Image Furniture, Fraud and Fakery with Peter Lindfield

Peter Lindfield has published widely on Georgian Gothic architecture and design broadly conceived, as well as heraldry and the relevance of heraldic arts to post-medieval English intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic culture.

During Gothic Manchester Festival 2019, he co-organised an event at Chetham’s Library titled ‘Faking Gothic Furniture’. This involved discussing the mysterious George Shaw (1810-76), a local Uppermill lad who developed an early interest in medieval architecture and heraldry, going on to create forgeries of Tudor and Elizabethan furniture for a number of high-profile individuals and institutions at the time, including Chetham’s!

Peter will be presenting a talk on our Youtube channel on Thursday 10th June at 6pm, as part of Manchester’s Festival of Libraries.
