Longwy floral dish
Until recent times this little table would have been heading straight for the stripping tank once the formica covering to its top had been removed: but times have changed and very likely one or more amongst you would prefer to have it in its mid-century finish - a mix of worn light blue paint to its base and rubbed patterned formica covering to the top, which is bordered with aluminium beading and blue infill. At one time indigenous throughout the length and breadth of the British Isles - from Liverpool semis to Isle of Wight bungalows - tables such as this, made a hundred years ago or thereabouts, that retain their authentic 1950's updates and subsequent patina are not too easy to find. At just over 42 inches long and 26 inches wide by 30 inches high it will feed four with a squeeze and it has a drawer too so has many other uses. Solid as they come and ready for immediate use once it has had a light clean to rid it of any undesirable grime.

We just couldn't resist these fantastic huge, very definitely shabby, and somewhat distressed tassels in golden silk. From 'top to toe', including rope, each measures 43 inches with the tassel itself being 21 inches. Traditionally made with wooden bodies covered in fine silk and braid they are showing their age with loss and fraying to mainly the fine silk but still have an enormous presence. The price is for all eight shown in photos plus two more which are complete but have separated bodies that could be carefully reconstituted if desired or utilised as 'spares'. Their applications are legion and their ability to enhance the right kind of setting enormous.........

Croydon Park Football Club solid silver presentation cigarette case - hallmarked Birmingham 1912 on both case and lid. Engraved inscription reads 'Presented to Mr P.G.Ward in appreciation of his services as Hon. Sec. of Croydon Park F.C. 1906-1912.' Now over 100 years old it is in pretty good condition considering that it will have been carried in a pocket for a good part of its life but does have the odd little dent and ding - however it has not been polished to within an inch of its life so machining and engraving is still good and metal not worn thin. As you will see elastic retainers have been replaced with inappropriate knicker, pant or suspender elastic but otherwise an interesting and scarce piece of soccer memorabilia. Price includes insured postage to UK address.

Mid 18th century mahogany bureau that I purchased from the Countess of Arran, present incumbent of Castle Hill, some 25 years ago when the family were having a 'spring clean' of the stable block and attics. Possibly estate made (due to some features including drawer linings of beech) this bureau likely lived all its life in this grand North Devon mansion and if this is indeed the case would be a survivor of the fire of 1934 which destroyed a good part of the building. Probably demoted to lesser rooms or even servants quarters at some time it certainly shows its age being 'battered but unbowed' with a good proportions and a particularly attractive interior fit up. Kept for myself with the intention of carrying out sympathetic restoration but now redundant due to a secretare bookcase taking its intended place it awaits an appreciative owner - perhaps from North Devon with this piece's historic links to that part of the world. All brasses are the originals (one is missing and will have to be replicated), the hideous later bottom plinth cum brackets must be cast aside and replaced with ogee or appropriate bracket feet and various damage made good. Within one of the small compartments was Countess Fortescue's ivory Red Cross fob engraved with her name from circa WW1 and this will go to the purchaser (providing the full price is paid for the bureau) along with written provenance if so desired. It is some 40 inches wide and high with a depth of just over 21 inches.

A single mahogany Georgian chair of exceptional quality with drop in seat. Separated from its twins many years ago it has more recently served as part of a harlequin set and at the head of the table as befits its undoubted status. A truly lovely piece from an age of craftsmanship that is but a distant memory and one which will give its new owner much pleasure as a well as a subject for conversation as to how long its like would take to make (providing could fine the person do it) and what the cost would be - let alone sourcing the correct timber.
