The Birmingham Guild of Handicraft (BGH) was set up by master silversmith and architect Arthur Stansfield Dixon in Birmingham in 1890, having been inspired by his friend William Morris and master metalworker and architect Charles Robert Ashbee (founder of the Guild of Handicraft), both leading figures of the British Arts and Crafts Movement. The Birmingham Guild of Handicraft produced fine quality metalware and furniture, equal and if not superior to the work of contemporary W.
Benson, capitalising on the revolutionary development of electricity as a new power source and the subsequent need for new electric light fittings. Arthur Dixon was the chief designer and head of the metalwork workshop, working with other renowned craftsmen Albert Edward Jones and Thomas Birkett.
