photoblog image Ickworth House 7/7

Ickworth House 7/7

On the way home from our Suffolk holiday we called in at Ickworth House, a National Trust property just outside Bury St.Edmunds.

 

The final shot from Ickworth House was another one taken in a corridor.  I just found these two portraits very attractive and the stand for the one on the left is delightful, I wonder if at one time it might have been in a church.

 

The National Trust website for Ickworth is here

 

This is the final picture from our Suffolk holiday, tomorrow you will see something completely different.

This is beautiful art Brian and you have brought such detail to the frame and pedestal in this shot .....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Peter, I wish I'd made some notes at the time about these, they are lovely in real life.
Hi Brian... Just took a look at your 7/7 Ickworth House pix. This is my favourite!!! Do you think the gold over the black is gold leaf & how old do you think this pedestal framed painting is? Man... I love such ornate work like this. Great detail.
Brian Walbey: THanks Jacquelyn. I can't rtemember the ages of these, I was silly enough not to take any notes but they are certainly several hundred years old. I suspect it isn't gold, where it stands is too much in the public area. Thanks for your comment.

Very ornate Brian but too fussy for me; I'm more contemporary but each to their own. A fine capture, though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, it was the unusualness of the standing item that attractedd me.
very nice art, nicely captured
Brian Walbey: Thanks Derek.
What a beautiful way to end this very enjoyable series, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Beverly, I thought these were both lovely items.
