19thC. Gouache Painting of Young Boy from Paris

framed Water-Color and Gouache Portrait Painting from France of a Young Boy wearing a big hat.

A pioneer in decorative antiques, Malcolm has been in the business since giving up law studies and given his passion for French and Mediterranean art and traditions, it seems apt that his London shop/warehouse nestles beside the Eurostar Rail Terminus at London's St Pancras Station.

One of the foremost dealers in naive objects, folk art, fairground carvings and the visually decorative, he is driven by his love for objects that fire the imagination. Renowned for unearthing pieces with a rare magical quality, he sources the original, the one-off and the inspiration for regular long time clients and dealers or for newer contacts seeking either something beautiful for their homes or just the making of a good investment.

A visit to Relic Antiques 'Antique Warehouse' is guaranteed to open a door to a star quality stock. Expect the unexpected, from simple craftsman made pieces, or the flippantly amusing like period shop signs and fairground art, to the more sophisticated such as charming paintings and unusual examples of country furniture.

When in London visit the 'Antique Warehouse' which is located at 133-135 Pancras Road, London NW1 1UN and though normally open late afternoons only (3pm-6pm) on weekdays and 1pm-5pm on Saturdays, it is always worth calling ahead to make sure we are open. Also by appointment. Telephone +44 (0)7831 785059.
