A Beggar after Troger

WALPOLES
A walnut and ivory figure of a beggar in the style of the works by Simon Troger. South German, circa 1750. 10 inches high.
Simon Troger (c.1693 – 1769) came originally from the Tyrol. He worked in Meran and Innsbruck, but probably also spent some time in Italy. From 1726 he was established in Munich. He specialised in figures and groups made of ivory and wood in combination, with inset glass eyes. The technical accomplishment of his imposing work epitomises the highly sophisticated level of ivory and woodcarving in Germany throughout the 18th and much of the 19th century.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
