Circa 1890's

Size 1.42m tall x 68cm square.

Here we have one of the most exquisite garden antiques on the market today in New Zealand we believe. It would be hard to find another one like this anywhere!

This circa 1890’s roof ventilator is from Barriball house which was situated on Kitchener road in Waiuku. The Barriball’s quickly made a name (and money) for themselves upon arriving in New Zealand.

Charles, Ann with their three young children, John, Samuel and Sophia departed from Plymouth on 'The Duke of Westminster' on December 4th, 1842. They landed in Auckland on April 1st, 1843 after a passage of 128 days.

On May 30th, 1856, Charles took up land at Waiuku by Crown Grant, becoming the owner of 145 acres, 1 rood and 20 perches. He named the property Eden Hill. Eight months later, he took up a further grant of 442 acreas of land in the Parish of Waiuku East. This area was originally called Waitangi and was later renamed Pukeoware.

Sadly, the building no longer exists nor have any photo’s every surfaced but local historians all agree Barriball  House was one of the finest in Franklin.

I am oh so pleased that I stumbled across Elsie Wolfe Wondrous Antiques! I am smitten by their carefully curated collections and love my purchases. The service was incredible - fast and friendly. Probably just as well they're at the other end of the country or it could get very dangerous! Thank you, William and Lily - love your work.

Elsie Wolfe is a pretty creative variation on standard stores. It is an antique store with youth behind it. See you again soon!

We purchased a vintage bank of drawers from Lily and William and they are absolutely stunning. This lovely couple have a really good eye for sourcing authentic and interesting antique and vintage treasures. They are always great to deal with and we are more than happy to recommend them to others.
