    A well painted antique Victorian armorial hatchment, within a gilt and ebonised frame, from the19th century with the letters OBHT and the date 1 FEBRII 1852 surrounding a knights helmet set above a shield, with three cross pattee beneath a crown, and a crowned rampant lion dexter. Wear commensurate with age.
    English dated 1852.

    Notes: A hatchment is a large coat of arms, usually painted on a wood and canvas frame, and were carried at the front of the funeral procession after which they were erected over the door of a deceased person's house. Diamond in shaped the hatchment stayed in place for one year, after which it was moved to the parish church where it was usually hung on a wall. Hatchments were used in Britain from the 17th century, and the last recorded use was in 1942 at Over Kellet church in Lancashire. Some churches display numerous hatchments spanning centuries of local gentry families and thus are a good source of information about local history. Look for hatchments over nave arcades or on the walls of transepts.

    An historically interesting oil painting on board showing a captured 'Three Masted Frigate Under Sail At Sea' in the early 19th century. Well painted with realistic movement of the ship and the sea, it is signed with monogram on reverse & part of a London art galleries label.The interesting feature is that the Red Ensign is carried upside down at the stern in humiliation, indicating it is a captured British vessel, in this case by the post revolution French Navy whose tricolour flys at the Mainmast.. Circa 1871.

    NOTES : "THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN "...See second image....A 17th century English ballad. Tradition has it that when Lord Cornwallis surrendered at the Siege of Yorktown (1781) to the Colonists in the War of Indpendance the British miltary band played this tune....The second image shows another painting, not on offer, depictiong the US Columbus of the Continental later the US Navy with a captured small British Brigantine /merhcantman, the Lord Lifford 1776 with the Red Ensign upside down. The Columbus flys the Grand Union flag of the British East India Company, with the Union flag in the top corner and stripes…which was the first flag of the US after indpendance later replaced by the Stars & Stripes.The Captain, John Paul Jones was a Scot, founder of the US Navy.

    Research so far has shown that the signature CHARLES H MOORE,on the reverse is probably not that of this artist, an American, who left a promising career as a painter to become among the first art historians at an academic institution in the United States at Princeton University. He died in Hampshire , England in the early 20th century

    An 18th century, possibly much earlier, gros and petit point needlepoint tapestry in the Flemish medieval style, of a lady and courtier flanked by a unicorn and lion bearing standards, in the millefleur tradition of the original, from which it is inspired. The original collection, known as " The Lady and the Unicorn " a series depicting the six senses, this one representing " Hearing ", are displayed in the Musee de Cluny in Paris.

    COMMENTS : Needlepoint tapestry dates from Ancient Egypt, 1600 BC, and was practised by 15th century Flemish craftsmen in this case from designs for the French Court. In this tapestry the lady plays a portative organ on top of a table covered with a Turkish rug. Her maidservant stands to the opposite side and operates the bellows. The lion and unicorn once again frame the scene holding up the pennants. Just as on all the other original tapestries, the unicorn is to the lady's left and the lion to her right - a common denominator to all the tapestries. In our example the positions are reversed. The Lady and the Unicorn: "Hearing" one of the famous series of Hearing, Smell, Sight, Taste, Touch...and Desire. Research continues.
