This kind of decorative
a ngel was part of temple
chariots, which were u sed
to carry religious icon s i n
chariot festivals. They hail
from southern India and were
intricately crafted in wo od in
the 19th century, and feature
a faint gold leaf fi nish.
These stools are the perfect mix of old and new. They
date back to the 1890s, but, covered in black leather,
have a modern look and would suit any home or decor.
THE INVISIBLE WOMAN
French designer René Lalique was considered one of the
world’s top jewellers and glassmakers at the turn of the
20th century. Lalique, his glassware company, produced
this 1940s art deco Floreal glass figure of a nude maiden,
reflecting his interest in the female form and natural, fluid
lines. The name comes from the word Floréal, the eighth
month of the French Republican Calendar, and comes
from the Latin word meaning ‘flowering’.
