A solid market persists for the many fine examples of garden decoration that adorned the country houses of Britain in the 18th century, Regency and Victorian eras. The range of iron garden furniture made by firms such as Coalbrookdale or Carron look as good today as they did in Victorian England, so too the neoclassical marble figure groups and furniture of the Grand Tour era.
Sworders 2018 sale of the contents of North Mymms Park included some very fine examples that sold for spectacular sums.
Increasingly too there is a healthy market for later, but suitably weathered, 20th century pieces plus the large geological specimens and examples of modern sculpture that sit well in the outdoor setting.
