LUCIE RIE BUTTONS. A fascinating wartime part of her work.

Post by philpot on July 18th 2018, 5:55 am

A much less wide known part of Lucie Rie's career was her production of buttons for Fritz Lampl  and Bimini. Also under her own aegis she employed assistants.  The link below is to an informative V&A article.

The photos here are from the major Lucie Rie exhibition at York City Art gallery 2018-2019. Nearly all from the vast collection of the almost legendary Bill Ismay. They are quite a surpise.
