    19th century four poster bed, entirely upholstered in velvet the elaborate cornice with scroll work. A flared upper edge and surmounted with flambe finials. The bed has come from Rathbeale Hall, Swords, Co Dublin the property of Prince and Princess Azamat Guirey..see Desmond Guinness and Jacqueline O'Brien 'Great Irish House and Castles'

    The site of Rathbeale Hall or Rickanhore has been inhabited since early times. Originally it was owned by the Blakeney or Blackeney family. George Blackeney took the King’s side with Luke Netterville in the rebellion of 1641 and was dispossessed of Rickanhore, which was then granted to the Plunkets. The Plunkets lived here until 1751 when the house was sold to Hamilton Gorges to cover debts. Hamilton Gorges had married an heiress named Catherine Keating, and they had the house extensively renovated, and re-named Catherine’s Court. Their only son, Richard had succeeded his father as member of parliament after his father’s death. His only daughter married Sir Marcus Somerville, but they had no male heir. He severed his connection with Swords after the Act of Union, and he donated his £5,000 compensation money to the founding of the Borough School.

    Windsor House Antiques

    Established in Leeds, Yorkshire in 1957 by our chairman D Kevin Smith, Windsor House Antiques has grown from a small one-man operation into a globally recognised company. In 1999 it was decided to relocate the showrooms to London in order to attract more overseas clientele but still keeping warehousing and the core of the workshops in Leeds. In 1999 an opportunity arose to purchase a second company, Berengar Antiques, operating from significant premises in Northamptonshire. Barnwell Manor, a former royal residence, offers an ideal opportunity to present stock in a period setting and is open strictly by appointment. The company is able to offer, in its combined locations, over 30,000 square feet of stock, both restored and unrestored, to trade and private clients. We also have a Helicopter pad at Barnwell Manor. Its “in house” interior design and research division works closely with private clients as well as established design companies. Almost all restoration is carried out on site with only small and highly specialised restoration given to craftsmen outside the company. Stock items range from £100 to nearly one million pounds with the emphasis on quality and condition. All of our items are chosen for their quality, authenticity, colour of wood, graining, style and line. Hopefully this comes across in the images on our website. However please feel free to contact us for a full condition report for any of the items. The companies are members of LAPADA, where Kevin Smith acted as vice chairman for 23 years, and also CINOA a confederation of leading antique dealers and adheres to both organisations strict codes of practice.
