Mysterious Blue

This rustic painted cabinet, new in today, is something of a mystery. It was found in mid Wales but it’s origins are unknown, and why is the carved upstand on the front rather than the back edge of the top? Whatever, its a good practical piece of storage for books or even kitchen ware and the colour and patina on the paint is fantastic.
Dimensions: width 61″, depth 18″, height 34″.

New Stock – Arts & Crafts.

Two good pieces of English Arts and Crafts furniture here, both new arrivals today. A delightful little oak bureau bookcase with glazed top and a really superb oak bedside cabinet with unusual Liberty & Co. style handles. No makers marks but clearly stamped with a Registration number to the door.

Early 19th.c. Oak Welsh Dresser.

Purchased locally and out on the floor this afternoon having been restored in our workshops, a fine example of the classic North Wales cottage dresser. This would have been produced on the island of Anglesey in the early years of the 19th.c. With three drawers above a cupboard base with dummy drawer fronts and well proportioned rack featuring Talwrn pattern inlaid detail to the cornice. Original brass knobs, backboards, floor and feet. Great patina and a lovely warm colour.
Dimensions: width 61″, depth 19″, height 80″.

New Stock

A nice group of items here all of which are fresh on the floor this afternoon. A fine regency cheval mirror and several useful little mahogany side cabinets. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like individual details.

Oak Chest from Croston Hall Lancashire.

A large and very sturdy mid 19th solid oak chest. Fitted to the top is a brass plaque dating the construction of the box from the ancient roof timbers of Croston Old Hall in Lancashire and dated 1858. The old hall was demolished in the mid 19th.c when a splendid new Croston Hall was built in the Gothic style for the De Trafford family. This was in turn also demolished in the mid 1960’s.
Dimensions: width 37″, depth 23″, height 22″.


Just a touch perhaps. It may look like this gilded brass and onyx coffee table has been liberated from one of Gaddafi’s palaces but it was actually found locally this afternoon. High kitch, and heavy too!
Dimensions: length 48″, depth 22″, height 18″.
