Francis Skidmore died in 1896 and as there is a design dated '11.10.99' in the album and the style is later than those designs made in his lifetime it could not be by him. In 1872, Skidmore's Art Manufactures and Constructive Ironwork Company went into liquidation and was taken over by Winfields Ltd of Birmingham.
