A mid 19th century composition stone fountain in 2 parts. The top part features a charming pair of cherubs, holding the fountain head. The base consists of a hexagonal plinth. Whether displayed as garden statuary or with running water, it is a classic well cast model, in superb condition.
19th century garden/park bench, the iron strapwork used to great effect in creating a comfortable seat. With a gently curved seat and back, and scrolled arm ends, it is an elegant model of the Victorian outdoor bench. It has been indoors for much of its life, as it is in remarkably good condition the painted surface can either be enjoyed with its slight deterioration or re-painted. Circa 1890.
Victorian Croquet Game. The boxed set comprises 4 mallets with lignum vitae heads, 4 lignum vitae balls, 2 wooden posts and 6 iron hoops. Recalling summer days in the garden, this antique game comes neatly in its pine box with carrying handles. Circa 1900
19th century glass obelisk, cut and painted on the reverse to create the image of a garden urn with flowers. There is one shallow chip to the left bevelled side (about 5 cm down from apex) and 2 very small chips to the corners of the apex, otherwise it has survived very well. Circa 1880.
Probably the original Swing Ball Game! Made of wood and brass, of superb quality, it is broken down into sections that store easily in its box. Iron stays anchor the main pole to the ground, securely held in place with iron pegs. The ball has been replaced. It is a wonderful way to get the whole family active in the garden! Circa 1920
A rare chance to enjoy the Victorian park/garden bench with this sturdy, well preserved example. The scrolled metal frame is in excellent condition. The wooden slats are all replaced, following the identical design of the original slats. Painted green, this is an iconic reminder of summer, an enhancement to any open space.
