Object history note

Although this drawing is stylistically similar to other designs for metal-work and jewellery by Henry Wilson, the architect John D. Sedding, whose Oxford Street office he joined as his chief assistant, was also a designer of jewelled metal work, and Wilson carried through many of Sedding’s designs uncompleted at his death in 1891.
