BARNETT FREEDMAN

Lyons Tea Rooms Coronation Designs

Date: 1953

2 large sheets, each 61 x 41 inches. A little marginal tearing but with practically no loss. Barnett Freedman had previously worked with J. Lyons and Co., overseeing the production of the fine series of Lyons Lithographs in the 1940s. He was therefore a natural choice when the tea rooms needed a set of uniform designs for their windows to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Intended to be cut up and mounted in the windows as decorative bunting and colour displays these are obviously a rare survival.
