Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint

Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint

£445.00

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.

It has a great bleached look which is very easy to pair up with any scheme.    It is full of beautiful rustic character with some signs of historic woodworm which has been treated.

A lovely stylish addition to any home.

Leather and vellum travelling trunk

£95.00

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.

French priest rosary

French priest’s rosary

£38.00

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. Nowadays, these rosaries have become highly fashionable as decorative items for the home, for example hung from bed-posts or draped around pictures.

This rosary is in very good condition and has a bit of age to it.  Handmade with obvious care, the rosary comprises 60 hand carved beads (including one in the shape of a heart where the hoop joins) and a metal crucifix at the end, all joined by wires and  tiny wooden links.

A beautiful accessory for the home.

Vintage Hungarian table or desk

Early 20th century Hungarian painted table with pretty cabriole legs.

This is an attractive piece, in vintage condition, which seems largely untouched (except some repair to the left side where the top meets the legs).  It has some charming wear and tear, commensurate with age and use.  Its unusual dimensions mean it would make an impressive side or hall table, or indeed a desk.  It has a practical deep drawer to the front.

We love its unusual proportions and it would make a charming addition to any home.

Vintage decorator’s ladders

£95.00

An unusual vintage decorator’s ladder – or trestle – complete with original chain and fittings.  This is perfect for re-purposing as a display piece and could be used for example in a large bathroom to hang towels and bathrobes, or in a living area to display books or collectables.

We have also seen these in conservatories and in gardens as differentiating display pieces for flowers and plants.

In good vintage condition with some patina, these ladders are increasingly hard to find nowadays.

1915 still life, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

1915 still life, oil on canvas

Atmospheric still life of various items on a tray and tablecloth in the early 20th century naïve style.  Unframed, this lovely picture is dated 1915 in the left corner and signed in the right corner (though we can’t quite make out the name).

There is another signature – perhaps the retailer or recipient – on the frame at the back.  We believe this is probably German and it is a nice and stylish evocation of the early 20th century period.

There are a couple of tiny holes to the canvas but these are hardly noticeable and do not detract from the picture.

Turn of the century French hall rack or kitchen shelf

Turn of the century French hall rack or kitchen shelf

£165.00

In good condition and probably dating back to the turn of the century, this is an unusually large hallway coat rack with shelf or a shelf for the kitchen.

In chippy paint, the rack has 5 handy hooks and the large shelf above has two struts with ‘eyes’ so it can be affixed to a wall.

This would make a great addition to a hallway or could equally be used in the kitchen for hanging pots and pans and displaying beautiful items on the shelf, perfectly-sized to sit above a fireplace or cooker

It could also work as an attractive bathroom piece, or a children’s bedroom shelf for books and toys.

vintage Hungarian flax comb Out Of Stock

Vintage Hungarian flax comb

This is a very beautiful accessory which was originally used to tease out the tangles in the wool or separate the fibers from the flax plant in order to spin them into linen thread.

Wooden flax combs tend to be rarer than metal ones – wooden combs were found largely in remote rural villages as the farmers had limited access to metal.

A very sculptural and organic object with a beautiful natural patina that would look stunning displayed on a shelf or hung on a wall.

£90.00

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.
