Cotswolds dealer Manfred Schotten is well known internationally for his comprehensive stock of sporting antiques and from October 11 to 25 he holds a selling exhibition at 109 High Street, Burford, entitled The Sporting Gentleman, giving a flavour of the country lodge of the period.

Mr Schotten is a fravourite of decorators who want a country house atmosphere and this show recreating the Lodge will find favour with those the world over who decorate in this quintessentially English look.

This selection from the show, which is part of the Cotswold Antique Dealers Association members’ series of exhibitions (see Dealers’ Diary), features a mutton leather gun case, a hunting flask, boot pulls, copper hunting horn, leather magazine case and a novelty equestrian clock. Just the thing for an “English” hunting lodge in Aspen or Beverly Hills.
