A charming naive school portrait of a 9 year old Edward Haynes Eversley, stood in a country house interior, his dog sat at his feet, begging for a biscuit. There is a table with a sumptuous green cover, a vase of flowers, books and the plate of those biscuits. A giltwood and red upholstered chair is to the boy’s right with - my favourite part - a green parrot, watching on. All stood on a rather splendid looking carpet.
Oil on canvas, unframed. Obvious signs of age. Inscribed to the reverse and signed by the artist, ‘J.C. Miles’ - John Christopher Miles, an artist active at the time whose works achieve good results at auction.

According to records, Edward Haynes (or Haines) Eversley (1841-1924) had connections to North America and also Somerset, England. He married Hester Elizabeth Penruddlocke and they had 3 children.

Dated 1850.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
