Dating from around 1910, these are superbly carved. The composition of each of these matching birds is perfectly balanced; graceful and rhythmic.

The stone itself is beautiful and unusual. It has a look and feel of Serpentine and is about a 5 on the Mohs hardness scale, similar to marble. (It's harder than soapstone, softer than Jade)

Each bird is 19cm tall to the tip of the crested head. One has had a professional repair where the tail has broken at some point (see last image which has been lightened to try and highlight it), which is not overly noticeable otherwise both are in excellent condition.

ROCHE COWARD ANTIQUES

By Appointment
Sheffield

WWW.ROCHECOWARDANTIQUES.COM

We are Rebecca Roche and Alex Coward.

Our background is in the visual arts, and we value craftsmanship and skill in all things.  This love for quality and beauty, and the scarcity of it in so much of modern manufacturing, has led us to this venture: A Bohemian boutique offering rare, unusual antiques, art pieces and vintage items for the home and garden.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Our style is not for the faint hearted!

We lean towards the highly decorative.  If you don't immediately recoil at the prospect of having a huge polychrome carved Balinese temple door in your living room you are in the right place.  We don't do beige or magnolia and we may not be the landlords go to choice, but why choose neutrals when you can have Turquoise or Gold?

GILTY PLEASURES

We like painted things, woven things, carved things and gilded things.  If it is unique and beautiful, if the hand of the artist is present, we like it.  We love great design, elegant lines, bold colour. And gilded things.

We source items from across the ages, from 18th Century Asia to 20th Century Europe.  We want to help you create bespoke interiors, to mix and match; to provide an eclectic, rich, opulent and exotic living environment.
