Old Stubbington House

Old Stubbington House, Hampshire, painted in oil on canvas and within the original late 18th /early 19th century gilt and gesso decorated frame.
o.s:19 3/8 in x 15 1/2 in
Old Stubbington House was founded as a school in 1841 by the Reverend William Foster and, perhaps due to its location and association with the navy, the School became known as ‘the cradle of the navy’. The academic researcher into the history of education, Donald Leinster-Mackay, records that ‘no school had stronger ties with the Royal Navy in the nineteenth century than Stubbington House’.  Constructed around 1715, supposedly with proceeds from contracts to supply the army and navy, the square Queen Anne house is seen here with its mid Georgian façade of 5 bays and 3 storeys in grey brick with red dressing and an open pedimented porch. It was situated around 1 mile from the Solent in around 50 acres of parkland, of which half was later used by Stubbington House School.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
