As a mule is a cross between a donkey and a horse so a mule chest is a combination of a coffer and a chest of drawers.

Lots of good period detail with a thumb molded top, mahogany crossbanding, rope twist stringing, quarter coloumns, oak panelled sides, oak drawer linings, shaped skirt and original bracket feet. Excellent colour and condition, restored and repolished in our workshops.

Back after a good break and eager to see what new treasures await, this was what caught my eye first when I got to the shop this morning. A fine piece of advertising memorabilia and an impressive size – five feet wide by three feet tall. In painted fibreglass or similar on a timber board, designed to hang against a wall.
Unlikely to be anymore posts this week as the blog is away for half term. Shop still open as usual, new things arriving everyday.
Delighted to be able to bring you another splendid local clock by a lesser known member of the Owen family of Llanrwst, the most celebrated family of Welsh clock makers. A fine longcase clock with eight day works by William Owen of Llanrwst c.1810. William was the younger brother of the better known Watkin Owen and, together with another brother David, took over the family business upon Watkin’s death in 1809. Attractive painted face decorated with birds and featuring a working date wheel. Excellent oak case of particularly good colour and finish with turned columns, brass mounts and distinctive ogee molding and ‘slap on’ panel to the base; both vernacular details typical of Conwy valley cabinet making.
Inside the door carries a signed, dated and numbered label from the survey of Llanrwst clocks carried out by Colin Brown in collaboration with the Welsh Folk Museum at St Fagans in preparation for his book The Clockmakers of Llanrwst.
A fine Welsh clock insuperb condition, the works have been cleaned and overhauled and are sold with a twelve month guarentee.
Dimensions: height 87″, width (at hood) 20″, depth 10″.
