Famous baroque church bits come to Salvo Fair 2009

Handmade 19thC Italian marble black and white cabochon floor coming to Salvo Fair 2009

THE Architectural Forum of Islington London will be bringing items from one of Nicholas Hawksmoor's six London churches to this year's Salvo Fair at Knebworth. Jason Davies said, 'We were lucky to have been chosen to dispose of items resulting from the recent refurbishment of St Anne's Church, Limehouse. Among the items we plan to bring this year will be 20sqm of handmade 19thC Italian marble black and white cabochon floor, black marble altar steps, stone flags and six early Georgian six panelled pine doors, probably dating from Hawksmoor's original church.' The church was completed in 1725.
Nicholas Hawksmoor worked on St Pauls cathedral under the tutelage of Sir Christopher Wren.

Jason Davies is a long-established London dealer who has been involved in architectural salvage clearance from a number of London's landmark buildings. These include the Baltic Exchange, Bishopsgate, the largest complete building salvage in London since London Bridge, which was displaced to allow the Gherkin to be built, and which was sold to Estonia.
