Nicholas Goodison revisits his earlier exhaustive study of Boulton's ormolu ornaments and his manufactory at Soho, and unearths new and previously unpublished material. This book covers the factory between the years 1768 and 1782, the methods by which ornaments were designed, made and marketed, and Boulton's own keen interest in promoting the business. It is a comprehensive account of the range of vases, candelabra, clock cases and other ormolu ornaments and of the customers who bought them. The author has once again combined meticulous research with a narrative style that makes the book a pleasure to read. Most of the photographs have been taken especially for this study, and the ornaments are described and illustrated in greater detail and in larger numbers than ever before.
