19th Century Carved Stone Mr Punch

ARABESQUE ANTIQUES
A glorious early 19th century carved stone depiction of Mr Punch. In generally good condition and beautifully weathered, the head appears to have been off at some point in its life.

An archetypical and controversial British figure with his origins in the charismatic 16th century Italian puppet Pulcinella, Mr Punch has been performing in the UK for over 350 years. A puppet play that would have featured a version of Punch was first recorded in England in May 1662 by the diarist Samuel Pepys.

English first half of the 19th century

Inspired by proportion, colour, texture and the eccentric, Arabesque are essentially English country house, with the emphasis on grand scale and creative pieces from the attic, kitchen, garden and estate cottage.

Peter has a particular affinity in two disciplines.  The first being painted furniture, where he has an uncanny eye for seeking out pieces that have been painted many times over the years and, together with Dawn, they peel back the layers to reveal a pieces true character, Dawn only enhancing through skilled decoration, such paintwork that originally existed, but which might require a sensitive hand to restore it to it's former glory.

The second is a love for, and great understanding, of English antique garden ornament. Over the years, Peter has sourced some unique and incredible pieces, all of which become rarer and harder to find.
