A charming and naive interpretation of a Spitfire. This rather primitive and yet lovingly fashioned aeroplane was a made for a young chap in Dorset during the war and passed down through the family. Obvious signs of years of play, or maybe it crashed?. Primitive cut aluminium propeller, original tin wheels, old worm or schrapnel holes. With odd unresolved areas, but detailed gun turret at the back ( probably not a Spitfire). Sadly I have to stick to the price.

I am an artist, sculptor, collector and restorer.  I have always been inspired and influenced by my love of the old. Since collecting tins, postcards, early textiles and gadgets as a teenager I have surrounded myself with “stuff”. I started trading in the 1970s from my architectural effects shop Leaded Lights and design shop Gothic in Greenwich. My stock reflects my enjoyment of the antique and the peculiar, from early Medieval to Victorian to Art Deco and industrial design.

I endeavour to hunt out the unusual - richly patinated wood, faded sun-drenched   paintwork and gently burnished ironwork.

We are based in a Victorian Gothic building in Somerset, only 15 minutes from the M5.
