Stylish Victorian leatherette tub chair

£145.00

Attractive late Victorian tub chair in studded green leatherette with original casters.

This is a stylish chair which can be used as a decorative bedroom piece or an occasional chair.   Its’ petite size gives it plenty of flexibility as a decorative or practical piece anywhere in the home or office.

We particularly like the vintage studding, the lovely coloured green leatherette and the curves to the arms and back.

In vintage condition, it has been reinforced under the base cushion, and is comfortable.   There are a few little imperfections to the leatherette (with a slightly more visible mark – see photo), all part of being a 100 years’ old vintage item.

Attractive 1920s pine utility cupboard

£175.00

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.

Superb mid century iron apothecary cabinet

£595.00

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.

Small french portrait of a lady
