    An impressive and large baptismal font entirely carved from Ashburton Marble. This is a soft grey and blush pink, lightly veined marble with evidence of fossil remains of creatures, principally corals, crinoids and brachiopods, that lived in the Devonian Sea 360-380 million years ago, It was quarried in Devon in the west of England mainly during the 19th century. The deep, round font bowl sits on a sturdy circular column and is further supported by four tall Ashburton and Swedish Green Marble pillars. The whole font rests on it's original, octagonal stone base. English, late 19th century.

    Notes: Ashburton Marble is more accurately a form of limestone and not a true marble but was described as such as it was capable of taking a high polish resembling marble. It was brought to prominence in the Victorian era. In 1852 a Devon newspaper 'The Western Times', reported that some large blocks of marble had been excavated from quarries adjoining the ancient Stannary Town of Ashburton. It was suggested at the time that the marble be used for the making of chimneypieces as the veins and colour were considered very decorative and superior to that found in any other quarry in South Devon. It featured in many of of the great houses, buildings and churches throughout the country including Salisbury Cathedral. This marble was still being quarried at the Linhay Quarry into the late 20th century.

Antique furniture
Antique furniture is almost infinite in its variety. From the most humble of beginnings, furniture characterises its period, taking on the influences of the age.

For example, Victorian furniture represents the 19th century British interest in earlier periods, and the style of the furniture reflects the age’s influences, such as the Gothic, Renaissance and Jacobean eras. Antique oak furniture has endured the centuries, and remains very popular, especially in period, or country residences. Victorian furniture made of oak often emulated the 16th and 17th century style of fine furniture, to decorate the 19th century home in a revival style.

Antique French furniture
Antique French furniture also offers a large variety of styles, from the understated farmhouse style, where fruitwoods are simply carved and joined into tables, chairs and beds. Fine antique French furniture utilised the beauty of more exotic woods, such as mahogany, rosewood and kingwood and paired it with the gleaming ormolu mounts often seen on the opulent Louis XV furniture of the 18th century and later revivals. The later French Empire style was more neoclassical, and became sought after all over Europe.

Antique bedroom furniture
Antique bedroom furniture is an often overlooked area, but such a room can be transformed by the addition of period pieces. Whether antique beds to make a statement, or a pair of elegant and understated antique chairs, these details add character and depth. Antique bedroom furniture could also feature antique screens, an excellent way of creating a partition in a room for a dressing area or even a bath.

Antique tables and chairs
In a principal room, there are a few essential pieces of antique furniture that give the interior character. An antique table is an incredibly versatile antique, whether the smallest occasional table, or a grand antique dining table surrounded by a set of 19th century dining chairs. An antique chair is also a lovely way of introducing an antique, as they can be easily incorporated by upholstering them to suit the scheme of the room.
