Vintage Watercolour
Burton-type
Showman's Waggon
believed to be c. 1905 by
SYDNEY VALE, F.R.S.A. (1916 – 1991)
Signed lower left & dated 1957.

Frame about 403mm x 490mm (16 ¼ ” x 19 ¼ ”).
Picture about 265mm x 354mm (10 3/8 ” x 14”).
As mounted and framed by the artist.

Probably painted on the bank of the Thames opposite what looks like Gravesend.
Painted from life ‘en plein air’ (in the open on the spot).

Sydney Vale was best known for watercolours of scenes from Norfolk to the River Thames and renowned for his spontaneous paintings in the open air. What he saw is what you get.

As a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts he was highly respected. His work achieved prices in the mid hundreds of pounds. This picture was one of a group sold by a member of the artist’s family.

This vardo is highly decorated and possibly used by Romanies after redundancy from its original use as a showman after the advent of motorized vehicles.

Please look at the images carefully and please do not buy unless you really really like it.

Yorkshire Build
Barrel Top Gypsy Car
avan
Circa 1920s

This Yorkshire Barrel Top Wagon was built in Hartlepool, by T. Smith, a well known North Country Wagon Builder in the 1920s.

The Yorkshire Barrel-Top was built of a light build so it was able to be pulled by one horse over hilly roads and they were able to cover long distances in a day.  This type of wagon was mainly used by Horse Dealers and Produce Pickers who travelled from one County to another as a means of earning a living.

In excellent condition, this wagon includes shafts, steps, original hay box, hen coop and external storage box.  Inside, the wagon is beautifully decorated and fitted with a double bed with storage underneath, storage cupboards, padded bench and the original ‘queenie’ stove.

Location
Brecon, Wales

'Provençal' Style Waggon

This wagon was built last year (2015). The aim when building it was to create a picturesque and comfortable “extra room” to turn any garden into the best romantic place to spend a night. It has been displayed in the Costa Brava’s most famous open-air fair. Specially built to handle a spacious and comfortable double bed and a room for having meals, it’s been designed according to the Provençal tradition of herb-selling Gypsy families.

It has a huge bevelled window, discrete electric lighting, and a fabric porch matching its colours. Creatively painted using Swedish “milk painting” technique, handpainted flowers on the side, and decorated with original William Morris wallpaper.

Genuine reason for sale: we’re looking forward to building the next craft so we’re considering selling this one or renting it for tourism. Can be exported anywhere in the world, or personally delivered to anywhere in the North of Spain / South of France.

For further information:
