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.

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.

1960s table or desk lamp, black enamel shade Out Of Stock

1960s table or desk lamp, black enamel shade

In full working order, this beautiful mid-century lamp is adjustable with an on/off switch to the base. The black enamelled shade has a few very small marks commensurate with its age but this does not at all detract from its mid-century style and appearance.

Would look fantastic as a lamp for a desk or sidelight on a table for any room.  A really attractive design.

Antique portrait of a lady, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

Antique portrait of a lady, oil on canvas

Attractive turn of the century unframed portrait of either a Dutch of German lady, oil on canvas, signed and dated J Hankemoller (??) 1902.

The face and eyes are impressively painted. There is a smallish tear on the hairline (see photos) but this doesn’t distract from the simplicity and lovely colour of the painting nor the impression and atmosphere it will give when hung.

Good size and good overall condition for its age.

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.
