Rare Arts and Crafts Oak and copper Motto box settle by Shapland and Petter of Barnstaple. Here we have a wonderful and rare Shapland and Petter Oak motto settle c1900. As you can see the settle has wonderful colour and patina.A similar settle is recorded on page 58 of Daryl Bennetts book Shapland and Petter Arts and Crafts Furniture (2005). The top rail is nicely shaped with the uprights having square top turrets. There is a beautiful repousse worked copper panel which reads "WELCOME EVER SMILES" which is from Shakespeares' Troilus and Cressida 3.3 (Welcome ever smiles, and farewell goes out sighing). The panel has wonderful almost medieval lettering and has a lovely colour.
The settle has all those wonderful small touches you expect with Shapland and Petter furniture and when all together give this its unmistakable Arts and Crafts styling. The settle is fresh to the market and has been in my sitting room alcove for over 30 years. This also accounts for the wonderful condition. Front Height at arm - 27.5. Please call for a price.
