13/06/20 - An Important Update Regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) 13th June 2020

Holt Antique Furniture Ltd and its related Companies would like to update you on what's happening at our antiques store “Holt Antiques at Walsingham Mill” with the continued threat of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Dear Customers...

As you are probably aware, the Coronavirus outbreak has caused unprecedented turmoil to the retail shop / High Street sector since 23rd March 2020 with all non-essential shops being forced to close. The UK Government has taken the decision to allow this sector which, includes Antiques Stores, to re-open from 15th June 2020, but only if we are able to meet specified criteria set out in the "COVID 19 HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES". 
We must act responsibly during this challenging period, to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of both our staff and customers continues.

With the above in mind, we have had to make the difficult decision to keep our store at Walsingham closed for the time being to the general public. This situation will again be reviewed at the end of July 2020.

MUCH OF OUR STOCK IS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE VIA OUR WEBSITE (WITH NEW STOCK ADDED WEEKLY) where we are committed to maintaining our outstanding level of service. Please see:


The Management Team at Holt Antiques would like to thank every one of you for your continued support during this time.

Robin Dunkley

Managing Director, Holt Antique Furniture Ltd

  • Reference : 1439
  • Availability : Sold
  • Dimensions : 7 1/4" x 4 1/2" excluding frame

A fine late 16th Century North European School "Old Master" miniature on hammered copper panel approx 7 1/4" x 4 1/2" excluding frame in the manner of Adam Elsheimer, Circa. 1580. Elsheimer himself was an artist who produced works like this on copper panels and the style is suggestive of an artist who like him, originated in Northern Europe but spent time in Rome.  

Philip Mould of BBC1's Antiques Roadshow has very kindly reviewed the images of this painting for us and we have documentary evidence of this which we can provide to the buyer. We are indebted to Philip for his advice regarding this painting.

The painting denotes the Virgin Adoring the Sleeping Christ Child. Other Old Masters have also have painted similar images including Sandro Botticelli and Filippo Lippi.

The painting bears no signature.

Condition - paint losses as per images (remaining paint is stable) and presented in an early 19th Century gesso frame (again with losses).
