An extremely rare example of tramp art. This miniature chip-carved doll's chair is actually also a child's comfort rattle. During its construction in the 19th century, some of the chair struts had been hollowed-out and filled with glass beads, so that it was able to make a sound when shaken. An unusual piece of folk art. Original oxidized paint surface of black over an earlier dark green. A small amount of damage to one of the front forward-protruding struts. A unique piece!

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.
