The English Arts & Crafts silver bowl with turquoise and orange stone accents is in the style of Archibald Knox. The pewter candlestick is early 20th-century Dutch. Both were gifts from my husband, found at an antique shop in Broadway, England.
This shop is typical of the architecture in Broadway, England. The village is renowned for its charming buildings and quaint shops. The Broadway Tower just outside the village is a castle-like folly. The tower was inspired by Capability Brown, who designed the gardens at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock. Built high on a hill, the Broadway Tower affords a breathtaking view of The Cotswolds.
Once horses' stables, this ivy-covered stone building in Broadway is now a private apartment.
Leaves reminiscent of the Arts & Crafts period are carved on a pew in Worcester Cathedral, Worcester, England.
This detailed leaf design was hand-carved on several wooden benches at Worcester Cathedral.
