'Above Holne on the Dart' Victorian oil painting
A particularly handsome mid 19th century French Armoire of classical and restrained proportions in cherry with chestnut side and rear panels. Standing 215 cm high it has an overall width of 140cm with external depth of 59cm and 55cm internally - this allowing plenty of room for clothing on coat hangers. Unrestored and original, with the exception of a later brass rail for hangers, it has the deep warm glow that well polished cherry acquires with age, whilst the chestnut side panels are of a more sombre hue. The are are pair of original drop in shelves to the interior - one of which has to be removed in order to hang clothes. Brass hinges, long brass escutcheon and its lock are original but its key had been mislaid by its last owners (they are still looking and hopefully it will surface). Both cornice and doors are easily removable but the remainder is in one piece. It is structurally sound, stands square on its well formed and substantial feet and what traces of old woodworm that there are was treated long ago and is therefore historic.

19th century French Cherry Wood Armoire
An elegant pair of Georgian fire irons in steel and brass. The fretted shovel has an historic riveted strengthening gusset as can be seen in photos. This was likely done at the time that these irons were made or shortly after as they design would have been impossibly weak without - whatever the case the shovel remains structurally sound and completely usable. Price of £160 to include postage to a UK address.

A diorama of two three masted sailing vessels on a choppy sea contained in a 12 inch high glass flagon having a turned wooden stopper inset with a Guernsey (Channel Isles) 8 doubles coin. This unusial piece of nautical folk art most probably dates from the 1930s so it is likely that the 1834 copper coin was used in centennial fashion - perhaps by a fisherman or sailor of St Peter Port - the likely maker of such a thing? We are not convinced that the wicker work adds to the general appearance but that is how it came to us and we shall leave it just so - thus giving the new owner the option to remove it or not.

Pine Hall Stand / Tree
An attractive and extremely useful mid 19th century tilt top wine or occasional table in mahogany. Standing 28 inches high its nicely figured 24 inch diameter top and robust base makes it rather more useful than similar table of more petite dimensions. The tilting facility is fully operational and retains its original snap catch thus allowing it to put to one side when not in use if desired.

Supremely evocative set of four framed Cambridge University Rugby Team photographs spanning the years 1922 to 1925. All in their original mounts and frames. St John's College Rugby XV 1922-1923 - runners up knock out competition. St John's College Rubgy XV 1923-1924 St John's College Rugby XV 1924-1925 Cambridge University Rugby Seniors Match October 1924 All photographed, mounted and framed by E Stern and Sons of Cambridge with hand executed calligraphy and armorials. Over their very nearly 100 years they have suffered a little from the ravages of time and perhaps a little boisterous behaviour - the former evidenced by holes made during occasional visitations from Mr Woodworm (this now historic and gone) and the latter by some scuffing, scraping and soiling of the mounts as a result of broken glass in three of them (this long ago replaced). All in all however a wonderful step back in time to the days when young gentlemen fought honourably upon the playing fields of old England........

A circa 1800 Cornish Pine Dresser with a 4 drawer base and astragal glazing to the upper section. In common with virtually all pieces of furniture that have been in daily use for 200 odd years there have been repairs carried out but overall It is in very good condition with original cornice and quartered bobbin turned applied mouldings typical of West Cornwall. When acquired the drawers were fitted with modern handles so they have have been replaced with appropriate Savill's reproductions. The generously deep interior too has been re-painted in a more sympathetic hue but in all other respects, such as the wide back boards and single panel drawer bases, this handsome dresser is as it was made. Country furniture is always difficult to date with exactitude but it is safe to say that beautifully proportioned example dates from prior to 1820 as it has the elegance and colour that sets that period of pine apart from that of Victorian and later times. All items purchased from Cullompton Antiques are covered by the Distance Selling Regulations which give the buyers the right to cancel the purchase within 7 days after receipt of the item , for a full refund less RETURN transport costs .
