Photos of a few of this morning’s new arrivals. Two late 19th.c. oriental carved rosewood marble top urn stands. Also a good early 19th.c. secretaire chest of drawers with excellent fitted interior.
It’s had a hard life but I rather like the battered charm of this cute little mid 18th.c oak dresser which is new in today. Great small size, having just two drawers rather than the more usual three. Good drawer fronts, elm linings and a very attractively shaped apron across the front and continuing around the sides, together with a lovely colour give it a great period look. Quite why it has ended up on castors I’m not sure, but they have been on a long time and in fact they lift it up to a useful hight.
Dimensions: width 61 “, depth 18″, height 30”.
Fresh on the floor this morning having been cleaned and polished in the workshop; this fine Edwardian mahogany bookcase c.1905. Super quality with a crisply carved cornice, elegantly shaped glazing bars and matched flame mahogany doors panels. Loads of space for books or display on adjustable shelves and useful cupboard space below. Excellent condition. Keys supplied.
Dimensions: width 79″, depth 16″, height 84″.
Good pair of late 19th.c. mahogany drawer pedestals c.1890. Ideal as bedside cabinets but would work just as well in a living room. Good quality with mahogany drawer linings, panelled back and original handles. Restored and repolished in our workshops.
Dimensions: width 17″, depth 22″, height 31″.
Best of three new wardrobes which have arrived this week is this splendid 19th.c. inlaid satinwood three-door c.1870. Fantastic mellow colour to the exterior, elegant inlays and original glass. With hanging to the left hand section and original shoe box in the base. The centre and right hand doors open to reveal a press cupboard fitted with sliding shelves above a chest of drawers. The slides could be removed to allow more space for hanging. Original throughout and exceptional quality. Stamped for the cabinet makers Thomas Turner of Manchester.
Dimensions: width 78″, depth 22″, height 84″.
New in today: Two fine pieces of oak furniture with a distinctly Arts & Crafts feel. Excellent quality, great handles on the bureau, love the pierced spades on the bookcase.
Not our bread and butter stock but I couldn’t resist the vintage charm of this wonderful collection of electric Hornby Dublo three rail c.1950. Produced by Maccano in the days before the switch to plastic, the track, both locamotives and all the rolling stock are all in metal. Beautiful condition with original packaging and a coupe of colour brochures.
A rare set of 12 late 19th.c. carved mahogany dining chairs including two good sized carvers. In need of new covers and a little restoration. I shall post again when they are finished.
