Early 20th Century Canterbury Magazine Rack made by Howard and Sons of London

1930 Howard & Sons Canterbury 21½h 19½w 14d _11.JPG

Very fine quality 1920s mahogany Canterbury made by Howard and Sons. This magazine rack is very well made with mahogany lined drawers and precision dovetails. The turned detail to the legs, spindles and handles is very fine and the casters are very pretty gilt brass. This Canterbury is shown as it came to us unrestorerd in these photographs. It will look wonderful when our restorers have finished polishing it with beeswax.
Please ask about restoration and delivery options.

Early 19th Century Chinese Export Sewing Table / Work Table

19th Century Lacquer Work Table 28h 25w 16¼d _8.JPG

A very fine quality Chinese export lacquer work table. The lid lifts to reveal compartments for needlework tools and storage. The detail of the lacquer work is quite incredible and the whole table is profusely covered, even the inside of the legs and the stretcher. The top is worn, but the exceptional quality and condition of the decoration to the rest of the piece more than makes up for this. This work table comes apart by the use of thumb screws underneath, so it was designed for travelling and perhaps even a campaign piece. The proportions, end support and the shape of the top would indicate an early date of manufacture as well as giving this table very pleasing lines with thin sections and a narrow frieze. There are some repairs to the legs which are a bit wobbly but can be repaired. Please let us know if you need more photos and contact us to discuss your restoration requirements of course.

Mid Century Dining Table

1964 Dining Table Michael Knott Eric Bumstead 36w 87½L 29h _27.JPG

Extremely fine quality dining table designed by Michael Knott and made by Eric Bumstead in 1964. Michael Knott is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London "the World's most influential post graduate institute of art and design" according to their own website. This is one of the best made tables from this period that we have seen. It is made from solid cuts of timber rather than veneer, the top is cleated and the sections of wood run the length of the table. The lack of frieze means lots of knee room and the pedestal support means that table legs do not get in the way of human ones. This is a very beautiful table whose elegant design conceals its impressive weight. These photos do not do it justice!

Regency Mahogany Antique Dining Table

1820 Regency Mahogany Gillow Dining Table the carrier 27½d 14w 58h the table 49L 167½L 52w 28½h leaves are 24½ 24½ 24¼ 23¾ and 20¾ _32.JPG

Early 19th century Regency mahogany extending dining table attributed to Gillow of Lancaster and London. This table has one of the best runs of matched mahogany that we have seen for a long time. The timber has a really beautiful grain pattern and it is either all from the same tree or has been carefully chosen so that it all matches. Being an importer of timber themselves Gillow had vast range of timber at their disposal and the grain pattern chosen for this solid mahogany top is typical of their best pieces, as too is the fiddle back veneer chosen for the frieze at the ends and either side. The mechanism is a very clever double sash movement which unusually allows the ends of the top to over sail the legs. This means that there are no legs at the corners when the table is fully extended. The mechanism itself is very well constructed and it still slides very smoothly. This table will seat twelve comfortably and can squeeze fourteen if they are good friends.

Set of Eight Oak Regency Dining Chairs

8 plus one free spare Regency Oak wonderful  dining chairs 33½h 20w 20d 18hs _3.JPG

Set of eight Regency dining chairs standing on turned and reeded legs with exceptionally fine carving and a very generous shape overall, especially to the rear uprights and back leg. The rear uprights also have a very well drawn moulded detail which runs from the seat up and into the back rest with an out turned scroll on each side. It is unusual to find a set of chairs from this period in oak and even rarer still for them to be of such typically classical Regency form.
The oak is a lovely colour and we think that this set of chairs would sit just as well in a contemporary dining room as a traditional one.

Rare Antique Burr Elm Sofa Table

Rare Antique Burr Elm Sofa Table2.jpg

Very unusual and very fine quality Regency sofa table in burr elm. This table is exceptionally well made, with double lopers to support the ends, end support leg structure, cross banding, stringing, very precise dovetails and very crisp carving all round. The cluster column support is a lovely design and the ebony and ebonising contrast the elm very well. This is a very useful sort of table, being narrow front to back and quite long it looks good when standing behind sofa or against a wall and as it is free standing it can also be used in the middle of a room as a desk.

Remarkably, the sofa was that was made for M.R.Boulton of Tew Park in 1817 has the original receipt and cost an impressive £32.10s which was a lot of money back then. See the last three photos below.

Antique dining table standing on three pedestals each with four splay base. This sort of base is very sought after, the shape is a Gillow design with the early high knee placement and very vertical waterfall shape to the legs.

The timber of this table is very nicely figured dense grained mahogany, this is one of the finest cuts of mahogany that we see and it will look wonderful when we have repolished it. The polishing is included in the price and colour matching is part of the restoration process so the top will be an even colour and it is possible to specify a dark, medium or light colour. The table can be made smaller by taking out the removable leaves and can be made longer by the addition of two more leaves made using matching antique timber. Please ask for an estimate to make it longer.
