Superior quality Art Deco style burr walnut bedroom suite c.1930. Featuring fitted triple wardrobe, dressing table, bedside cabinet and a very useful little press/chest of drawers side cabinet with matching veneers by the Manchester manufacturers Rhind & Sons. The nicely carved feet and solid mahogany linings and back boards make it stand out from more run of the mill suits. Original mirrors and brass handles.
Restored, reglued and repolished, this handsome set of solid rosewood William IV dining chairs c.1830 have had the seat pads and covers removed pending reupholstery. With such good legs and the quality of the carving and timber I think a pale neutral fabric will look great. I shall post again when they are finished but in the meantime they are priced £2295 as is (we have all 8 original seat pads) and you can choose your own fabric.
Though their name is not so well known generally, Edwards and Roberts of Wardour Street London were one of the very best furniture makers of the late 19th century. They worked in various contemporary and revivalist styles but inlay and marquetry were something of a speciality.
New today is this delightful little inlaid satinwood two door side cabinet by Edwards & Roberts. Superiour quality, clearly stamped to the top edge of the drawer front. Original, unrestored condition.
Dimensions: width 33.5″, depth 14″, height 51″.
Of unique design and truly phenomenal quality, this imposing British Art Nouveau sideboard, c.1895 is highlight of today’s new arrivals. A real show stopper with carved floral detail in heavy relief and massive, decorative brass work. Featuring original bottle drawer and slides. In need of a little restoration, I shall post again when it is finished.
Apologies for the lack of posts this week. I’ve been away for a couple of days and now we’re loading to head of to the world famous Newark antique fair. Hopefully we’ll have some more goodies to show you on Friday. In the meantime here is a very attractive American Shaker style stickback settle. No great age but nice lines I think.
Dimensions: width 55″, depth 19″, height 38″.
Also arriving yesterday was this collection of Persian, Pakistani and Turkish woven rugs and runners. Wonderful colours and designs, we couldn’t resist teaming them with our Moorish brass bound chest, a little Arabian table and a pair of carved Indian elephants.
Various sizes and prices – please contact us if you would like details.
Fresh out of the workshop this morning having been cleaned and waxed is this delightfully rustic 19th.c. pine dairy table c.1850. With three drawers, featuring the original knobs, raised on turned legs. The base retains the original ‘scrumbled’ finish, painted to represent oak wood grain.
Dimensions: width 54″, depth 25″, height 30″
