SOLD

 

A bold and colourful mid-20th century interpretation of a Victorian sailor's woolwork. Highly decorative in its own right, and suitably 'naive' in its design. In very good condition.

 

After the Second World War, and into the early 1950s, antique folk art was rediscovered and revalued for its handmade qualities and homely charm. Original examples were showcased at popular public exhibitions such as the Festival of Britain in 1951. This contributed to an influence on the designs of the day and a flurry of modern interpretations of vernacular furniture, art, illustration, and soft furnishings.
