    A very unusual cast iron Arts & Crafts fire grate dominated by both a dragon and a sunburst. Used here together they could well represent triumph over adversity. English early 19th century

    Notes: In European tradition the dragon was typically fire-breathing and tended to symbolize adversity, chaos or evil. The sunburst symbol has been used throughout history by nations, royalty and religions. It is traditionally defined as the sudden appearance of the sun breaking through from behind clouds and so here could well represent success after adversity or light breaking through after darkness.

    An impressive and large baptismal font entirely carved from Ashburton Marble. This is a soft grey and blush pink, lightly veined marble with evidence of fossil remains of creatures, principally corals, crinoids and brachiopods, that lived in the Devonian Sea 360-380 million years ago, It was quarried in Devon in the west of England mainly during the 19th century. The deep, round font bowl sits on a sturdy circular column and is further supported by four tall Ashburton and Swedish Green Marble pillars. The whole font rests on it's original, octagonal stone base. English, late 19th century.

    Notes: Ashburton Marble is more accurately a form of limestone and not a true marble but was described as such as it was capable of taking a high polish resembling marble. It was brought to prominence in the Victorian era. In 1852 a Devon newspaper 'The Western Times', reported that some large blocks of marble had been excavated from quarries adjoining the ancient Stannary Town of Ashburton. It was suggested at the time that the marble be used for the making of chimneypieces as the veins and colour were considered very decorative and superior to that found in any other quarry in South Devon. It featured in many of of the great houses, buildings and churches throughout the country including Salisbury Cathedral. This marble was still being quarried at the Linhay Quarry into the late 20th century.

    A monumental Regency stoneware urn, in the manner of the antique. This magnificent urn recalls the form of an Ancient Greek krater - a large vessel for mixing wine. The entire urn is dedicated to the God of Wine Bacchus (Dionysus), with a band of fruiting vines to the neck, underneath which is high-relief frieze depicting a Bacchic procession or thiasus, with revellers carrying cups of wine, bunches of grapes and the other trappings of a hedonistic feast. The serpents fashioned into handles are characteristic of Bacchic iconography and they are often associated with Bacchus, as Maenads - female followers of the God - wore snakes in their hair.

    This urn is unlike any other we have come across, but echoes the popularity of themes from classical antiquity, made even more popular by the phenomenon of the Grand Tour. The great engraver and antiquarian Giovanni Battista Piranesi even produced an engraved volume solely dedicated to the designs of urns in the antique style. He then manufactured urns in his Italian workshops. In England, the famous manufacturer Elizabeth Coade and designers such as Thomas Hope also produced urns in the antique manner for an eager public.

    The urn is made from a weather impervious stoneware, similar to the famous Coade stone.

    A Louis XVI style antique fireplace surround in finely coloured and veined Skyros Marble. This unusual and attractive marble, quarried on the Greek island of Skyros and otherwise known as Skaris Marble, was first discovered by the Romans and was one of the most important marbles used by their architects and sculptors throughout the Roman Empire. It is understood that the marble extraction on the island ceased with the coming of World War II (1939-1945).
    French, late 19th century.
