Cullompton Antiques 

 

 

A delightful and really quite comfortable Windsor scroll back and with maker's 'signature' too. We've gone through Cotton's book on regional chairs but there isn't one like this on any of its 500 or so pages so consider it an unusual design. Some other dealers, one in particular that comes to mind, would treat you to a load of blather about it 'surviving from the zenith of the mid victorian period' - refer to it as 'she' and then list its defects as the icing on the cake of decrepitude before hitting you with a price that would leave any sane connoisseur of the antique reeling in disbelief. We on the other hand won't insult you. It is old - it shows signs of old repairs, knocks, scrapes and abrasions - it is however eminently useable (but not if you are too broad in the beam) - it is £195

Mahogany Glazed Bookcase
US one sheet (27 by 41 inch) poster for the 1951 movie Westward the Women. This is a re-release poster printed circa 1960 but even so is well over 50 years old and for just £35 (including insured postage to your address) would enhance the wall of your bachelor pad, warehouse apartment, garage, cafe, restaurant or almost any place with wall space enough. A talking point too perhaps with chauvinistic interpretations possible - hedonistic male city types transporting truckloads of the fairer sex down to their 'grand design' waterside second homes situated here in the West Country etc..no that's too silly - anyway here's a genuinely old advertising poster for a lot less than the price of a good bottle of champagne. NB - Like virtually all genuine vintage cinema posters this has mailing folds, marks and or signs of wear accrued during its display in various cinemas - it is not a pristine, mint reproduction but a genuinely old patinated artifact. The degree of wear and overall condition obvious varies from poster to poster and if you would like an exact condition report on this particular one please do ask.

Pine 'Knock-down' Wardrobe
Late 19th Century/early 20th century Petit Point (tent stitch) floral purse, with intricate metalwork frame and lapis clasp and decoration. This is a charming and intricate hand worked pattern of many stitches, (this stitch being a tiny diagonal stitch)the flowers blending into one another in very atmospheric manner. There are little flowers all along the frame and each link of the chain is ridged. The blue lapis stones add a distinctive finishing touch. Sadly, the interior of the purse, which is corded silk, has deteriorated badly.

Antique Petit Point Purse with Chain & Lapiz Clasp
English oak chest of drawers from circa 1670 with mitred mouldings, desirable proportions and graduated drawer layout. This splendid chest, which is absolutely quintessential of its period, has come through its 350 odd years with a few minor repairs. Whilst the brass escutcheons are very likely the originals it is fitted with, at least, its third set of brasses (these being of a style some 30 years later than the piece itself). However, importantly, it has the unusual distinction of remaining absolutely rot and worm free. It measures 39 inches in width, 35 inches high and has a depth of a generous 23 inches.

A pair of floss silk embroidered pictures, Oriental views, with Mount Fuji in the back ground. Both embroideries are worked in long stitch and each tree has its trunk and branches subtly coloured to show true perspective, the paths and drive ways wind off into the distance, the foregrounds framed with either branches or blossom. One picture would seem to epitomise Autumn and the other Spring/summer, using colours russets greens and pinks in all shades. Both pictures are in their original frames, dating most probably from the 1920s. Size, exterior of frame 16" x 8 1/4".
