Characterful 1930s-40s wall mounted first aid cupboard

Characterful 1930s-40s wall-mounted First Aid cupboard

£85.00

Very unusual 1930s/40s factory or laboratory First Aid cupboard, complete with detailed health and safety warnings affixed to the door behind glass, with ‘First Aid” in bold lettering to the front.  There is a shelf within to stand products etc, and two holes at the back to mount the cupboard to a wall.

We’ve never seen a First Aid cupboard like this, and believe it is British, used in a small lab or factory around the middle of the last century. It has clearly been used and shows signs of wear to the door, which in many ways adds to its unique charm.  Very , unique, practical and a stand-out, characterful piece.

Late 19th century French wall shelf

Late 19th century French wall shelf

£175.00

In good condition and probably dating back to the late 19th century, this is a beautiful and elegant antique open hooks an shelf.

The rack has 8 handy original hooks.  There are two ‘eyes’ on the top of the shelf for it to be affixed to the wall.  One side of the shelf is slighly curved, whilst the other is square, but this does not detract from its charm or practicality.

We love the beautiful original chippy paint and its light ochre colour.

A great addition to a hallway, kitchen or the bathroom.

Vintage running board card tool box

Vintage running board car tool box

£45.00

Early 20th century (around 1915-25) car tool box that would have been affixed to the running board of a car of the period.  Made of steel and painted in black, this box has an attractive handle and clever little lock that opens with the squeeze of a toggle located underneath. It has been repainted in grey on the inside and you can still see the holes for the screws that would have fixed it to the boards.  The lock itself is stamped Eagle Lock Co, Terryville, USA. Eagle were a major manufacturer of locks in the USA from 1830 up to the end of WWII, including it is believed for tool boxes for the Model T Ford.

Nowadays this lovely shaped metal box would be an ideal storage solution or ideal to store the smaller tools used regularly in the home.

Antique french Napoleon III armchair

Antique French Napoleon III armchair

£295.00

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.

Unusual 19th century Oileograph on canvas of younger-than-usual looking Napoleon in uniform and holding a telescope.

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

£58.00

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.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – bog-myrtle sweet willow and coltsfoot

£58.00

Attractive and original 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 root, flower and leaf of coltsfoot, a plant in the groundsel tribe in the daisy family Asteraceae, native to Europe and parts of western and central Asia. This was collected from an area called Vaggeryd in the South of Sweden and pressed on 16 April 1939. The other is myrica gale, a species of flowering plant in the genus Myrica, native to northern and western Europe and parts of northern North America and more commonly called bog-myrtle sweet willow, Dutch myrtle, and sweetgale. This was collected by the same botanist from the same area in Sweden and pressed on 9 May 1939. (A total of 5 pairs from the same botanist is available.)
