charming 19th century still life, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

Charming late 19th century still life, oil on canvas

Very lovely and attractive French still life in the naive style, oil on canvas, of a jug with grapes. Dating from the end of the 19th century,  this painting has beautifully subtle tones.

We love the worn out edges on the canvas (“dans son jus”), which is a testament to its age, and giving it immense charm.

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.

Here is a small but strikingly executed portrait of a man, in oil on canvas.

Vintage Hungarian table or desk

Early 20th century Hungarian painted table with pretty cabriole legs.

This is an attractive piece, in vintage condition, which seems largely untouched (except some repair to the left side where the top meets the legs).  It has some charming wear and tear, commensurate with age and use.  Its unusual dimensions mean it would make an impressive side or hall table, or indeed a desk.  It has a practical deep drawer to the front.

We love its unusual proportions and it would make a charming addition to any home.

unusual antique trunk Out Of Stock

Unusual antique trunk

Attractive and unusual black cardboard case,  probably from the turn of the century. Cases such as this were popular for storing military or legal clothing such as capes, robes and similar.

It is in a beautiful condition, retaining all its original studs, metal handle and it fastens well.  The inside has equally been well taken care of over the years.

We love the unusual long shape, making it an attractive storage piece to show off anywhere in the home.

1915 still life, oil on canvas Out Of Stock

1915 still life, oil on canvas

Atmospheric still life of various items on a tray and tablecloth in the early 20th century naïve style.  Unframed, this lovely picture is dated 1915 in the left corner and signed in the right corner (though we can’t quite make out the name).

There is another signature – perhaps the retailer or recipient – on the frame at the back.  We believe this is probably German and it is a nice and stylish evocation of the early 20th century period.

There are a couple of tiny holes to the canvas but these are hardly noticeable and do not detract from the picture.

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.

Leather and vellum travelling trunk

Very attractive 1920s leather and vellum travelling trunk in good and original condition. This hardy little trunk has original travel labels on one side, undamaged and original studding all round and four larger studs as feet underneath. The handle has been repaired and all corners are reinforced in leather on the top and bottom. The lid hinges are all in good order and both front catches work properly and click in easily.

The trunk appears to have been used for a variety of purposes in the past – storage of clothing or similar given there are a few punched holes in the base to allow air to circulate.

A stylish piece in good condition for its age and in very good proportions.  Would sit well on top of a wardrobe or cupboard or as storage in any room.

Antique french Napoleon III armchair Out Of Stock

Antique French Napoleon III armchair

This French armchair, made around 1890, is elegant and very decorative, currently covered with a lovely velvet upholstery in cherry.  The current upholstery has a lovely worn feel and some of the piping is far from intact, but we think this adds to its charm.

Alternatively there is scope for reupholstery in any of your chosen fabric.  The chair is strong and sturdy, and sits on original turned ebonised legs and beautiful casters.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – Lady’s Mantle and Wood-Bitter Vetch

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 Lady’s Mantle (Alchemilla vulgaris), an herbaceous perennial that is a wildflower and member of the rose family found in Europe and Greeland. This was collected in Skillingaryd, south Sweden and pressed on 24 May 1939.  The second is a root, stalk and flower of an unidentified plant which is a member of the Leguminosae (or pea family) but we think it is probably wood-bitter vetch (given reference to orobus) which grows along the Atlantic coasts of Europe. This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 24 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.
