An original Boer War watercolour painting signed by F O'Beirne. It shows a group of mounted British soldiers on the South African Veld. Judging by their uniforms they are from one of the British Light Cavalry regiments. It probably dates to the Second Anglo-Boer War which took place between 1899 and 1902. It is beautifully and precisely painted with good detail to the men's uniforms and the horses' tack; O'Beirne was clearly an accomplished technical artist. Little is known about him other than that he specialised in military subjects and his artwork appeared on many postcards published by the British company Blum & Degan.

This painting is framed behind glass in an oak frame and is ready to hang. It is in good condition and the colours are still strong and unfaded. There is very minor foxing to the painting, and a little foxing to the mount.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
