Antique Scottish Chest of Drawers Part For Restoration Currently Useable

The main storage unit from a “Scottish” chest of dawers made from flame mahogany veneers in the mid to late 1800s. The last photograph (from the internet is an example of how this chest would appear with the missing stand and the barley sugar columns missing from the front lower half.

What is good about this piece would be a fair question?

1. Useable as intended i.e. a chest of drawers immediately.

2. Very inexpensive.

3. The legs and columns are so much easier to recreate than the chest itself. In fact the columns may be available as reproductions from Graeme Brown’s excellent estblishment in Armadale, Victoria. Even if you don’t tackle this project, why not treat yourself to a visit to this Aladdin’s cave of restoration supplies.

Workshop Architect’s Drawing Lamp Anglepoise Planet Desk

These come up very rarely.

An articulated or anglepoise desk or worktable light from the 1940’s. In Australia this work light was reinvented with great success by Planet. A style beloved of design devotees as well of those of us that just like to work under a bright light. We are particularly drawn to the on/off switch which looks like if it has been taken straight off the wall and sculpted in an integrated fashion to the base.

Item Measurements

15 cm diameter at the base and 90 cm fully extended upwards.
