Excellent quality and unusually large, 19th.c. cast iron garden urn on stand c.1880. Standing 40″ tall with a diameter of 30″. In need of a good stiff brush and pot of paint perhaps, but otherside in very good condition. A nice companion to the cast iron garden chairs featured here last week.
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″.
New on the floor today having been restored and relined in our workshops is this unusually small Edwardian mahogany bow front corner display cabinet. Solid brass centre molding and a useful little drawer in the waist.
Dimensions: depth to corner 18″, height 67″
Something for the retro and mid-century fans. A large 1960’s teak sideboard by the British makers Younger. Great design, loads of storage, excellent condition.
Dimensions: width 81″, depth 18″, height 29″.
An unusual new arrival last week was this small late 19th.c. Arts & Crafts style oak bookcase with original beaten copper or ‘Repoussé’ door panels c.1890. Very good quality with ajustable shelves and solid oak sides. Excellent colour and condition.
Dimensions: width 44″, depth 12″, height 55″.
Hello again everyone, back in the saddle after a week away and here’s a great piece to restart the blog with. Even though it splits into sections for ease of delivery I’m pretty glad I missed out on carrying this one upstairs! A very large and imposing Victorian mahogany three door breakfront bookcase c.1850. Glazed top with adjustable shelves over a useful cupboard base. Of superb quality with flame mahogany veneers laid onto solid mahogany groundwork, attractive carved scroll and flora detail, a good crisp cornice and solid mahogany sides. Beautiful colour and condition. Fully restored and French polished in the traditional manner. Keys supplied.
Dimensions: width 75″, depth 27″, height 100″.
Hope you have enjoyed today’s selection of goodies. To complete an eclectic mix here is a very stylish little Art Deco display cabinet. Great machine age design in and an attractive honey coloured walnut c.1930. This will probably be the last post for a week or so as I’m away again. In the meantime the shop is open as usual and doubtless there will still be plenty of new things arriving.
Fine set of eight cast iron garden chairs. Crisp casting and nicely aged. These are very good quality and heavy. They definately will not blow over – even in a Welsh summer!
Highlight of today’s new arrivals has to be this gorgeous little late Georgian mahogany chest on chest. Just 38″ wide and 62″ tall. Beautifully figured drawer fronts, with oak drawer linings and retaining the original brass swan neck handles. Excellent colour and condition.
A busy day today with lots of new stock arriving. A few images of the new arrivals here. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like further details.
