A Large Woolwork of the Royal Coat of Arms

Soldiers of the British Army learnt to use their needlework skills to produce woolwork pictures from their naval counterparts when on voyages to their postings, very often India. Initially producing maritime scenes much the same as their naval counterparts, they soon developed their own style and subject matter including the design of a vase of flowers, often on a chequer-board floor surrounded by a drape of tassled curtains. Other designs might be based around regimental honours, cannon and figures of soldiers.
This Royal Coat of Arms for Queen Victoria is a development of the regimental honour designs and was produced G. Battley in 1899; his name and date stitched beneath the design. Within a fine period maple veneered frame.

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.
