Artists include: FREDERICK CHRISTIAN LEWIS SNR (1779-1856), was an eminent painter, etcher, aquatint and stipple engraver. Lewis transformed numerous natural history paintings into aquatints. His superlative skills as an engraver led to frequent commissions from Royalty, and to his contribution to J. M. W. Turner's Liber Studiorum, a collection of seventy-one etchings with mezzotint, which greatly influenced landscape painting. Apart from the River Dart volume he produced a similar volume on the Exe. As the frames have been scratched buyers may prefer to have the etchings sent in their mounts alone. Postage costs will then be reduced. None of these etchings have been examined out of the frames.

ROBERT HILLS (1769-1844). English Painter & Etcher. He exhibited six or seven drawings annually at the Royal Academy and was a member of the Society of Water-colours. His favourite subjects were cattle, sheep, donkeys, pigs, horses and above all deer. The British Museum holds the artist's collection of his own etchings, over 1200 of the finest impressions and proofs.

HERBERT RAILTON. (1857-1910). I have added a score of the ORIGINAL SIGNED ARTWORK DRAWINGS in pen & ink on card by HERBERT RAILTON for: EDINBURGH - A Historical and Topographical Account of the City, Written by M. G. Williamson. Methuen, 1906. After his drawings of a railway accident at Blackburn station (1881) were published in the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, Railton went on to become one of the leading illustrators of his day. Railton provided many black and white illustrations for magazines and books - including editions of books by famous authors such Oliver Goldsmith, Henry Fielding, Samuel Johnson and travel guides, such as Coaching Days and Coaching Ways. Despite my best efforts, the images of these Railton drawings do not adequately show the contrast between the black ink and the white board.

EILEEN ALICE SOPER, (1905-1990) was an etcher and illustrator of children's and wildlife books. She produced a series of etchings mainly of children playing and illustrated books for other writers, notably for Enid Blyton and Elizabeth Gould, and wrote and illustrated her own children's book. Later in life she concentrated on writing and illustrating wildlife books. She was a founder member of the Society of Wildlife Artists (SWLA). The original unique drawings on this site were used to illustrate the 1992 edition of her book Badgers. Her work commands high prices when it comes on the market.

Antique carved fruitwood marriage bed pediment
Overall this panel is 1500mm (approximately 4 feet 6 inches) wide and 180mm (7 inches) high. It is carved in a harder wood (cherry?) and backed onto a softer fruitwood, possibly pear.
1887 - 150 x 18 cm

Antique nineteenth century carved fruitwood marriage bed pediment, probably French and from a pair of farming families. This delightful panel is beautifully carved with a ram and a sheep beneath a garland of vines bearing bunches of grapes and surmounted by a star. On either side of this central relief are large flower heads and, stretching to the extremities of the panel, are garlands. The one on the left is of oak leaves and acorns and that on the right, possibly the arbutus or strawberry tree. A central scroll is dated 1887 with initials V N ET M A. The item has suffered from worming in the past as may be seen to a limited extent on the front but mainly in the softer backing wood. This is a wonderful interior design object and will make a delightful present on the occasion of a marriage or anniversary and will look good on the wall of a farm, small-holding or in the most chic of city lofts or apartments!
