3 gen Harts

House and Garden magazine 1999

“Hart’s is still sited in George’s original studios, in The Old Silk Mill, off Sheep Street not far from the centre of Chipping Campden. Visiting their workshops you find very little has changed. Forty year-old invoices, designs and drawings hand from hooks in the low beamed ceilings. The same wooden workbenches, pitted by years of cuts and knocks, are crowded with wonderfully worn implements, their wooden handles stained and polished with use, and the sound of hand-beating the silver – ‘planishing’ – is the same sound the visitor would have heard a century ago.”
