Cut & 'Repoussé' Card Basket of Flowers

A Georgian cut & 'repoussé' card relief picture of a basket of flowers on a shelf; a fine example of this genre of work which is rarely seen.
When this art work is encountered it would appear to be by the same hand. Aways the same straw-coloured paper for the subject and mounted onto a cobalt coloured paper. The card is cut to replicate the flower heads in the arrangement by cutting to the shape of the flower's petals and then working them from behind, as in repoussé worked metal, and then building up each separate flower and accompanying foliage; passionflower, pinks, chrysanthemum and asters.
If still within the original box frame it will be as this, with ebonized sides and a carved pearwood surround. Circa 1760
A pair of such pictures were sold by Lawrences of Crewkerne in 1998 before being sold again in 2009, this time through Christies with the provenance as being with Alastair Sampson Antiques Ltd.

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.
