VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM 1909
(single doorway bookend)

This detailed bookend has a great story and strong design and has always been popular. The complex entrance includes the statues of Queen Victoria above and Prince Albert below. The museum of decorative art and design was first opened to the public in 1852 following the success of London's Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace.

The Victorians were obsessed with improving the empire and felt a need to lead the world in all things including the drive for better industrial design and the Victoria and Albert Museum was designed as a huge storehouse of reference and inspiration. See the Royal Ontario model bookend of Toronto, also in this catalogue.
