Sir John Soane - Bank - C19th lithograph
Unique metamorphic dining table in mahogany from the first quarter of the 19th century. Comprising three especially made, and exactly matching (with the exception of one that has an end drawer), tables that link to make one which measures just under 9ft 10 inches long by 36 inches wide. Totally original with their correct pegs to locate their joining and full complement of correct brass castors. Some sunlight fading, especially to one but we have left them as they are so that the next owners can choose whether or not to re-finish (we have an in house restorer who can carry this out if desired). The table's tops are made from single planks with handsome grain and almost certainly hearken from the same tree The configuration of this piece allows for the tables to be also used separately in which case one has three matching smaller dining tables measuring some 40 by 36 inches apiece. Their 36 inch width, either made up into one table or separated into three allows for ample leg room. NB - although each section fits together very well, and quite obviously the table has seen some 200 years use as it is, we can supply good quality reproduction forked clip for the undersides if the purchaser felt them to be a worthwhile addition.

Unique early C19th metamorphic 10 ft dining table
Why on earth I bought this I cannot think but perhaps its was the romantic image of repelling attackers with this fort's array of armament. A bevy of rather feeble spring operated German tinplate guns arranged around the ramparts. No maker's name on this so presumed to be home made. Hours of fun for boys and fathers alike, and for only £65, if they have some soldiers to defend or attack this grand fortification.

Architect's Table
Georgian mahogany crib. Can either be used suspended from its stand in which case in rocks - or - demounted and placed on the floor, garden or any suitable location as a safe enclosure to stop baby 'escaping'. My (now 29 year old) daughter spent the early months of her life sleeping in it, to which end we had a safety mattress made which goes with it. More recently a friend's (now 14 year old) son spent his formative first months with it. Its mattress of course might be considered out of date by now but a modern replacement would be easy to source I'm sure. The entire ensemble is in good working, rocking order but due to its age and considerable usage it has had some repairs in the past.
