Beautiful small english landscape, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

Beautiful english landscape, oil on canvas

This is an exquisite little English seaside scene in the mist, oil on canvas.  It is an impressionist painting from the late 19th century which caught our eye for its petite size, soft colours and gorgeous atmosphere.

Would look stunning either hung or just resting on any surface.

Vintage set of black table top drawers

Very attractive and charming little bank of table top drawers with metal handles.    Probably from the 1940s, it is made of plywood surround covered with a beautifully aged black paper, retaining old labels.

The drawers are plywood with cardboard base.

Each of the 4 drawers is of equal size and provides great storage for small items.

This piece is ideal for use in an office, a bedroom as jewellery storage, or can serve as a variety of other purposes.  There are a few creases to the covering paper, and some imperfection due to age, which gives it a very charming vintage look.

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.

Vintage French painted cabinet

This is a very pretty vintage painted cabinet with lovely proportions. It features a practical shelf inside.

There are signs of it being painted a couple of times, but this makes all its charm and individuality.

We love the French light grey finish.

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

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.

Matching pair of 1950/60s cocktail or lounge chairs

A rare matching pair of faux leather cocktail or lounge chairs, with unusual rounded backs in light red faux leather.  These are probably French given their ‘salon’ look, and are sturdily constructed with each chair benefitting from 23 solid springs beneath strong webbing and encased in a metal frame.

The colour is particularly attractive – a red that is more towards the pink end of the range – set off by original studs around the upholstery. Strong, solid and a great mid-century look for a sitting room, bedroom or large hallway.  In great vintage condition.

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

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.

1930s vintage Kaiser Idell clamp lamp

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.

Small french portrait of a lady, oil on canvas

Beautiful small French oil portrait of a country lady.

Although found amongst many others in a Paris artist studio, this little oil painting is unsigned, but immensely charming. The tight series of old original nails around its edge add to its character and charm.

Its petite size and earthy tones make it suitable to many spots of the home as a single item hung on the wall or beautifully leaning on a fireplace or side table, but equally striking within a collection of paintings.

Pretty French still life, oil on board

Attractive 1920s pine utility cupboard

Beautiful, and certainly characterful, 1920s tool or domestic item storage cupboard.  Possibly estate-made, this pine, mid-height cupboard can be used as a great utility or housekeepers cupboard in the modern home.  It can be fixed to a wall like a kitchen cupboard, be floor-standing or rest on a table or kitchen surface. It is ideal as a receptacle for domestic cleaning items or, with its shelves amended, as a bookcase.

We fell in love with its character and have kept it completely untouched on the inside.   It features hooks, shelves and a little wooden tray for clever storage of loose items. The symmetrical steel locks are original and stunning and open and shut beautifully, affixed to steel insets which are most unusual.

A cupboard with a different look, unusual shape and immense charm.

19th century french naive portrait, oil on canvas

Signed 19th century portrait of a French gentleman, oil on canvas. There is a beautiful naïve quality to this piece.   We love the soft hues used to create a peaceful portrait.

The painting is in as found condition, with a few paint losses, but this does not detract from its charm.

Mid century wall oak cabinet

Attractive vintage 1940s wall cabinet with original bevelled mirror and original knob.

The cabinet has a lovely bleached oak patina and 3 eyelets for easy hanging.

It has a definite rustic feel on the inside, featuring a small internal cupboard below shelves. We left it looking characterful on the inside, but it could be painted if required. It would suit a natural looking bathroom or restroom.

We love the natural bleach finish and smooth curves to the edges.
