Plea over mys­tery painter

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

MYS­TERY sur­rounds art­work by a for­mer painter and dec­o­ra­tor from the town.

The paint­ing, from 1910, is signed by WH Pow­nall with the words ‘dec­o­ra­tors, Jor­dan­gate’ on the back.

And staff at Adam Par­tridge Auc­tion­eers & Val­uers would like to find out more about the paint­ing and its artist be­fore the pic­ture goes on sale in March.

Oliver Hancock, from the auc­tion­eers, based on Withy­fold Drive, said: “We’ve got a paint­ing from 1910 by a WH Pow­nall that’s not par­tic­u­larly valu­able but writ­ten on the back is ‘WH Pow­nall, Dec­o­ra­tors, Jor­dan­gate, Mac­cles­field.

“We thought it might be in­ter­est­ing to read­ers of the Macc Ex­press and won­dered if per­haps any read­ers could shed any light on who WH Pow­nall was.”

The auc­tion takes place on March 3 and 4 and the paint­ing has an es­ti­mate of £20- £40.
