Lot 113 - Shepherds Hut
|Result||Sold - £4,480|
Historians have traced shepherd’s huts back to 1596, where an early text reads ‘the Shepheard hath his cabbin going upon a wheel for to move here and there at his pleasure’. They were a familiar site on the downlands of Southern England, existing as an important part of country people’s lives. The most famous shepherds hut in history is described by Dorset novelist Thomas Hardy in the opening chapters of Far from the Madding Crowd.
In recent years the traditional Shepherds hut has become the must have garden accessory. This delightful example certainly fits the bill. A far cry from the original models, this version is wired and ready to be plugged into the mains. Easily moved on large tyres, this useful hut is pleasantly decorated and would be a delight in any garden as an office, guest bedroom or child’s den. Offered to auction without reserve.
