Benches

Coalbrookdale are famous for their quality and are the Rolls Royce of cast iron. We have had over the years many examples of the different style benches that they produced. Fern & Blackberry was a very popular pattern. Rarer patterns like the Gothic, Horse Chestnut, Water plant, Nasturtiam are sought after by collectors and are a very good investment.

They also made tables, boot scraper, garden urns and a variety of cast iron items.

There are several different styles of benches that would fit with most gardens some with lovely flowing curved designs and some with straight lines. Matching tables and chairs are also available. They are easy to maintain and get better with age.

UK Architectural are always on the lookout for good stone benches as these compliment the stone urns and will add a very classical, formal  look to any garden.

Statuary Items

 

Garden statues add interest and character to a garden.

The first known use of garden ornaments became common in the Western Cultures.

Ancient Roman gardens have been excavated and many examples have been dug up from Pompeii.

A statue looks wonderful in little follies and can add great value to a property.

The Victorian and Georgian period had some wonderful statues many gracing stately homes and gardens.

Formal statues of maidens, cherubs, putti and Greek gods were very popular in these times as well as biblical figures and angels.

These were often made from lead, stone or reconstituted stone and even terracotta. 

They were life size and were often raised on plinths. Many are used as a focal point in a garden.

Animals were also popular from sporting game to lions and eagles.

Monumental statues were a sign of wealth and prosperity.

Chinese themes add great interest to a garden from stone temples and lanterns used with the right type of plants you could be transported to another country.

Busts on a wall or pier can also look striking.

Water Features and Fountain’s

Water features are very popular in gardens past and present. The sound of water is very soothing and relaxing and most gardens will have a water feature of some kind. Grand driveways have a central water fountain and look magnificent.

Fountains can be both grand and simple in style. They will often depict children with animals such as a cherub holding a turtle or fish. Simple two or three tier bowls where the water will flow from one bowl down to the other look just stunning.

Fountains are often built inside a circular shaped surround for the water to fall into.

Lead, stone and cast iron were popular materials for fountains to be made from.

A garden can be brought alive by the introduction of a fountain or water feature.

Some of the most important and impressive water fountains can be found around the country at our National Trust properties and large country houses. There is something magical about watching a water fountain in action making them one of the favourite spectacles for a visitor to do whilst visiting gardens and country homes.

Bird Baths

Reclaimed bird baths are a wonderful item to have in a garden not only providing sanctuary and water to birds and wildlife they are also a fantastic piece to have in the garden. At UK Architectural Antiques we love sourcing reclaimed, old, vintage bird baths and are always on the lookout for something special. Bird baths are made from several materials carved natural stone; cast using reconstituted stone, terracotta and even cast iron.

Reclaimed antique bird baths can make wonderful gifts and we have sold many over the years for retirement presents and special birthdays.

Reclaimed bird baths are normally around 2ft tall and can fit into most garden spaces from a small terrace garden to more formal gardens.

The most popular are reclaimed stone bird baths which would have been carved out of local stone. You can tell where a piece would have originated from by the colour of the stone. We have had some truly stunning pieces over the years.

Cotswolds stone is yellow in colour, bath stone is a creamy beige colour whereas red stone would have come from the midlands. Garden ornaments and statues would have been carved from local stone by a local stone mason.

Staddle Stones

Reclaimed antique Staddle stones were carved from local stone by local stone masons. They did a very important job back then and were not for ornamental use like they are today. They did a very important job.

They were originally used as supporting bases for granaries, hayricks and game larders. The staddle stones lifted the granaries above the ground thereby protecting the stored grain from vermin and water seepage.

They were a clever design as the vermin could not get over the lip of the top of the staddle stone. The top was separate from the base and gave a structure that had a mushroom appearance. 

Reclaimed original salvaged antique staddle stones are in stock available For delivery next day 

Today they are used for decorative pieces in the garden and can look stunning as a centre piece. They can often be seen to line a driveway making a real entrance to any property.

A lot of country houses and national trust properties will have them positioned around the garden. They add structure and interest to a garden.

Covered in moss and lichen they are a site to behold.
