Rare example of a reversed engraving on glass, depicting Caroline of Brunswick, made c1821
Reverse glass printing is a process whereby a print is transferred to a sheet of glass, varnished and coloured to resemble an oil painting.
The Prince of Wales, son of King George III was introduced to his potential bride, Caroline of Brunswick out of need for money as he was in great debt. Caroline famously, short, fat, ugly and never changed her undergarments, and rarely washed. Her body odour was overwhelming.
Caroline was very popular with the London public whilst King George was not. Every day when attending the House of Lords her coach was escorted by the cheering mob. George IV’s Coronation was to be the 29th April 1821 but Caroline was told that she would not be taking part in it. Undaunted Caroline arrived at the door of Westminster Abbey on the day demanding to be admitted, but the doors were slammed in her face.
She died 19 days after her frustrated attempt to get into the Abbey and was buried in Brunswick, and on her coffin was inscribed… ‘CAROLINE THE INJURED QUEEN OF ENGLAND’.£900

Reclaimed Victorian Pine Floorboards£35 - £68 + VAT Per Square Metre. Width Dependent
Reclaimed Victorian Pine Floorboards
Random lengths. Boards priced according to width with the widest batches being the dearest. Widths from 4" - 10".
Victorian baltic pine is an adaptable and characterful timber whose lightly distressed patina lends itself to use in a wide variety of interiors. Traditionally the timber was used in factories, warehouses, terraced housing and even stables. It's a softwood with hard wearing character. Although the timber does mark and scratch more easily than hard woods, it's this ability to develop a unique patina that is sought after by patrons of the most sympathetic restoration works.
As our boards are often sourced from factories, warehouses and mills more often than not it is our Victorian Baltic Pine batches that have the longest lengths. So although our customers are not able to specify long lengths when ordering, with Victorian Pine floorboards you can be assured that there will be more long lengths than short.
The recent conversion of many historic industrial buildings for new updated purposes is something that those of us concerned with English Heritage might consider a shame, however one way to ensure that our proud industrial heritage is not forgotten is through the re use of flooring like this Victorian Baltic pine. The increase in desirability of the warehouse-loft look has meant that there is an increased amount of original pine boarding available for our customers, so good supply can always be ensured.
If you are lucky enough to already own a Victorian property then you may have noticed that almost all pine floorboards in Victorian homes look similar. And you would be right, most Victorian pine ranges from 5 1/2 inches to 6 3/4 inches wide. The same can be said for the batches we most commonly have in stock. This similarity of construction enables our customers to patch in small areas rather than replacing entire floors. The retention of original features where ever possible is a desirable factor when undertaking the restoration of period properties.
A characteristic of Baltic pine which is favoured by the Scandinavian aesthetic is how well the material responds to bleaching or white washing. The porous, absorbent qualities of this timber in relation to other harder woods mean it takes well almost all finishes, dark or light. However the use of finishes with most LASSCO reclaimed boards is not advised. We try to source batches of timber for their original finish and often turn away batches of timber that are recently finished or yellowing as a result of poor finishing in the past. Our Victorian pine boards are chosen for their naturally aged character and appearance and should be lightly matte waxed and sealed.£35 - £68 + VAT Per Square Metre. Width Dependent
