These are a lovely pair of Edwardian silver casters - 1902. The baluster shape is probably the most popular form and single examples are plentiful; however finding a matching pair is more difficult and these are a fine twosome. These pepper pots are hallmarked to the fronts, and also appropriately marked with lion passant and date letter to the pierced covers. They are in good condition, with a couple of minor knocks to one shaker
A superb farmhouse kitchen table. The main table is constructed in cherry although the bread slide is chestnut. This would suggest that it is French in origin. There has been a small amount of historic woodworm, which we have treated although there was no sign of recent activity. The colour is excellent and the polish is good.A very attractive table.
A good quality set of four gothic revival dining chairs dating to around 1880, that could also be used as side, or hall chairs. The frames are constructed of red walnut and have a green man carving on the back rail. They have been newly upholstered from the frame up and covered in a quality tartan material.
A lovely sentimental piece of Edwardian jewellery, dating to around 1910. This 'Mother' brooch follows the genre of name brooches which was popular at this time. This one is gold plated on a brass body, as opposed to those which are gold plated on a silver body. It bears the makers initials AJC to the reverse. Simple pin clasp fastening.
A fine 18th century Imari trumpet vase is richly hand painted with the traditional imari ho ho bird, and floral and foliate designs. These motifs are handpainted in the traditional Japanese imari cobalt blue, iron red and gold, and also a more unusual green. This vase is unmarked on the base. The vase is in good condition. Minor points to mention are that the gilding to the rim is worn, and there is a blob of blue under the glaze on the inside of the flare of the trumpet, occuring during the production of the vase. See photo.
An impressive long walnut window seat dating from circa 1880. The six carved cabriole legs joined with shaped carved rails. The upholstered seat retains its original tapestry cover which has been repaired over the years and although it remains delicate, it is usable with care. The tapestry depicts a hunting scene at the centre surrounded by floral border.
