Above the panelling are a selection of the small size hera;dic shields. By the window a shell Mid Stern displays books and trophy cups. Photo by Bob Smith.

The boat point umbrella stand above is a shell version. Both styles have a brass banded, semicircular rail with which to hold your canes, sticks and umbrellas. However it should be noted that this interesting piece has frequently been purchased for use as a snooker cue holder! A sign written name of your choice can be applied to the side of the boat at no extra cost, otherwise we will supply with the name of our choice - Driftwood, Flotsam, Jetsom, Ripple, Ajax, Nelson etc., etc..

 

Shell boat point umbrella stand: RGT 13 £350. Clinker boat point umbrella stand: RGT 14 £400

 

The 3-oar umbrella stands are made form original rowing oars which surround a miniature ships life ring which is designed to hold your canes etc.. Below the finial at the top, we have turned a piece of wood which is similar in shape to the leather fittings of an old oar designed to stop the oar slipping out of the boat's rollock/rowlock, upon this, three cast brass hooks are attached. Numerous coats can be hung without any chance of the stand toppling! Two versions are available - one where the blade part of the oar is used at the base, and the other where the handles are used at the base.

3-oar umbrella stand with handles: RGT 16 £175. 3-oar umbrella stand with blades: RGT 15 £275
