French relief carved meerschaum plaque depicting St. Francis with various beasts surrounding him
Encased in a copper surround with a small ring hanger, this would originally have had a glass front to it which is long lost
The subject matter on this one is charming with the inclusion of animals adding interest to the religious element
Meerschaum is a natural mineral deposit composed of fossilized shells from ancient sea life that have collected and compressed over millions of years. It lends itself well to carving
These small religious carvings make an intriguing and interesting wall feature

1010 Vintage is run by Mel - an incorrigible magpie with a passion for collecting and curating.  Based in mid-Wales, Mel's extensive collections have spilled out of the house, into the barns and from there onto her website.

The emphasis of 1010 Vintage is on faded glamour and rustic charm, and each piece is handpicked for its aesthetic or originality. 1010 Vintage focuses on items that sing as solo statement pieces and quirky collectibles that work to great effect en masse. Each item has had a previous life and carries that imprint with it into its new home. Where the provenance is known, details will happily be shared so these timeworn but treasured pieces don’t lose their back story – or their history.
