Description

French Buffet c.1800 decorated by Melissa White in a Cogwheel pattern found in a Devon Cob house fire place.
Period French Buffet painted by Melissa White.
A LARGE and useful unique linen cupboard.
The black and white cogwheel design was found in the fireplace of a late medieval cob-built cottage in Devon. It was common to decorate fireplace linings with geometric designs imitating the sgraffito technique.
The soot from the fire could be used as pigment. For this cupboard I've used a series of stencils and chalk paint.
Distressing and waxing the paintwork allows the extant textures and history of the piece to tell their story.
