West Riding Election

Dating from the 1841 General Election, this sign was used to announce the results of the votes cast for the different candidates. Hon John Stuart Wortley, Edmund Beckett Denison, Viscount Morpeth and Viscount Milton stood for the West Ridings of Yorkshire constituency. Painted on cloth which is then mounted on a pine panel. Some loss and wear to the material, consitent with age. Mounted on later period style stand with brass finial. Can be removed from stand if required to hang on the wall. From the estate of an ex-MP.

Some of the results from the 1841 General Election were contested, including the West Ridings of Yorkshire. As such some records are different from these figures. Source: Ollivier's Parliamentary Register of Contested Elections, London, 1841. pg 35.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We work from a converted industrial unit in the characterful, vibrant and independently-minded community of Totnes, in beautiful South Devon.
