04/09/20 - An Important Update Regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) 4th September 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 took 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 September 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.

Follower of Charles Beaubrun (1604-1692) - A Mid 17th Century French School Antique Oil on Canvas Portrait of a Young Aristocratic Gentleman

  • Reference : 2343
  • Availability : Available Now
  • Dimensions : 41 /12" x 34" including frame
  • Price : £2750


A very fine quality Mid-17th century French School portrait of a young aristocrat, depicted seated at half length in fashionable attire, painted within a feigned oval.

Painted with exceptional quality with very fine detailing especially to the lace, velvet and folds of the clothing.

The unknown sitter, undoubtedly a son of a senior French aristocrat, carries the typical powdered face tones of the 17th century court.

The work is close to the hand of the distinguished French portrait painter, Charles Beaubrun (1604-1692), who was most active in Paris during the decades of 1630-1670. A favourite painter in the courts of King Louis XIII and King Louis XIV, he painted many portraits of reigning Queens and the nobility.

An exceptional work of superior quality and rarity.

Condition - The painting is oil on canvas and is genuinely very presentable. The painting has been relined and restored, with some areas showing more obvious signs of overpainting and retouching. The frame is a more recent example and in presentable condition.
