Beautiful oak bank of drawers, original paint

This is a very beautiful and decorative set of table top drawers, in oak and probably estate made. It offers two small drawers to the top, both of which have been rounded off at the top edge by the craftsman, with three full-width drawers below, including the deepest at the bottom to store larger items. Each drawer is routed so it slides nicely on the internal runners.

A lovely patina overall, and a particularly attractive and practical piece.

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.

Vintage running board card tool box Out Of Stock

Vintage running board car tool box

Early 20th century (around 1915-25) car tool box that would have been affixed to the running board of a car of the period.  Made of steel and painted in black, this box has an attractive handle and clever little lock that opens with the squeeze of a toggle located underneath. It has been repainted in grey on the inside and you can still see the holes for the screws that would have fixed it to the boards.  The lock itself is stamped Eagle Lock Co, Terryville, USA. Eagle were a major manufacturer of locks in the USA from 1830 up to the end of WWII, including it is believed for tool boxes for the Model T Ford.

Nowadays this lovely shaped metal box would be an ideal storage solution or ideal to store the smaller tools used regularly in the 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.

1950s circular mirrored cabinet Out Of Stock

1950s circular mirrored cabinet

A beautiful and highly unusual circular, mid-century bathroom vanity cabinet, dating from the 1950s.

This is a unique design yet includes two shelves within to store make-up or other bathroom essentials.

The door catch works perfectly with the original ‘bun’ knob and the cabinet is in what appears to be the original paint.

There is a little rust in places, but this adds to the charm and character of a cabinet that is around 70 years old.
