This finely carved fruitwood chest of drawers has rare “wellington style” hinged flaps on the sides. These can be locked enabling the owner to secure the contents of all drawers bar the top one. The ribbon decoration on the front of each drawer is rare in our experience. It was formerly the property of a Parisian family, manufactured in France, probably around the late 1800’s. The price is $1845, and the dimensions are 65 cms wide , 50deep and 130 high.
A chopping board/kitchen workstation by the highly respected manufacturer Peer Sorenson. It is quite rare for us to have one of these, this being only the second example we have offered in the 25 years. Originally sold in the iconic department store Georges, it is our belief that their build quality simply made them too expensive for continued production. Measurements are 65 x 44 x 87 cms. and the chopping board is removable. The price is $390. Now sold.
These sturdy wooden boxes can be purchased individually for $39 and used to store vinyl records, books, vegetables even. Acquire more to create a modular bookcase or shelving system, tailored to your own storage and space requirements.
Heavy in weight and elaborately carved, this antique Chinese table is something of a mystery to us. Customers have suggested that it may have been designed as a mahjong table.Whatever the original purpose it should look intriguing in a modern, or period setting, $790.
From the 1960’s this large table lamp is marked
“Italy” on the base. 90 cms. in overall height, and 50 cms. diameter at the shade. The base is approximately 50cms. high. In our opinion the shade is original and the price is $149.
A gold painted lyre style piano stool from the 1920’s ($245),and a black and gold painted reproduction of an Empire style armchair with woven cane seat and back insert($195). Also visible that antique cedar hall stand referred to in our last post. Behind the piano stool on the antique pine washstand ( $220) are two similar alabaster table lamps, not a pair, for $120 each. These would date back to around the 1930’s.
From Paris, a large Deco chest in natural oak from around 1930 ($1485). In the centre an elaborately carved standard lamp incorporating an occasional table ($525). And on the right an Australian antique hall stand in cedar. This elegant piece would appear to suit a larger lobby, or more compact entrance. Probably made around 1900, it is in excellent condition ($1090).
A green suspended Arts and Crafts repro. shade for $59. A blackwood hall stand with large lidded compartment for $490. Also on the right a walnut Victorian hall stand in two parts from the late 1800’s for $1190. Both hall stands incorporate a face level mirror
