04/09/20 - An Important Update Regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19) 4th September 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 continued threat of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Dear Customers...

As you are probably aware, the Coronavirus outbreak has caused unprecedented turmoil to the retail shop / High Street sector since 23rd March 2020 with all non-essential shops being forced to close. The UK Government took the decision to allow this sector which, includes Antiques Stores, to re-open from 15th June 2020, but only if we are able to meet specified criteria set out in the "COVID 19 HEALTH & SAFETY GUIDELINES". 
We must act responsibly during this challenging period, to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of both our staff and customers continues.

With the above in mind, we have had to make the difficult decision to keep our store at Walsingham closed for the time being to the general public. This situation will again be reviewed at the end of September 2020.

MUCH OF OUR STOCK IS AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE VIA OUR WEBSITE (WITH NEW STOCK ADDED WEEKLY) where we are committed to maintaining our outstanding level of service. Please see:


The Management Team at Holt Antiques would like to thank every one of you for your continued support during this time.

17th Century English Antique Delftware / Delft Charger, Most Probably Pickleherring Pottery, Southwark, London

  • Reference : 1918
  • Availability : Available Now
  • Dimensions : Diameter 13 1/2"
  • Price : £450


A stunning 17th Century blue and white English antique defltware charger most probably originating from the Pickleherring Pottery, Southwark, London, trading from circa 1618 until circa 1723.

The Pickleherring Pottery in Southwark was founded by Christian Wilhelm in around 1618 and continued to operate for about a century. After Wilhelm's death in 1630, the pottery passed to his son-in-law, Thomas Townsend (1630-c1645); then through the hands of Richard Newnham (c.1645-c.1684), probably Moses Johnson (c.1685-1695), John Robins (1695-1699) and Cleophas Wood (1700-1708); finally in 1708 it came under the management of Richard Grove, who with James Robins made the move to larger premises at Horsely Down between 1714 and 1723. Tin-glazed earthenware products associated with the Pickleherring Pottery include paving or floor tiles painted in polychrome with animals such as a fox or a camel or geometric patterns; wine bottles, posset pots, tankards and dishes, some decorated in blue with chequer pattern or 'bird on rock' designs; plates, mugs and cups; drug jars and ointment pots, some decorated with geometric designs in blue, manganese and yellow; bleeding bowls or porringers; some elaborately decorated 17thC chargers; salts and vases; candlesticks and chamber pots; and even some fragmentary figurines.

This fine charger is decorated in underglaze blue in a geometric foliate-type pattern.

Condition - rim frits and a very feint hairline crack (this is stable).  This charger displays very well.
