Beautiful workshop cabinet

Beautiful, and characterful, small 1940s workshop cupboard.  Possibly British, this cabinet can be used as a great little storage cupboard.  It can be fixed to a wall or rest on a table or desk. Filled with various shelves and drawers, it is ideal as a receptacle for small personal items or stationery.

We fell in love with its character and have kept it completely untouched.  It still retains its original handles, lock and hinges, and although this does not seem to be the original paint, it is very old and has not been repainted for many decades.

It has many imperfections, such as scratches, knocks and uneven paint which are commensurate with age.  There are signs of historic woodworm which has been treated.

A cupboard with lovely proportions and immense charm that would look stunning in the vintage home.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – bearberry and white 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 Arctostaphylos uva-ursi – or more commonly the bearberry, an evergreen, trailing shrub with alternate, delicately-veined leaves and reddish papery bark and small bell-shaped, pinkish-white flowers. The bearberry is found  in the subarctic Northern Hemisphere and, in the US and Canada, it is known as Kinnikinnick. This was collected by Fransson in Vaggeryd, a small community in the south of Sweden and pressed on 22 9 May 1939.  The second is a root, stalk and flower of the white clover (Trifolium Repens), a herbaceous species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, native to Europe and central Asia. This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 5 July 1939.  (A total of 6 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.

Superb mid century iron apothecary cabinet

£425.00

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.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – bog-myrtle sweet willow and coltsfoot

Attractive and original 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 root, flower and leaf of coltsfoot, a plant in the groundsel tribe in the daisy family Asteraceae, native to Europe and parts of western and central Asia. This was collected from an area called Vaggeryd in the South of Sweden and pressed on 16 April 1939. The other is myrica gale, a species of flowering plant in the genus Myrica, native to northern and western Europe and parts of northern North America and more commonly called bog-myrtle sweet willow, Dutch myrtle, and sweetgale. This was collected by the same botanist from the same area in Sweden and pressed on 9 May 1939. (A total of 5 pairs from the same botanist is available.)

Characterful 1930s-40s wall mounted first aid cupboard Out Of Stock

Characterful 1930s-40s wall-mounted First Aid cupboard

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.
