A Pair of Deco

I really loved these deco sailing boat mirrors. Maylands. This is the second topless woman this week who seems to have trouble removing the apparel.

    “There she blows!”


  3. meccano101 says:

    I’m not familiar with nautical lingo, is this a ships sextant?


  4. Mecano, you might be better going with “rowlocks” or “barnacles on her bottom” I think.


  5. A rather disturbing laughing face (perhaps Chairman Mao?) off to the left which I don’t remember being there.


  6. meccano101 says:

    never the less, she has lovely eyes.


  7. Del Quant says:

    That brass lamp has clearly been inexpertly buffed. Tsk.


  8. meccano101 says:

    I don’t think she has finished buffing it, she is still holding the cloth.


  9. That’s a straightjacket.


  10. Greg Tangey says:

    Must’ve been cold at the time of painting..


  11. tomthrett says:

    she has a nice rack.


  12. lisa says:

    I think Margaret Court needs to see this, she obviously missed out in the 70’s and it’s never too late.


  13. Oh, I should have made it clear. This is Margaret Court. The handle of a tennis raquet is partly visible behind the ship. I think it was a raquet handle.


  14. Del Quant says:

    Nice rack, nice racquet…


  15. lisa says:

    Billie Jean King missed out then.

    just glancing at your reflection in the glass LA, where you perhaps carrying a set of bagpipes when you took this photo of the sailing ships?


  17. lisa says:

    Extraordinary how a 30-year-old painting has got the men of Perth so excited they can’t stand up.


  18. Del Quant says:

    Actually, I went and bought this painting immediately after I saw the image, and I’ve been ‘standing’ ever since…


  19. #17, yes, I was piping her on board.


  20. Anonymous Perthon says:

    Oh calm down people they’re clearly fake, FAKE – there is no way that mirrored finish could be so perfect after 50 years.


  21. Del Quant says:

    Actually, it’s also extraordinary how the Great Art of the 1970s obviously has a Proustian capacity to evoke a steady childhood diet of Benny Hill, Dick Emery, The Two Ronnies & Kenny Everett et al. Nudge nudge, wink wink, fnarr fnarr, phwoar!! etc, etc…


  22. Del, are you meaning for your name to be linked to a website? it’s not linked properly if so.


  23. Del Quant says:

    Nope. Much like the painting, I’m the product of someone’s fevered imagination circa 1971.


  24. CK says:

    Oh dear. Painting you say, Del Quant?

    I actually thought it was a quick snap of the shopkeep serving.
