Cullompton Antiques 

 

 

19th century West Country serving table in elm with its original scrubbed pine top. 66 inches long by just over 31 wide and stands 31 inches tall. Three drawers with original turned handles. Spent the majority of its life in a mid Devon farmhouse and was on occasions used for eating at but with a clearance of just 21 inches beneath the side and end rails it cannot really be classed as an everyday dining table. We have left its original and now worn finish strictly alone, but if the new owner's preference was for a lighter look then the elm base could of course be carefully stripped. The base has been visited by Mr and Mrs Woodworm in the past so, although this is well and truly historic and not active (it has been treated just to make doubly sure), if evidence of their life cycle is a total anathema to you this piece may not be for you..........unless you are happy to spend hours carefully filling each hole that is!

French Cherrywood Table
mid Victorian slipper chair with oak frame. although not the original its buttoned upholstery has a period lived in look - castors too have been replaced at some time. Chairs of this type, although originally designed to be used in the bed or dressing room by a lady to put on her stockings and footwear whilst dressing, are wonderfully comfortable and thus make an extremely useful addition to the household's compliment of seats. In fact one of our partners picked up his guitar and settled himself in this very chair the moment it came into the Tannery remarking that it was ideal for the musician!

Victorian Slipper Chair
Secretaire Bookcase from the latter part of George III's reign in attractively faded mahogany and standing upon its original bracket feet. Adjustable shelves to upper portion. Drawers lined with publishers' flyers: including one for G. W. Anderson's now rather valuable book relating the voyages of Captain Cook, which was published by Alex Hogg in 1786 - thus these linings were very likely pasted in when this piece was in its first bloom of youth, over 200 years ago. Unlike some similar secretaires, which tend towards the ungainly, this one is of trim dimensions with a width of just 45 inches, a depth (to the base) of 21 inches and a height of 84 inches.

Estate cupboard in pitch pine - 80 inches high, by 48 inches wide by 18 inches deep. Unrestored or repaired and just as we purchased it from old farm. Although sound and, as pitch pine almost always is, tot or worm free it does need so TLC unless you fancy it as it is - shabby. Has been cut in half vertically at some time (to get up or down a staircase most likely) but is perfectly usable as is: if you don't mind the evidence on the top rail above doors. The cornice has been roughly nailed back in place after this and is somewhat damaged. Would all respond to treatment however and - dare we say it - could be a good candidate for painting if you're not too keen on the pitch pine look. Does have its original lock and key by the way. Tons of margin in this for trade or private at just £195.

Pine estate cupboard
The Dominion Toy Manufacturing Co was established in Toronto in 1911 and made Dolls and Teddy Bears until 1932. Characterised by their life like heads with opening and closing eyes and fully ball jointed , if verging on primitive, composition bodies this example is typical of the firm's products. Brought back to England by a family who spent time in Canada during the early part of the last century this has the look of DTMC's Eaton Beauty, which was made for one year only in 1915. ......ooooh - by the way she stands about 20 inches tall in her stockinged feet.

Travelling vanity case with silver topped glass containers, hair brushes and other accessories, including notebook and mirror in leather cases. Very good leather case complete with dark green moire silk lining and somewhat travel worn weather cover - both monogrammed. NB silver tops are not all matching and contents are not entirely complete, but very nearly - nevertheless this is a wonderfully evocative gentlemans' companion from days gone by and as such would enhance a suitable room, shop, stage or film set.

Traveling Vanity Case -Silver topped accoutrements
A loveable pair of dolls for the those who like such things - we are not very keen but as these came via a clearance here they are ready and waiting for new and appreciative homes. There's a bisque Kewpie for £45 that needs its arms re-attaching and a 1950s prestige that is pretty good for its years at £20....Condition? - Kewpie needs its arms attaching - The Prestige is the youngest of this little duo and is in fair shape but the its eyes are a little reluctant to blink demurely - more of a lazy droop of the eyelids.
