Vintage Hungarian country side table or desk

£175.00

Early 20th century Hungarian pine table, with original green paint and white over paint, and pretty cabriole legs.

This is a country 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 a country farmhouse and town house.

19th century “rusty” safe – highly original and decorative

£125.00

A very unusual lockable safe of some age, with original working lock and key.  Manufactured by Charles Henry Griffiths & Sons of 43 Cannon Street, London, who were specialist fire and thief-proof safe manufacturers at the end of the 19th century.

Inside, the safe retains its original paint and lock, with three shelves, two brass chains to support the door and a pretty little drawer with knob in the corner.  It also has two carrying handles. We considered applying oil to remove the rust but, actually, it is the earthy original rust colour and beautiful patina which give this piece its unique character.

The inside is equally beautiful, and ideal for stationery or other valuables on a desk, or even for jewellery or as a make-up cupboard. It would also look good anywhere in the home as an unusual stand-alone piece. A rare and very useable find.

Early 20th century Thonet style bentwood rocking chair

£195.00

Beautiful Thonet style rocker stained beech, with original tan coloured leather seat and back with lovely original metal studs.

In good used condition, it rocks very well and the curved design of this classic piece is enjoying increasing popularity. Some age and wear to the frame but overall sound, and a piece that shows it is not a modern reproduction.

A stylish addition to a contemporary bedroom or sitting room.

19th century portrait of a European gentleman, oil on canvas

£245.00

Very well executed 19th century portrait of a European Gentleman, oil on canvas. There is evidence of a signature and date (1882??) in the top left corner but it is very difficult to make out. There is a beautiful artistic quality to this piece, and the subject is clearly middle-European judging by his attire. The painting has been professionally repaired by the previous owner (see back image), and there is one small area to the bottom where the paint has been lost (see image), but this does not to our minds detract from its overall quality and charm.

This is a beautiful piece of art that would look stunning in the modern home.

Superb mid century iron apothecary cabinet

£425.00

Probably from the 1950s, this is a superb just off white industrial iron medical apothecary cabinet in great vintage condition.

 The bottom cupboard has the original timber shelf, whilst the top glass section of the cabinet has one glass shelf. More glass shelves can be easily added if required. The top and bottom double doors are secured with turning hooks.

There is a little bit of rusting and a few knocks on the paint finish here and there, but this adds to the vintage mid century authenticity of the piece, and are by no means extensive. The piece is generally in good vintage condition.

The cabinet would make a stunning addition to a large bathroom or kitchen, or a fantastically cool bookcase.

We love the off white original paint finish, easily fitting in all home colour schemes.

1930s vintage Kaiser Idell clamp lamp

£165.00

Beautiful black vintage industrial desk lamp designed by German Bauhaus designer Christian Dell in the 1930s for manufacturer Kaiser Idell.

It features attribution marks with two manufacturers labels, one on the top of the shade and one on the clamp.  It is a very stylish, but equally practical piece with a fully adjustable gooseneck.

Although in overall good vintage condition, the item shows signs of age on the clamp, but the shade is well preserved. The lamp can be clipped on nearly all kind of furniture.

The lamp has been pat tested (with certificate inside the shade) and is in full working order. The cord is black and has a British plug.

Would be ideal for a study desk, but equally striking in the sitting room or as a bedside reading lamp.
