A stunning and hugely impressive piece of English Gothic Revival church architecture.
Removed from a Northumbrian cathedral during major renovation circa mid-20th Century. Said cathedral was designed by Augustus Pugin. (Please get in touch with us directly for further provenance.)
Exquisitely carved by hand from oak.
A pulpit's canopy.
Created 1842-44, there is evidence this would originally have been adorned with gold paint.

There are some missing sections of carving and the back is flat as this was place against the cathedral wall, likely in the quire. However the impact viewed from the facing corner is nothing short of incredible.

This piece has passed through private hands several times before coming to us. Whatever written receipts there were for this unique piece of Gothic Revival, English architecture have long since vanished. It had been used as decor in a private club for some decades, without anyone caring to research its history until we found it standing in the corner, waiting to be discovered.

Height: 12ft.
2ft of the top section can be removed to lower the height if necessary.
