We couldn't resist this 1960s Melody Maker brass trumpet which now awaits its new musician owner. Comes complete in its fitted plush lined case, with No 2 mouthpiece and its original purchase receipt dated October 6th 1966 from Harry Landis of Sydney, Australia. Only damage is shown on photo and is otherwise really sound with no loose soldered joints etc - original lacquer, although worn in usual places and spotted here and there, is quite presentable. A lovely thing to show or play for just £125.

Late 19th century Arts and Crafts period andirons of wrought iron and cast brass. Andirons such as these were current in the 17th century and were one of the many earlier designs that were influential upon the Arts and Crafts movement. Even by the late 19th century surviving examples were scarce and hard to obtain so artisans who worked within the Arts and Crafts movement made modern day equivalents. These in turn are now almost impossible to find and rarely come on the market so we doubt you will come across another pair (for sale) - especially at this price.

Well proportioned Georgian mahogany tilt top table with 'bird cage' under and particularly well formed tripod base and feet - its generous 3ft 6in top inviting occasional intimate fireside dining. The top, which has every appearance of being made from a single piece of timber, is split free and sits very firmly upon the base - the rotating function of the 'bird cage' having been disabled by means of discreet iron strapwork many years ago. That said the essential tilting function, along with its original brass catch, operates perfectly.
