Excerpt from Old English Interiors

Noteworthy examples, such as Haddon and Hardwick Halls, Sutton Place, Longleat, Hatfield and Burghley Houses, Ightham Moat and Warwick Castle have been carefully preserved and maintained - as we hope they will be for a long time to come - by their owners and their sucessors, but, for one reason or another, many others have been removed or destroyed. When I became interested in decorative art many years ago, I was impressed by the almost criminal ignorance which resulted in the ruthless sacrifice of work of this description. The housebreaker, for instance, was gifted with so little knowledge, that much valuable material and many models worthy of being placed in our national museums were thrown away or broken up, things beyond price, in the sense that once lost they can never be replaced. Time was when they were so lightly regarded as to be offered me for a few shillings. We have changed all that now, but the models I secured then have now proved to be of inestimable value.
