Item Description

A superb Sorrento Ware Parquetry folio / folder. Richly decorated with the arms and crests of BARON MICKLETHWAIT PECKHAM of IRIDGE PLACE, Hurst Green, Sussex, England.

11th November 1834. Princess Victoria and her mother were in a horse driven carriage during an offical visit to Hastings. One of the horses reared and threatened to overturn the carriage. The second horse slipped into a foundation pit. Captain Sotherton Peckham Micklethwait rushed to the aid of the Princess and steadied the horses until they could be cut loose. It was a dangerous situation that could have been fatal.



Princess Victoria wrote in her diary, "We ought to be most grateful to Almighty God for his merciful providence in thus preserving us, for it was a very narrow escape..".



She wrote later, "The names of the two gentlemen who held the horse's head are Rev. Mr.Gould and Mr.Pegan (Peckham) Micklethwaite. The latter, I am sorry to say, was hurt, but not very matterially. The poor horse is cut ....the other.....very much frightened. We walked home".



The royal party was staying at Crown House, Hastings. This was the first house in Builder James Burton's plan for a new town called St Leonards-on-Sea. He had already built many fine Georgian buildings in London. Plans included a Bath House, hotels and a classical archway at the entrance.
