The Lockdown Exhibition, 19th Century Pets, Animals and the Natural World

We, like many countries across the world have been under Covid-19 lockdown for some weeks.  We have all endured the constraints that this has presented in the interest of personal and public wellbeing, and rightly so! 

From my small suburban garden, I have been entertained by a nesting pair of Great Tits, flying backwards and forwards, feeding and tending to their young that have chosen the unlikely home of an unused terracotta amphora vase (with a very narrow neck) from which they somehow disappear and emerge regularly throughout the day.   It struck me that especially in times like these, the natural world and indeed our own pets can provide a great deal of pleasure and comfort.

It reminded me of the beautiful and rare 19th century porcelain group of nesting Finches produced by Meissen that we currently have in stock and has inspired the curation of our online “Lockdown Exhibition” from our inventory of fine quality European porcelain and Japanese works of art including new acquisitions that happen to include a great many animal forms.

The items for sale range in prices and are available to peruse online for the very first time.  If you require any further information on these, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.
