A rare early 19th century cast iron chimney ornament in the form of Pegasus. Lightly burnished. Remnants of original black paint.

Pegasus is a winged horse, who originates in Greek mythology. He was born from the blood of Medusa, slain by Perseus. The popularity of the European 'Grand Tour' by affluent society in the 18th and early 19th centuries, revived an interest in Greek and Roman antiquity. This new-found inspiration manifested itself in furniture, architecture, jewelry, and interior decoration, which utilised amongst other iconography such mythic symbols as Pegasus.

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.
