Scope and Content

The material consists of correspondence between Armitage and the Hermann Noack foundry in Berlin, plus invoices, draft copies of letters, notes, and other papers. The correspondence concerns the casting of works by Armitage, and discusses details of casting, as well as related issues including shipping and the display of the works. Many of Armitage's letters are illustrated with sketches of his works, showing details of their construction or installation. A few are in colour, to illustrate the desired patina.
