New Stock

A busy day today with lots of new goodies arriving including a great suite of Italian bedroom furniture which I will post images of tomorrow. In the meantime here are some pictures of an unusual Victorian marble top walnut side cabinet and a late 19th.c. carved oak ‘monk’s bench’ both new in today.

Come on Cymru! – Guess The Score, Win The Chair

Wales take on France in the semi-final of the rugby world cup tomorrow morning. In honor of the big match we are offering this original 1969 Prince of Wales Investiture chair to anyone who successfully predicts the scoreline.
Some four and a half thousand of the chairs were produced for the ceremony following which they were sold, guests having first refusal. The remainder were sold to the general public and it seems quite a few remained here in North Wales. In vermillion stained beech and bent plywood, the three feathers motif is impressed onto the back rest to prevent wear to the gilding.
Contact us via email with your predictions please.

Edwardian Stacking Bookcase by Minty.

We have a soft spot for the classic stacking office bookcase and try and buy them whenever we get the chance. They come in a variety of styles by different manufacturers. Most have the classic ‘lift and slide’ glass doors typical of the American firm Globe Wernicke. However, an interesting, and arguably more practical, two door design was used by the Oxford company Minty – a fine example of which is new in today.
Five stack mahogany bookcase by Minty with unusual leaded glass doors and a useful blind door cabinet in the base. Original throughout, with a maker’s lable and brass knobs. Excellent condition.
Dimensions: width 30″, depth 11″, height 70″.

New Stock.

Excuse the not so great photos and slightly last minute post but here are some images of some of the stock which arrived new this morning. Lots more images to follow next week including two good dresser bases, a wernicke bookcase, good mahogany chest of drawers and an Anglesey dresser.
