Good quality Victorian mahogany extending or 'wind out' dining table with its original extra leaf. Having a width of 42 inches it measures 51 inches long retracted and 72 inches extended with extra leaf fitted. Straight out of the farmhouse from which we bought it this spacious table is ready for immediate use as is providing you do not want a showpiece and is priced accordingly. Importantly its wind out carriage operates smoothly by means of its original handle and is entirely worm free (the beech sections of these are not always so). The (original and correct) extra leaf is of a somewhat darker colour than the rest of the table due to it normally being stored away from the light. The polish on the mahogany of the remainder, as you can see from the photos, is somewhat faded but if the whole was re French polished it would respond well if a richer reddish hue was desired. Castors are later replacements and although serving their purpose well a set of old or reproduction brass or brass and china ones would be more appropriate. Our price of £395 more than allows for it to be fitted with fresh castors and its cosmetic deffects to be remedied. On the other hand if it is acceptable to you 'as is' it represents an extraordinarily good table for a very reasonable price.

42 inches by 72 inches.

Wide Victorian stripped pine chest 30 ins high
Small collectors chest in (painted) pine with six drawers. This came straight from a house that was built in the early 1930s and has been in the same family ever since. Each drawer has still has its contents assembled by the youngsters during the mid '30s and early years of the war. Contents almost wholly comprise of shells (these likely brought back from foreign parts by their father who was a seafarer) and coins. Coins are various nationalities but largely British (e.g. there is a 'run' of over 20 rather worn Victorian pennies) and date from the 1870s up until the early 1940s. Each drawer has a glass cover in rebate (one cracked). Please note that due to its charm we have left this entirely as found and the pine chest could of course be stripped and red handles replaced with dinkie brass knobs - also contents are undisturbed.

Small collectors chest with coins and shells
Victorian pine kitchen table with two drawers with original finish to base and bare wood top. although in its original finish this table has had a somewhat chequered history in that at some time, many moons ago, its top was extended by the insertion of an extra plank thus giving it an above average overhang. The top can be slid to gave abnormal overhang if required (as was in its tailors shop guise) or fixed centrally - this by screw blocks on the underside (now detached in order to render the top removable). If required this extra plank could be removed in order to return the table to its original format by the way. Top in present form measures 48 by 35 inches or if returned to original would be 48 by 26 1/2 inches. A characterful and useful piece of pine Victorian kitchenalia with a lot of patina for just £195
