, Giovanni Battista Piranesi published c1807

    Born in Mogliano close to Venice, Piranesi, although trained as an architect became famous as an engraver, and archaeologist. Moving in 1740 to Rome, a lack of architectural commissions led him to develop etching skills and collaborating with pupils of the French Academy in Rome he produced a series of views of the city. These early works, Prima parte di Architettura e Prospettive (1743), followed in 1745 by Varie Vedute di Roma Antica e Moderna were produced during the era of the Grand Tour; when noblemen in the 18th century, completed their education with a period of European travel. This so-called Grand Tour could last from a few months to many years. At this time most ancient monuments in Rome were abandoned in fields and gardens. Piranesi's precise observational skills allowed him to preserve them in some way with his engravings. A third of the monuments in Piranesi's engravings have now disappeared, and many had the stucco and surfacing stolen. With the publication in 1756 of Le Antichità Romane there was immediate international success and Piranesi was elected a member of the Society of Antiquaries in London in 1757. The etchings, with their combination of technical skill, historical accuracy and artistic vision, Robert Adam observed, "he alone might be said to breath the Antient Air."

    Brunswick lace panel

    Handloom weaving was brought to the Irvine Valley, Scotland, in the late 16th century. The craft of lace making was later introduced to the area in 1876 followed shortly by the invention of the power loom in 1877. Lace and Madras weaving continued to flourish there until the late 1970s. The struggle for companies to compete with the distribution of emerging European and Asian economies had a profound effect on the Scottish textile industry. Fortunately these patterned lace panels continue to be woven in Scotland on some of the last remaining Nottingham lace looms in the world. The manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive; the looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control. LASSCO has been working closely with the weavers to develop a unique collection of lace panels. These patterns were selected for use in, and especially woven for, the Saloon at Brunswick House, the 1758 Georgian Vauxhall home of the Duke of Brunswick that is now the LASSCO 'flagship'. With authentic Gainsborough patterns appropriately reminiscent of the Vauxhall Gardens style, the lower edges are worked in embroidered scallops. Currently two in stock.
