Some pictures from Das Farbige Ornament aller Historischen Stile by Alexander Speltz, Leipzig, 1915. This has been republished by Dover several times and by Portland House (Putnams) in 1988 as The History of Ornament: Design in the Decorative Arts.
I cannot find born/died dates for the author: the latest listed in the Library of Cnngress catalogue is 1915. However, the images themselves are all much older and are out of cpoyright.
