"Household Art. Objects lent by Morris & Co., London. For sale special importations. 'In speaking of the display of decorative and applied fine art made at the great London International Exposition of 1862, the famous art critic, Wm. M. Rossetti, says: "In this department, the firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. shows an originality and artistic excellence, true at once to decoration and to high art in design of figure, subjects which promise well for the future; and the same may be said of their furniture and other decorative work in the mediaeval court. The reason is, that this firm includes various artists who are content to practice high art in painting or architecture, and to be decorators and beautifiers of furniture, when this is the point in question." Their glass is significant in invention, original and artist-like in design, and simply effective in color, yet almost retiring in comparison with some of their cruder competitors.' - london review, 1862. " 'In speaking of painters whose style qualifies them for monumental work, we must not forget Mr. B.J., to whom the water color society owes it that their exhibition of the present year will count in future record less as the last appearance of our admirable painter, William Hunt, than as the first appearance of another not less admirable.' - Fraser's Magazine, 1864."
