Some examples of the Guild's
work held in the collections of Worcestershire
The Bromsgrove Guild began in the late
19th century as an Arts & Crafts movement group. They
manufactured objects in many media - metal, wood, plaster, bronze,
tapestry and glass. The Guild survived until the early 1960s - far
longer than other Arts & Crafts companies such as that of
William Morris. The Guild's influence was widespread; one of their
members was lost en route to the USA sailing on the ill-fated RMS
Titanic. Perhaps the Guild's most famous objects - certainly those
most seen by the public - are the main gates of Buckingham
These panels are now set into the
windows of the County Museum's rear staircase.
Examples of Bromsgrove Guild stained
glass can still be in seen in their original locations, many in
churches throughout England.
