Andrew Singleton has put together more than 100 pieces for his Christmas Selling Exhibition at Suffolk House Antiques, in Yoxford, including a 15th century English carving of the Adoration of the Magi, a 15th century East Anglian roof angel and an alabaster Nativity panel.

Elsewhere, there is a mid-Georgian period crossbow, an early 18th century Delft punch bowl and two sets of four Delft wet drug jars.

Amongst the oak, visitors will find a mid-16th century English linenfold panel chest, an Elizabethan child’s coffret, a mule chest with a carved inscription from 1731 and a George II bookcase, while in other timbers there is a George II burr elm library desk and a similarly dated walnut shepherd’s crook armchair.

The exhibition continues until Saturday, December 19.
