UNSIGNED paintings have been discovered in a St Albans house while a couple were preparing to move home.

The two pieces of artwork were found when Professor Geraint John and his wife Jane were getting ready for the move from their home at 125 Verulam Road to nearby Fishpool Street.

They had no contact with the people who owned their home before they moved in more than 30 years ago, but they believe that they operated a pottery in the outhouse where the paintings were found.

Professor John, an architect, is hoping that the family or owners of the paintings will come forward to claim them.

He said: "If anybody knows these people it would be lovely if they could have them."

Anyone who thinks the paintings belong to them should contact the Herts Advertiser on 01727 865165 or email hertsad@archant.co.uk
