London’s LAPADA Art and Antiques Fair 2016Under the moon dial at the top of this stunning clock, it says Tempus Rerum Imperator – ‘Time is the ruler of all things’. It certainly seems to be when you see the intricate detail of the cream lacquer and the finely crafted dials. On the front are depictions of a banquet, horses and riders, running hounds and people relaxing by an oriental pavilion. The clock was made in Wells and has dials for the time as well as days and lunar phases.

London’s LAPADA Art and Antiques Fair 2016This unusual ivory chandelier was made for Schloss Linderhof, a Bavarian castle belonging to King Ludwig II whose fantastical ambitions resulted in many fairytale-type castles including, most famously,Neuschwanstein. Phillip Perrot (1840-1907), who almost certainly designed this piece, was Ludwig’s court sculptor.

3Though it isn’t huge (just 155 x 66cm), this rya (a type of Scandinavian rug) is a particularly interesting example of early 20th-century Scandinavian decorative art. It is thought to have been made by Laila Karttunen, who won the Milan Triennale in 1933 and may have made the rug in celebration. Another theory is that the woven letters are ‘AA’ – standing for renowned husband and wife design team, Alvar and Aino Aalto.
