06/07/20 - 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.

Rare 18th Century English Antique Wrought Iron Game Stand - Provenance - Originating from the former game larder at The Gunton Park Estate, Norfolk

  • Reference : DG25
  • Availability : Available Now
  • Dimensions : Height in excess of 6 ft
  • Price : £1495

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.
