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.

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.

Attractive and original pair of pressed flowers, both collected during the same 1939 expedition by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson.
