Collection of three watercolour paintings on board by the celebrated garden painter George Samuel Elgood (1856-1943). Elgood is probably best known for his collaboration with Gertrude Jekyll for their book Some English Gardens published in 1904. He established his reputation and career painting the gardens found at English country houses in the decades before the first world war.

The others, of the Strid in Bolton Wood and a carpet of bluebells, being of less formal landscapes. Each is signed in the picture, the view of the hedge is also dated 1911, and presented in a period card frame. Some foxing to the formal garden view and fading to the view of bluebells.

The Owen family of Llanrwst, a small market town in the Conwy valley, are probably the most prolific and best known family of 18th century clockmakers in Wales. Watkin Owen (1755-1809) was aged just 21 when his father, the respected clockmaker John Owen, died. After establishing himself as head of the business, he improved and refined his father’s works, adding a fifth pillar to the movement and producing a remarkable number of clocks of consistently high quality and reliability housed in excellent regional cases. For more information about Watkin Owen you can’t beat the remarkable study of his output which makes up the bulk of Colin and Mary Brown’s book The Clockmakers of Llanrwst.
