From a collection of early 20th century hand carved wooden 'Casting Moulds’. This Elephant mould was used as the master template by artisans to create ornamental pieces.

The wooden carvings were initially wrapped in papier-mache (small parts are still visible on some of the carvings) and when dry, cut in half to release the wooden cast (hence the visible cut marks on some of the carvings). The two halves would then have been joined together to create the whole figure, before being painted, covered in resin or gilded etc.

I have been sourcing antiques and vintage decorative items for 20 years. I primarily started in France. Always looking for new and exciting vintage pieces has taken me through Europe and most recently Eastern Europe. 

Based in Surrey, UK, you can find me regularly exhibiting my collections of antique and vintage finds at London antiques markets, primarily Kempton Antiques market and International Fairs such as Ardingly and Newark.
