Rather more attractive, with its visible escapement, and architecturally imposing than some of its brethren I hope you will agree this victorian mantel clock was made, with a French movement, for J.W.Benson of Ludgate Hill, London. Although we are not clock specialists and it has not been restored or serviced it is ticking away perfectly happily in our shop.

Scottish long case clock  circa 1815
English oak chest of drawers from circa 1670 with mitred mouldings, desirable proportions and graduated drawer layout. This splendid chest, which is absolutely quintessential of its period, has come through its 350 odd years with a few minor repairs. Whilst the brass escutcheons are very likely the originals it is fitted with, at least, its third set of brasses (these being of a style some 30 years later than the piece itself). However, importantly, it has the unusual distinction of remaining absolutely rot and worm free. It measures 39 inches in width, 35 inches high and has a depth of a generous 23 inches.

Figures on a Terrace - surrealist painting
A large, exotically embroidered panel of a peacock resting in a great tree with huge sparkling flowers and leaves, symbolic of the Tree of Life. The stitches are a mixture of silk threads, raised work, bead work and metal threads of silver and gold. The tail of the peacock is a spectacular work of art that shimmers over the bright pink background. Although the back ground colour is very bright the actual embroidery is of very subtle colours. The peacock is symbolic of royalty and this bird does indeed have a truly regal expression. There is an original paper label attached to the bottom right hand corner which notes that James A Ogilvy's Ltd of Montreal were selling this for the grand price of $125.00 back at the turn of the 20th Century. This is in good order and as bright and clean as it was when first for sale. Dimensions: 44" x 20"

Exotic Peacock Panel  Silk & Silver & Gold Threads
This is a magnificent example of Plushwork from the mid 19th Century. Plushwork was one of the most popular embroidery techniques of the time, very closely related to Berlin woolwork. It is a way of introducing a three dimensional effect into any canvas work embroidery.Special plush wools were used in a loop stitch which, when cut and brushed up made the final effect like velvet. Exotic birds are often the theme of the embroidery and this one has been made into a cushion with original cotton backing in a botanical pattern. The expertise needed to grade the colours and the precise cutting needed to bring the whole effect into play can be recognised in this piece of Victorian embroidery. The plushwork of the cushion is in great order, the bead work at the base of the bird is a little loose. The background of beige stitching is slightly marked is places, but it is the plushwork that is so highly collectible.

18" x 18" x aprox 3" thickness of pad inside.

Mid 19th Century Plushwork Peacock Cushion
This is a panel of pale peach satin embroidered in silver thread of Turkish origin. The panel incorporates the skirt front, bodice front, collar and cuffs for an exotic early Victorian gown. This would be perfect to be used today as part of a wonderful Wedding Dress. the material is in good order with just a tiny mark and a half inch tear between a cuff and the skirt panel in the top right hand corner. This work was very popular in both America and England during Victoria's reign, though this would have been acquired pre Albert's death and never used.
