Copper Clad Box by John Pearson

Item Description

Delightful little copper-clad cedarwood casket by the Arts & Crafts master craftsman John Pearson who, although he worked in Newlyn for a while, was in fact a Londoner.

Measuring just a touch under 16 cm wide, around 11 cm deep and 6.5 cm high and showing on the lid the typical deep repouss√© work that characterises Pearson’s work.

Depicting two birds, their bodies facing away but their heads turned towards each other so as to almost create a mirror image. The birds are framed within a looping and swirling Art Nouveau inspired border.

The lid is fitted with a good strong latch at the front and the rear hinge works perfectly with none of the all too commonly seen play. 

Marked verso with the initials JP and dating from around 1905.

Ref: 12892 (Boxes)
