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.

We are delighted to offer for sale this absolutely charming oil on canvas genre painting entitled "The Cherry Vendor" - attributed to William Collins, RA (1788-1847).

A London born artist, Collins was an English landscape and genre painter.  During the 19th Century, his works were more sort after than those of world famous artists, namely Constable and Turner.  He was an informal pupil of George Morland and in 1807 entered the schools of the Royal Academy.  In 1809 he was awarded a medal in the life school.

He provided paintings to many high profile individuals of the day including Sir Robert Peel and the Marquis of Stafford.

Well travelled throughout his career in both England, Scotland and further a field in Europe, he sadly passed away in February 1847.

Examples of his work are held by the British Museum, Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum in addition to many other locations.
