    A very fine George III period Cuban mahogany four pillar dining table with demilune ends with ebony line inlay, on high swept reeded supports. Wonderful colour and proportions.

    Provenance: by repute purchased in 1802 by Captain John Worth (d. 1835) from Oakley Park, Suffolk. Thence by descent to his son-in-law Admiral Sir Baldwin Wake Walker.
    Thence by descent until sold by Sotheby's Cape Town, 14 April 1986, lot 170.
    Purchased by the current owner from Sotheby's London Friday 15 September 2000, lot 57.
    Captain John Worth lived at Oakley, Suffolk, England. He gained the rank of Captain in the service of the Royal Navy. Mary Catherine Sinclair Worth (d. 1889) was the daughter of Captain John Worth and Catherine Sinclair. She married Admiral Sir Baldwin Wake-Walker (1802-1876) who was created 1st Baronet Wake Walker of Oakley House in 1856.
    Oakley Park, as a house, is old Hoxne Hall of the Maynards rebuilt and renamed. In 1654 Robert, brother of Sir Humphrey Style built the Hall. Some time after that the manor of Hoxne is described as "the inheritance of Thomas Maynard" who was the grandson of the second Lord Maynard of Easton Lodge. Thomas Maynard was described as having been "seated at Hoxne Hall which he rebuilt in an elegant manner" by Morant in his History of Essex (Country Life, , January 4 1908, p.22). After Thomas Maynard's death in 1742, Hoxne fell into the general Maynard estates in the time of Charles, sixth Baron and first Viscount Maynard. Charles left Hoxne to Thomas Hesilrige. In 1817 Hoxne reverted to the Viscount of that day, Thomas' nephew, who in 1810 had married a niece of Matthias Kerrison of Bungay. Their son, Edward Kerrison (b.1774) inherited the estate. Edward joined the army in 1796 and obtained captaincy of the 7th Hussars in 1798, and was knighted in 1815. Sir Edward remodelled Hoxne Hall almost to the extent of rebuilding it, the only room left intact was a small drawing room decorated by Italian artists. Oakley Park was one of the early commissions entrusted to Sydney Smirke. The second Sir Edward married a daughter of the Earl of Ilchester, but with his death in 1886 the male line ended and the estate passed to Edwards's sisters. Emily Kerrison's (Countess Stanhope and Edward's middle sister) grandson held the earldom in 1908. Agnes (the youngest sister) became Lady Bateman and was the mother of the Lord in 1908 and yet she survived to hold the manors of Oakley and Brome at that time. Oakley Park was destroyed in the 1930s.

    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.
