Collection of 23 genuine Grand tour intaglio's

TALLBOY INTERIORS
These are a beautiful private collection of original Grand tour pieces. These are some of the earliest examples I have seen and some of the finest. The intaglios and impressions are beautiful with a large amount having incredible details and only a few without much. The colours of the plaster show the age better than anything else. Lovely to get such a large collection of 23. The Grand tour was a period in the late 18th to mid 19th century where the aristocrats sent their children to travel around Europe to historically important cities to learn. The would collect souvenirs on their travels and would also be able to take impressions of pieces in museums. They would be allowed to bring them home and now very few pieces have survived the test of time which is why to have so many complete pieces is a wonderful thing. A little glimpse into history.

My name is Matt Dixon and for as long as I can remember I have had a love for history and design which I find relate very closely.

Since starting up TallBoy Interiors 3 years ago, I have learnt so much about what works together and I find that you can mix modern and classic pieces to create a truly unique design.

I am not afraid to express myself through the items I buy as I believe your home should represent as much about you as the way you dress.  Everyone has their own style and that is what makes this business so interesting.

As trends change, the pieces that appear on the open market change, and that keeps me thinking of how it can work in a design.

I want to provide a service that is totally personal to the client and help them use their imagination to create something unique.
