Beckets Museum Display

Beckets Museum Display
We are proud to offer a unique ex maritime museum example, of a Sailors 19th Century folk art wooden oar with applied early beckets. A wonderful English museum piece of a historical nature. This example comes accompanied with illustrated papers showing various beckets and the example on the stand. A totally unique piece of maritime folk art with a great sculptural quality, recently uncovered in an ex-display museum archive sale.
Size in inches: H 33” x W 9” x D 7”
Origin: English
Period: 19th Century
Material: Wood, Leather, Rope and Paper
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form if not a bit worn and weathered due to its obvious age. A wonderful natural patina and fading of the surface have taken place over the years. The oar shows scratches and patina as do the beckets, torn in sections and weathered (but firm in form) This is an aged item so please expect natural wear. Close up photos have been supplied to illustrate these points so please observe carefully and propose questions to us if needed.

Our house style is probably best described as artistic, theatrical and, even macabre.

We often get asked by our clients, “Where did you find that?” The answer is always the same. Look hard enough and you will find what you seek.
