We don’t deal with a huge amount of antique pine but here is good little collection of found recently; stool, single drawer kitchen or dairy table and a very useful large painted kitchen cupboard.
Around the same time as lion’s head furniture (see this morning’s post) was popular with people who wanted to associate with the values of Olde England and the gothic, punters of more aestheic tastes were decorating their homes with furniture which reflected their fascination with Japan – at the time only recently opened up to trade with the West. A nice example of the style here in this small single drawer side table c.1900. With a shaped bamboo frame and a lacquered top, drawer front and shelf. Original throughout.
Dimensions: width 26″, depth 20″, height 30″.
Fine late 18th.c. oak five panel oak taven settle c.1790. Original through with attractively shaped panels and unusual cabriole legs.
Dimensions: width 72″, depth 26″,height 42″.
New for today, this splendid late 19th.c. oak pedestal desk c.1880. Exuberantly carved with lion’s heads and green man masks which form the handles on the drawer fronts. A good sized desk, just waiting for a new leather. Lion’s head furniture seems to have enjoyed a brief vogue in the late 19th.c, we ofter find the same motifs on a variety of furniture from the period.
Dimensions: width 48″, depth 30″, height 32″.
