Information

A stunning 18thC English antique wrought iron game stand of large proportions standing in excess of 6ft tall! Carl, one of our members of staff, kindly agreed to stand next to the stand to give client's an idea of its size.  Thank you Carl!

 

Originating from the game larder of the Gunton Park Estate, Norfolk, the former country seat of the Harbord family.  

 

The manor house was originally designed by Matthew Brettingham in 1742, and extended by Samuel and James Wyatt. The house and park remain albeit the buildings have been converted into twenty private dwellings and are now under different ownership.

 

The stand formed part of the sale of the contents of the house in the 1980's and had remained with the same buyer until recently when we were fortunate to be able to transfer it in to our ownership.

 

The stand is supported on a tripod base and comprises a beautiful twisted central column, the iron twisted in four different directions, as it travels up the stem.  There are three tiers of hanging hooks, each again constructed from twisted iron with scroll to each base. The bottom tier has three hangers; the central tier has four hangers; and the top a further three (there were originally four to the top tier however one is missing).  The original drip pan also remains.

 

This stand could be used as both a game stand or could make an impressive candelabrum (the previous owner was using it for the latter).

 

Condition - surface rust and pitting.  Top tier is missing one hanging hook.
