Information

A stunning, large and rare pair of late 16th Century English antique oak carved panels, possibly once forming part of an overmantle.

Sourced within Norfolk, England.

By repute these panels may have been connected to Sir Edward Coke, founder of the famous Holkham Estate in 1609 and may have adourned the former Manor House known as Hill Hall on the Neals Manor (which was swept away during the 30 year re-development of the site commenced by Edward's son Thomas in 1734 follwing his return from the Grand Tour). We understand that it was Sir Edward who adopted the symbol of the Ostrich in the late 16th Century and it is to this period that these panels date. We only have verbal provenance (by repute) and no documentary proof that these panels originate from the estate however the early form of the Ostrich which Coke adopted as the family symbol does tie in along with the locality of the source of these carvings. Whatever their background, these are superb!

The top of each panel is decorated with a side profile head and torso figure above foliate swags, each encircling an ostrich.

Condition - traces of later surface stain.  Some minor remains of earlier polychromy underneath the surface stain. Four original iron studs to each corner of both panels remain.  The timbers are supp0rted on later cross stretchers verso.

These panels display incredibly well.
