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.

Superb mid century iron apothecary cabinet

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.

Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint Out Of Stock

Late 19th century continental cupboard, original paint

Fabulous rustic continental cupboard in original paint.

The cupboard has two doors with an internal shelf behind, and a practical drawer at the top with original handles. More shelving could easily be added internally, though these types of cupboard are often adapted to make small wardrobes by adding a hanging pole beneath the existing shelf.

Aside from unusually retaining its original feet, what is most striking about this piece is the original, stunning paint, with evidence of the original blue and white overlaid about 100 years ago with a stunning deep ochre.

Offering capacious and flexible storage, this is a very stylish and original piece that would make a statement in any room.

Antique Hungarian cabinet Out Of Stock

Antique Hungarian cupboard

Beautiful and charming 19th century Hungarian country cupboard.    This unusual freestanding vintage piece is completely untouched, and the original paint and patina are stunning. There is a lovely little original key which turns, but does not lock.

The original catch on the left door is fully functional.  Both doors close (a little magnet has been added for extra help).

Two handy shelves inside are providing great storage.  Can be hung on a wall (using the original rings on the back) or would look equally beautiful standing on a surface.
