A naive sailor’s woolwork of the ‘Angola’, a barque built in the late 19th century in Nova Scotia. This was a trading ship that ran between Canada and England, hence the ‘stars and stripes’ and the ‘union jack’ flying at the top of her masts. This ‘woolie’ is unusual in having a raised velvet frame around the image, setting it back from the surface of the glass. In very good condition, in a period maple 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.
