Edwardian Red Walnut Bookcase

Newly arrived yesterday afternoon this large, very good quality Edwardian red walnut bookcase. With adjustable shelves behind glazed doors over a two drawer cupboard base with unusual carved doors. In good condition, would benefit from being freshly polished. I shall post again when it has been done.
Dimension: width 48″, depth 19″ height 93″.

Large Georgian Sideboard c.1810.

Some images here of a venerable Georgian mahogany sideboard which arrived late on Friday afternoon. With two deep oak lined drawers with original dividers for bottles and wonderful tamboured slides on the top compartment which provided space for glasses – this is the Georgian equivalent of the mini-bar! Except it’s not very mini, almost 7 foot long and 2’6″ deep. In need of a little cosmetic restoration but generally in good usable condition. Good mellow colour and lots of nice detail; reeded legs, inlaid drawer fronts, decorative centre panel and those tambours. The lion’s mask handles are later replacements but typical of what it would have had originally.
Dimensions: 82″, 30″, 43″.

Large Gilded Overmantle Mirror.

A stunning Regency style gilded overmantle cushion mirror with faux bamboo frame decorated with floral details and topped with an extravegantly carved freize of birds, a flaming tourch, arrows and olive branches. c.1890, original and untouched gilding, original glass. Some minor damage to the frame – I shall post again when it has been restored.
Dimensions: height 76″, width 47″.

Arts & Crafts Table & Bench.

Another of today’s new arrivals: An unusual arts and crafts style solid walnut refectory table with pierced ends by Reynolds of Ludlow. Together with a matching bench seat by the same maker.
Table Dimensions: width 54″, depth 27″, height 29″.

Reynolds was established in the early 1950’s as a small father and son producer of hand crafted furniture inspired by the ethos of the Arts and Crafts movement. Unfortunately there premises was destroyed by fire in the late 1970’s and the company folded soon after. Their work has become increasingly collectable.
