    Original hand coloured Snaffles print of the canal turn at the Grand National race at Aintree. Dated 1926, the subtitle of this picture is "A memory, The Old Sergeant and Geoffrey Bennet". Signed in pencil in the lower right corner.
    This print is one of the most popular ever produced of the Grand National. The horse jumping the right hand corner is Brights Boy who was third, running in the colours of the famous polo player S Sanford. The same colours having been carried to victory in the 1923 race by Sergeant Murphy (the Sergeant of the remarque below the picture).

    This picture came to us in a very poor state but after professional restoration by a Museum conservator it is once again a great example of snaffles work.
    Charles "Snaffles" Johnson Payne (1884–1967) was an English painter best known for his humorous work but also for his outstanding draughtsmanship and depiction of the horse in action which some might say exceeds Lionel Edwards and Munnings. Snaffles specialised in water colours and drawings sold as prints which, at least initially, were hand coloured by the artist and his sisters. His subject matter was invariably military, racing or hunting / equestrian scenes, or some combination of these. Many of his most famous pictures contrast or combine military life with the peacetime pursuits of racing and hunting.

    Ball And Claw Antiques

    Ball & Claw Antiques is influenced by multiple people with diverse qualifications, backgrounds and experience so the mix of items we find, restore and sell represent their various interests, passions and skills.
    We focus on quality items which even if worn with the rigours of time and use, still capture the imagination or attract the eye with their colours or shape. Some antiques wear their age with ease and carry the age mellowed colour and scars of use without harming their form or use but others are not so lucky. Where necesary and practical we will try to sympathetically restore damaged antiques with minimum intervention so that function or form is restored without harming their natural patination and other signs of age. Sometimes we will restore an item even when it doesnt make financial sense to do so - because sometimes we just cant help but feeling that it deserves to be saved for future generations.
