Antique French wooden chopping board, circa 1890 Out Of Stock

Antique French wooden chopping board, circa 1890

Beautiful primitive late 19th century French wooden cutting board.  It is very thick and heavy with a characterful patina, showing years of use.  It has a hole from which it can be hung if desired.

These rustic boards were mostly home made and carved from a single piece of wood.  Today, as well as looking fabulous in the kitchen, they are an excellent everyday item.

A true farmhouse kitchen staple with immense character.

French antique desk or kitchen table

French antique desk or kitchen table

£295.00

Characterful old pine desk with drawer to the front, in attractive white paint.

This vintage table has been loved for many decades with signs of age and use and repainted at some later point.  It is in excellent condition, although there is some evidence of historic woodworm underneath, but this has been treated.

The slightly tapered legs give it an elegant shape and the white paint makes it easy to fit any interior.  A very good sized table that would work beautifully as a very comfortable desk or even a kitchen prep table.

Botanical pressed flowers Out Of Stock

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – yellow star of Bethlehem and red clover

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 the yellow star of Bethlehem, a Eurasian flowering plant species in the family Liliaceae.  It is widespread in central Europe with scattered populations in Great Britain, Spain and Norway to Siberia and Japan. This was collected in Vaggeryd, a small community in the south of Sweden and pressed on 22 April 1939.  The second is a root, stalk and flower of red clover (Trifolium Pratense), a herbaceous species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, native to Europe, Western Asia, and northwest Africa, This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 15 June 1939.

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.
