23412 Christopher Dresser Old Balcony Leg Tables

These repurposed balcony sections are great examples of why the designer Christopher Dresser is thought of as one of the most talented designers of the 20th Century.  Dresser’s success was in part down to his enthusiasm for the industrial revolution.  While contemporaries such as William Morris rallied against modernisation, Dresser appreciated the benefits it could bring and he strove to successfully produce well designed, functional and affordable products for everyday people.

23797 Large Late 19C Oak Surround Mantel Stone Legs
QTY: 1 £14,250


Category: Wooden Surrounds

QTY: 1

It has been a while since we’ve seen such an impressive, and frankly huge fire surround!  To give you an idea of just how monumental this Victorian surround is; Barney is our scale model in the photos, and he is 6’3!  The combination of materials used for this surround makes it even more interesting.  Oak could have been chosen for the mantel due to its material properties when compared with the limestone legs.  Comparatively the main benefits of oak is that it is lighter and has better tensile strength in order to span the 3m+ required.

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 and overmantel, 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!

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!
