[Louis C. Tiffany] Woman’s Handiwork in Modern Homes.


Important Aesthetic Movement interior design book—for women by a woman—containing the first printed designs of Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848–1933). Two chromolithographic plates show designs by Tiffany: “Interior–Morning Room” and “Doorway and Drapery.” Additional color and black and white plates show designs by John Bennett, Charles Volkmar, Rosina Emmet, Samuel Colman, Dora Wheeler, George Gibson, and others. With sections devoted to embroidery, china painting and other paintwork, and interior decoration and furnishing. Author Constance Cary Harrison (1843–1920) was from a prominent Virginia family and is best remembered for her autobiographical memoir of Civil War Richmond and as the author of numerous plays and novels. More infamously, Harrison and two of her Cary cousins sewed the first three battle flags of the Confederacy.
