Chinese Urn Stand.

Once a regular arrival here at the warehouse it’s doubtless testiment to the strength of the Chinese market that it has been sometime since we have had one of these oriental urnstands in stock.

Wirework Plant Stand.

Delightful late 19th.c. wire work conservatory or hallway plant stand c.1890. Two tier stand with fabulous decorative wire work detail featuring hearts, scrolls and trefoils. Unusually, it is raised on brass castors meaning it could also function as a trolley. Excellent condition.

Maurice Adams ‘Grosvenor’ Sideboard.

Stylish Art Deco sideboard by the celebrated English designer Maurice Adams c.1930. From Adams’ ‘Grovesnor’ range, in what the Victoria and Albert Museum (who hold a smaller version of this piece in their collection) refer to as a ‘Streamlined Georgian’ style, a wonderful example of British designers conflicted response to Modernism at this time. Drawing on traditional furniture design it features two drawers flanked with cupboards on each side but of sleek, rounded and curvacious form with a very unusual dished top. Other than the Georgian pattern handles, Adams eschews applied decoration carving and moldings here in favour of highly figured and polished Pomelle veneers. Simiarly the shaped apron and legs are a simplified and streamlined version of the Georgian originals. Presented in very good original and unrestored condition. With original Maurice Adams Ltd stamp to the rear, also a handwritten label inscribed ‘MA Ltd Own Stock’ and the serial number  533c. Key supplied.

Dimensions: width 60″, depth 20″, height 37½”.
