One of the most important pieces ever produced by the British Arts and Crafts movement is now on display in the National Museum of Scotland. The giant overmantel, by the leading British enameller Alexander Fisher (1864-1936), dates from 1899-1900 and was acquired for £210,000 with a £70,000 grant from The Art Fund (with a contribution from the Wolfson Foundation) and £95,000 from the Lindsay Endowment Fund.
