    Pair of Canton porcelain lamps with applied 'one hundred antiques'.

    Canton porcelains are Chinese ceramic wares made for export in the 18th to the 20th centuries. The wares were made, glazed and fired at Jingdezhen but decorated with enamels at Canton (Guangzhou) in southern China prior to export by sea through that port.
    The 'Hundred Antiques' design is an important development in Chinese art marking the transition of the Ming to Qing periods in the mid-seventeenth century. The collapse of the Ming (1368-1644), the last native Chinese dynasty, and the establishment of the Manchu Qing dynasty (1644-1911) was a politically and intellectually turbulent chapter in Chinese history. The 'hundred antiques' emerge from this period, symbolising the continuity of Chinese culture. The design consists of a collection of culturally significant objects: books, the implements of writing together with related objects such as brush and water containers, archaic bronze vessels, porcelain, musical instruments and pastimes such as the game of go. Rarely totalling one hundred items, this figure probably simply represents a large number, as in the 'hundred names', a term used to describe the Chinese nation.

    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.
