Antique Folk Art Painting on Glass. Transylvania Early 20th Century

A collection of reverse painted religious scenes on glass, early 20th century. This typical rural artform mimicked the content of sober German prints, painted on to thin sheets of glass and placed in simple pine wood frames, sometimes stained or decorated. The resulting work, with its naivety of hand and abundance of vivid colour, is both decorative and joyful.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
