Oil on canvas portrait of a Sir Archibald McKinstry by renowned society artist Cowan Dobson RBVA, ARBA

Large, framed oil on canvas portrait of Sir Archibald McKinstry by renowned society portrait artist Cowan Dobson, RBVA, ARBA. The subject is Sir Archibald McKinstry, one of the 6 ‘founding’ board members of the original British Broadcasting Company before it was sold to the Government in the mid-1920s and became the British Broadcasting Corporation. In addition to key senior public service roles in Australia in WW1 and the UK in WWII, Sir Archibald’s career included stints as MD of Babcock & Wilcox and Vice Chairman of Metal Box Co, and he was a member of the Institute of Electrical Engineers, Institute of Mechanical Engineers and member of the Royal Institution.

There is small evidence of two small repairs on the back of the canvas, but not easily visible at the front.  In excellent condition, and with an equally beautiful original gilt frame.

Attractive late 1800s portrait, oil on canvas

Sourced from a dealer in Castres, this is a medium-sized portrait of a local French doctor painted in the late 1800s by a local artist. Beautifully executed, it is a highly decorative piece. There are some losses to the canvas and evidence on the back that most of these have been disguised with black paint added to the reverse so they cannot easily be seen when the picture is hung.

While in obvious shabby chic condition, the portrait retains substantial period charm and atmosphere, looking good in any room.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – white water lily and yellow toadflax

Exquisite and striking pair of pressed flowers, both collected during the same 1939 expedition by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson. These are truly beautiful pieces of artwork, both in good vintage condition (with slight discoloration of the paper that is evidence of its pre-war heritage).  One is a large pressed flower and leaf of the Nymphaea alba family – this is also known as the European white water lily, white water rose or white nenuphar, an aquatic flowering plant of the family Nymphaeaceae. It is native to North Africa, temperate Asia, Europe and Tropical Asia (India). This was collected from an area called Vaggeryd in the South of Sweden and pressed on 22 July 1939. The other is a common (or yellow) toadflax, a wildflower species found in most of Europe, northern Asia and as far east as Siberia and western China. This was collected by the same botanist from the same area in Sweden and pressed on 22 July 1939. (A total of 5 pairs from the same botanist is available.)

The detailed description of the annotations on each page adds to the interest and appeal.

Would look wonderful properly framed or very simply hung on a peg.

Stunning 1960s polished stone and iron cocktail table

Stunningly designed polished stone and gilded metal cocktail table, probably from the 1950s/60s. This is a unique and very stylish piece.  We believe the petite proportions and simple but incredibly stylish mid-century design points to Italian origin.

The polished stone top looks (and weighs) like marble and sits perfectly in the metal gilded frame. The sides are designed to allow easy movement of the table around the room.  Would look fantastic in any home, as part of a mid-century look or something more eclectic. Can be used as a side or small coffee table.

Mid-century French oak school pegs

This is an attractive set of oak, mid-century French school pegs.  The coat rack comprises 12 pegs making it ideal for family use, for a child’s bedroom or can be used in the kitchen to hang many useful utensils.

The metal pegs are pretty and original.  Left as found, it is cut in an unusual shape at either ends (probably to fit a particular space) but it could easily be sawn level if preferred.

A nice classic piece.
