Plaster ceiling in Newhouse Hall, Sheepridge, Fartown, Huddersfield
This is in the main ground-floor room. English Heritage and Pevsner both state that it is late 17C, but an expert on ceilings has identified it as being the work of Thomas Gumby, who worked in this part of Yorkshire during the period 1620 to 1650. This would correspond to modernisation of the house by Thomas Brooke IV, a wealthy clothier, who probably wanted the latest fashion: a hall with a ceiling rather than open to the rafters. There are two putti (child angels) in the centre, an pineapples (symbol of prosperity) around the edge.
