An unusual and possibly rare Neo-Rococo panel on curved mahogany base. Lightly restored. Carton pierre, Lincrusta, papier mâché and Thetford Pulpware are part of a family of wall finishes, carvings, mouldings and embossed effects that emerged in the 18th Century and continued throughout the Victorian era, of which Anaglypta became widespread as richly-ornamented, deep-coloured wall reliefs. This museum piece demonstrates how effective and textural such mouldings were. What looks convincing as a carved rococo panel is in fact a pressed moulding in sectional form (look at joint in photograph). Ironically this piece, having survived the vagaries of amateur paint stripping, is potentially rarer than a carving of the same subject matter and period.

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.
