A charming 19th C sailor's woolwork proudly declaring that 'Britannia Rules the Waves'!!

A naive portrayal of the English lion wearing Queen Victoria's crown sits at the feet of a smiling Britannia, both of them overseeing a fine English warship in full sail. This vessel is surrounded by naval flags; from each corner there are military cannons accompanied by their ramrods and cannon balls.

This is a lovely genuine piece of sailor's folk art. It is in its original mahogany veneered frame.

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.
