John Moyr Smith - A Design Source for Home and Decoration

John Moyr Smith, (1839-1912) was one of the most original and idiosyncratic 19th Century designers. His quirky and fantastic designs creating a familiar and stimulating resonance within the viewer's experience, but always retaining an edginess.

On this site I wish to present an overview of his decorative designs, principally represented on ceramics and book illustrations. I would be delighted to receive any information and history relating to Moyr Smith, and would be happy to include details on this site.

I have many original tiles and items designed by John Moyr-Smith for sale, and am interested in purchasing similar items. We offer a listing and search facility for dealers and collectors. Please email for further details and information.

This site would not have been possible without the guidance, co-operation and assistance of Annamarie Stapleton, the world's foremost authority, and author of 'John Moyr Smith: A Victorian Designer', published by Richard Dennis.
