Austrian Empire Armoire. Decorated with Flowers.

A superb example of marriage cupboard and of a variety of folk decoration that is famous throughout Europe, you can see from the carved detail and the quality of the painting that this was made and decorated by master folk artists.

People sometimes call this ‘cloud marbling’ but I have been told that the characteristic blue-green ground decoration is imitative of light seen through the leaves of poplar trees.

These painted pieces come from the Giant Mountains, an area now in the North of Bohemia, bordering into East Germany and Poland, a multi-ethnic region at the time.
This piece itself came recently from a famous collection and hence is, as previously stated, is a fine example of the genre.

Pole too interior but can be shelved. Original lock and key. Truly superb.

Fleet Gallery deals in high quality works of art with a focus on 20th century British figurative and abstract paintings, prints and sculpture.

Our aim is to offer an interesting collection of 20th century British art. We believe that quality and price do not necessarily go hand in hand. There are a group of first class British painters, still relatively unknown and these are shown alongside the more established names.

Fleet Gallery is based in the exciting area of Norman Road, St. Leonard's-on-Sea, in East Sussex. This is a great little area to explore whether looking for art, furniture, or even just popping along to sample the great cafes or restaurants in the area. St. Leonard's on Sea is a thriving area really worth a visit.

Please enjoy our online art gallery or visit us in person and if you would like please feel free to email or give us a call.
