Antique folk art carved frame - woman

MARC KITCHEN-SMITH
A rare piece of 19th century Cornish folk art. Chip-carved oak box frame made specifically for the central, photographic portrait of a young woman. The carving is mainly of flowers, namely Lily-of-the-Valley and roses. Lily-of-the-Valley signifies humility, chastity, sweetness and purity. It is also said to bring luck in love. Whereas the rose expresses hope, promise and new beginnings. The elements of the frame are deeply cut, and boxed behind the original, Victorian glass. Even the support stand to the rear has been hand-carved. In very good, original condition.

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.
