On the First Day of Christmas...

It is that time of year again when we are turning our minds to gift ideas for our loved ones or getting our homes ready for entertaining.

Here are some ideas that may inspire you...

The Tunbridge ware box is beautifully decorated with parquetry veneers and is ideal for holding jewellery, cuff links and watches. Another similar Tunbridge ware box can be seen on my website.

The Georgian bracket is a superb piece of late baroque carving and is perfect for displaying a piece of sculpture or a large vase.

On the baroque theme the pair of fire dogs are of magnificent scale and would be the perfect finishing touch to a handsome fireplace.

If you have time to visit the shop we have an extensive display of cartoons and prints ranging from the Georgian period to modern including the full selection of Tottering by Gently cartoons.

I wish you all a very happy Christmas and I look forward to welcoming you to the shop soon.
