19th C sailor's woolwork naval ships

MARC KITCHEN-SMITH
A superb original sailor's woolwork of a fleet of ships at sea. Amongst the five naval craft featured, two are steam-powered, a sight which would have become more common from the 1850s onwards.

The artwork is in lovely condition, with little fading to the wool colours, and practically all of the delicate rigging intact. An unusually large example of sailor's folk art. The glass has been cleaned and the back resealed.

  • H: 72cm (28.35in)
  • W: 85cm (33.46in)

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
