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.

We are delighted to offer for sale this absolutely charming oil on canvas genre painting entitled "The Cherry Vendor" - attributed to William Collins, RA (1788-1847).

A London born artist, Collins was an English landscape and genre painter.  During the 19th Century, his works were more sort after than those of world famous artists, namely Constable and Turner.  He was an informal pupil of George Morland and in 1807 entered the schools of the Royal Academy.  In 1809 he was awarded a medal in the life school.

He provided paintings to many high profile individuals of the day including Sir Robert Peel and the Marquis of Stafford.

Well travelled throughout his career in both England, Scotland and further a field in Europe, he sadly passed away in February 1847.

Examples of his work are held by the British Museum, Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum in addition to many other locations.
