Crittall plays a large and influential part in Essex history, something which we are proud of and like to celebrate. From January 26th – April 20th, Braintree Museum will be exhibiting original iron portraits, painted in the 1920’s from up and coming artists.

Braintree Museum has long held some of Crittall’s oldest archived material including drawings, merchandise, literature and product samples, and is offering a never before seen collection of material, displayed together as one exhibition.

Polly Redman, a member of the Braintree Museum Marketing Team said: “The exhibition is a unique opportunity to view portraits of past employees of Crittall Windows painted by rising artists of the 1920s, exhibited together for the first time in 90 years. It is a wonderful social snapshot of a time gone by. Seeing and hearing the interaction between visitors reminiscing about their time working for Crittalls, affectionately remembering a family member in one of the portraits and children during half term carefully inspecting the faces and their features has been wonderful.”
