Gothic Revival: some new stock

Last month, we had the opportunity to acquire a selection of gothic-revival furniture and works of art, from private collections. These, added to examples already in our stock, are a celebration of architect/designers and manufacturers active from the second quarter of the nineteenth century.

Recent arrivals include an example of A.W.N. Pugin’s Waste Not Want Not bread plate; an icon of nineteenth-century design and manufacture.

‘Modern Gothic’ furniture is represented by a writing table by John Pollard Seddon and a cabinet by Charles Bevan (below).

A large-scale Chinese sang de boeuf vase, with silver mounts marked ‘Krall’, dates from 1883, the year Charles Krall went into partnership with Barkentin, who manufactured plate for may designers, including Burges, Scott and Bodley.

An étagère, attributed to Collier & Plucknett, is reminiscent of furniture at Tyntesfield.

Further details are available in the ‘stock’ section of our website.
