About 200yearoldhouse

On Etsy since 2015

Art, Crafts and Antiques from Ayrshire in Scotland

For more than twenty years, Alan Lees worked as a successful sculptor, mainly in wood. When arthritis began to make his huge, trademark carvings increasingly difficult, he turned to unusual and colourful ‘naive’ artworks in acrylics, paintings full of movement and activity, often depicting a wealth of figures in traditional settings. His art has been variously described in terms of Lowry, Fred Yates, Grandma Moses and even Breugel.

During the pandemic, Alan found that he could resume woodcarving again, if he could sit down and work on smaller pieces at a sloping bench. Consequently, he finished a beautiful carving of the Last Supper and a truly extraordinary hand carved chess set, a unique collectable, featuring the Hapsburg versus the Ottoman armies. This took more than six months to carve, there will never be another like it, and it is currently for sale, here on Etsy! It's an expensive item - but in reality, it's priceless.

Meanwhile, we have also decided to consolidate our other antique and occasional restoration business here on Etsy. Catherine Czerkawska - when she isn't working on her successful novels and non-fiction books - deals in beautiful antique and vintage textiles and other curios, often with a Scottish or Irish provenance. Sometimes the smaller wooden items are restored by Alan.

We hope you like our 2022 selection.
