Reach for the skies!

We’ve had a fun morning here trying to work out the best way to display this remarkable hand built replica aircraft. Discovered amongst stacks of interesting items (lots of junk and some treasure) stored in an long closed village store on Anglesey. Very nearly 14 feet in length, it must represent countless of hours of work by a very keen airplane enthusiast and model maker. Unfortunately whoever built it never got to compete the project and it remains unfinished and without the main wings. No matter, it still makes an impressive item – ideal for a travel or military theme pub perhaps? Tail wing and fin removable for transport.
Dimensions: length 165″. span of tail 98″, height of tail 50″.

Welsh Glazed Dresser or Bookcase.

Good example of a mid 19th.c. mahogany enclosed dresser or bookcase, produced here in North Wales and known locally as a cwpwrdd gwydr (glass cupboard), c.1860. A development of the classic open rack Welsh dresser, the cwpwrdd gwydr could be used as display for prized pieces of porcelain etc or as a bookcase (or a mix of the two). The glass doors affording extra protection from dust and dirt, whilst the use of mahogany rather than traditional oak was a statement of fashion and status.

Flared cornice, raised mouldings to the glazed doors, shaped drawer fronts and large shield shaped cupboard door panels in flame mahogany veneers, applied carved corbels to both pieces.
