Sell Garden Statuary and Architectural Antiques. Valuations on Garden Statuary and Architectural Antiques
Popular in British gardens since Tudor times, Greek and Roman Gods were early influences on Statuary and ornaments. Other animal and forms appeared in the 18th and 19th Century including various animals, Nymphs, Putti, Dolphins etc. One of the most famous 18th Century sculptors of garden ornamentation was Sir Henry Cheere. Craftsmen used stone, lead and a composition stone, such as those developed by Coade and Sealy.
In the 20th Century more abstract forms and other materials were introduced such as marble, bronze and glass.
Nowadays there is also value and interest in the more utilitarian items used in the gardens and farmyards of yesteryear.
