A charming original children's book illustration from about the 1940s/50s of a very jolly looking Santa Claus. This is an original watercolour painting on card, beautifully depicting Santa delivering Christmas gifts to a sleeping child. It incorporates a puzzle in the form of an anagram on a note at the end of the child's bed saying what they want for Christmas. The solution is written in pencil on the card below as "I want a teddy please Father Christmas". The title of the painting is also written in pencil as "Father Christmas Knows, Do You?". The painting is signed 'NL' but I haven't identified who this is. They were clearly a very competent artist; the piece is beautifully rendered in vivid colours with appealing detail. This would make a wonderful and unique Christmas gift.
This painting is unframed. The condition is very good with just a crease and slight wear to the corners of the card.

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.
