19/03/20 - An Important Update Regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) 19th March 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 increased threat of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

As you know, the Coronavirus outbreak is continuing to spread and is now described by international health authorities as a global pandemic. We are continuously monitoring the advice from the government, Public Health England (PHE) and the World Health Organisation (WHO).

We must act responsibly, more than ever before, during this very difficult period, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of both staff and customers alike.

It is with the above that we have had to make the difficult decision to close Walsingham Mill until further notice. The Mill will re-open when guidelines say it is safe to do so.

Much of our stock is available to purchase via this website where we are committed to maintaining our outstanding level of service. Please see:


The Management Team at Holt Antiques would like to encourage everyone of you to take care during this testing period for us all.

An English antique candlestand or lacemakers table originating from Cornwall.  Sourced privately.

Early 19th Century.

With shaped plank top above a single turned column supported with "stool" type base on four legs.

This stand is charming and has been made from various timbers from oak planks for the top to a walnut column (tfrom what would appear to be a recycled leg to a gateleg table!), the bottom "stool" support being made of varying timbers including ash.

Condition - all original aside the block supporting the top (made from pine) which is a later replacement although it does have a degree of age in its own right.
