10989 Indian / Hindu Figure
QTY: 1 £1,950


Category: Figures

QTY: 1

This delicately carved stone statue has been catching our eye ever since it arrived in the yard!  The intricate detailing, all carved from a single piece of stone, shows a high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail.  Purportedly the female figure is the Hindu goddess Parvati; the goddess of love, devotion and divine strength / power, and looks to be holding the chakram (a form of discus) which is associated with the goddess, as are the flowers and trees in the arched backdrop.  The cow licking her feet demonstrates the ultimate sign of respect and admiration.  Parvati is usually represented as fair and benevolent, a fine example to us all!

QTY: 29 £30 Each


Category: Vintage

QTY: 29

A fascinating selection of original Picture Post photojournalistic magazines, published between 1938 and 1957.  Picture Post was a popular, liberal, anti-Fascist publication which from its inception campaigned against persecution of Jews by Nazi Germany.  In a time before television, the magazine focused the British public’s attention to what was happening in the World.  Selling nearly two million copies per week and read by an estimated 80% of British people during WW2.  In early 1941 Picture Post published their ‘Plan for Britain’ which included child allowances, a minimum wage, a National Health Service and reform in education.  This publication led to discussions about post-war Britain, and influenced William Beveridge’s 1942 Social Insurance & Allied Services Report (known as the Beveridge report) which became the basis of the welfare state created by the Labour government elected in 1945.

21999 Antique Carved Wood Interior Room Panel Set
QTY: 1 Set £29,500 The Set


Category: Architectural Elements

QTY: 1 Set

This room interior set is a first class example of the extraordinary detailed, and extravagant, carvings created in Portugal by top notch craftsmen during the late 17th / 18th Century Baroque period.  A Portuguese historian suggested the panelling was created in the 17th Century for a merchant's house in Porto, Portugal, with further pieces being added over the following century.  Figures of sailors are depicted on the jambs of the fire surround with over mantle, and it is reputed these figures were sailing on a Portuguese ship in the 17th Century.  This would tie in with the dates and other information given by the historian, if only we knew the name of the ship!
