19th century oleograph of Napoleon Out Of Stock

Unusual 19th century oileograph of Napoleon

Unusual 19th century Oileograph on canvas of younger-than-usual looking Napoleon in uniform and holding a telescope.

In its original beautiful frame, the picture has, like its subject, been in the wars with some damage to his hat and in the right corner. However, it has lovely atmospheric charm with good colours, and would surely have its place in most homes.

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.)

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.

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.
