Tramp Art

imageSome of the best pieces found during buying trips are tramp art objects. They are usually made from old discarded boxes and wood fragments. The artists would use crude tools to carve geometric forms and patterns into their pieces. The originality used in every box, frame, and model is what draws the collector, a piece is never the same as the last. It’s these qualities that make collecting tramp art so exciting.

Below are a few pieces from our tramp art collection –
