Guys Cliffe Warwickshire
Condiment Tray c1820

Henshall Guys Cliffe Warwickshire Condiment Tray c1820

Imperial: 10.5 ins x 8.5 ins
Metric: 26.5 cm x 21.5 cm

A lovely condiment or spice tray, which originally would have had five small lidded containers. This view of Guys Cliffe is taken from Vol III of The Antiquarian and Topographical Cabinet by Storer and Greig, published 1808. Guy's Cliffe is a hamlet in the civil parish of Leek Wootton and Guy's Cliffe just outside Warwick. The Cliffe is a sandstone outcrop, which overlooks the River Avon, named after the 10th Century Guy of Warwick, who lived the life of a penitent in a cave in the Cliffe. Samuel Greatheed, MP for Coventry, bought the estate in 1751 and built a house in the Palladian style. His son Bertie extended the house in the early 1800s. It passed by descent into the Heber-Percy family, who sold it in 1946. During the 1950s the house began a slide into dereliction and today is a ruin. The house and its setting are depicted in beautiful detail on the stand and the border consists of vignettes of the house and grounds. No backstamp. Light all over crazing with some discolouration.
