Alphabet of British A&C Metalware

Following on from my Alphabet of British Art Pottery I will try for a complete A to Z from the British Arts and Crafts Movement as applied to metal objects. I will not restrict myself to any date period as the influence of the arts and crafts movement is surprisingly long and well in to the mid 20th century.

For example Keswick School of Industrial Art was established c1884 but continued until the 1980's making hand beaten metal objects. A very long shadow from the bright lights Mr Morris and friends in the 1860's.

I think a few letters will be terribly difficult - X that might be tough.
