A very early carved lime figure of Madonna and barely recognisable child. It is Possibly Italian with evidence of polychromatic colouring and gilt, Overall it is richly patinated, wormy, flaky and hugely atmospheric. It has evidence of filler to consolidate the friable nature of Christ. Notwithstanding, this is an early example, 16th Century and could be forgiven its rustic condition being over 300 years old or more. It measures 12 inches high.


  • H: 30cm (12in)

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.
