Victorian carving by James Peake on sale – Daily Echo

Nicki Holt is a descendant of James Peake, who spent four months creating an incredibly detailed spray of flowers and fruit from a single piece of wood.

Ms Holt was invited to view the work at the recent Chelsea Antiques Fair after it was bought by Charles Wallrock, of Wick Antiques in Lymington.

Ms Holt, an artist who lives in Suffolk, said: “It was thrilling to see this piece by my great grandfather – I had never seen it before.
