"Cherry Bow"
Professionally Restored 2012  

Originally commissioned by the lady director of Saatchi and Saatchi in the 1960s, this waggon was one of a pair that was used for a photoshoot with The Beatles. The waggon resided with her in London for many years until she retired to Wales. After she passed away many years later, it was dry stored in a barn.

The main body is finished in Tekaloid coach enamel - crimson lake with rich cream underworks. The caravan throughout is embellished with stunning gold enamel acanthus carvings & scroll artwork, complemented with deep cherry motifs.
