French priest’s rosary

This is a lovely French wooden rosary with metal crucifix. These rosaries were designed to be worn by priest over their vestments during religious services.

A beautiful accessory for the home.

French Napoleon III armchair Out Of Stock

French Napoleon III armchair

This is a very pretty French Napoleon III armchair from the 19th century.

The chair is strong and springs are sturdy, and the blush pink velvet upholstery is in very good condition overall (except for a tiny tear by the left arm which is hardly visible – as shown on photo).

We love the pretty brass studding just above the front and back feet.

A lovely classic piece to be used as it is or to be re-upholstered in your choice of fabric. Would look great in any room of the home.

charming 19th century still life, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

Charming late 19th century still life, oil on canvas

Very lovely and attractive French still life in the naive style, oil on canvas, of a jug with grapes. Dating from the end of the 19th century,  this painting has beautifully subtle tones.

We love the worn out edges on the canvas (“dans son jus”), which is a testament to its age, and giving it immense charm.

Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint Out Of Stock

Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint

Fabulous rustic continental cupboard in original paint.

The cupboard has two doors with an internal shelf behind, and a practical drawer at the top with original handles. More shelving could easily be added internally, though these types of cupboard are often adapted to make small wardrobes by adding a hanging pole beneath the existing shelf.

Aside from unusually retaining its original feet, what is most striking about this piece is the original, stunning paint, with evidence of the original blue and white overlaid about 100 years ago with a stunning deep ochre.

Offering capacious and flexible storage, this is a very stylish and original piece that would make a statement in any room.

small 1930s portrait of a gentleman Out Of Stock

Small 1930s portrait of a gentleman, oil on canvas

Here is a small but strikingly executed portrait of a man, in oil on canvas.

Wearing a hat, the subject’s features are marvellously captured and the eyes are particularly well done.  Probably British, this characterful and atmospheric portrait is unframed and in excellent condition for its age.

A real little gem of a painting.

Leather and vellum travelling trunk

Very attractive 1920s leather and vellum travelling trunk in good and original condition. This hardy little trunk has original travel labels on one side, undamaged and original studding all round and four larger studs as feet underneath. The handle has been repaired and all corners are reinforced in leather on the top and bottom. The lid hinges are all in good order and both front catches work properly and click in easily.

The trunk appears to have been used for a variety of purposes in the past – storage of clothing or similar given there are a few punched holes in the base to allow air to circulate.

A stylish piece in good condition for its age and in very good proportions.  Would sit well on top of a wardrobe or cupboard or as storage in any room.

Antique french Napoleon III armchair Out Of Stock

Antique French Napoleon III armchair

This French armchair, made around 1890, is elegant and very decorative, currently covered with a lovely velvet upholstery in cherry.  The current upholstery has a lovely worn feel and some of the piping is far from intact, but we think this adds to its charm.

Alternatively there is scope for reupholstery in any of your chosen fabric.  The chair is strong and sturdy, and sits on original turned ebonised legs and beautiful casters.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – Lady’s Mantle and Wood-Bitter Vetch

Attractive pair of pressed flowers, both collected during the same 1939 expedition by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson. These are lovely 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 pressed root, stalk and flower of Lady’s Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris), an herbaceous perennial that is a wildflower and member of the rose family found in Europe and Greeland. This was collected in Skillingaryd, south Sweden and pressed on 24 May 1939.  The second is a root, stalk and flower of an unidentified plant which is a member of the Leguminosae (or pea family) but we think it is probably wood-bitter vetch (given reference to orobus) which grows along the Atlantic coasts of Europe. This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 24 May 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.
