Allover Printed C19th Cotton Paisley Shawl
Travelling vanity case with silver topped glass containers, hair brushes and other accessories, including notebook and mirror in leather cases. Very good leather case complete with dark green moire silk lining and somewhat travel worn weather cover - both monogrammed. NB silver tops are not all matching and contents are not entirely complete, but very nearly - nevertheless this is a wonderfully evocative gentlemans' companion from days gone by and as such would enhance a suitable room, shop, stage or film set.

Traveling Vanity Case -Silver topped accoutrements
A loveable pair of dolls for the those who like such things - we are not very keen but as these came via a clearance here they are ready and waiting for new and appreciative homes. There's a bisque Kewpie for £45 that needs its arms re-attaching and a 1950s prestige that is pretty good for its years at £20....Condition? - Kewpie needs its arms attaching - The Prestige is the youngest of this little duo and is in fair shape but the its eyes are a little reluctant to blink demurely - more of a lazy droop of the eyelids.

3 Drawer Pine Dining / Work Table
Good quality Victorian mahogany extending or 'wind out' dining table with its original extra leaf. Having a width of 42 inches it measures 51 inches long retracted and 72 inches extended with extra leaf fitted. Straight out of the farmhouse from which we bought it this spacious table is ready for immediate use as is providing you do not want a showpiece and is priced accordingly. Importantly its wind out carriage operates smoothly by means of its original handle and is entirely worm free (the beech sections of these are not always so). The (original and correct) extra leaf is of a somewhat darker colour than the rest of the table due to it normally being stored away from the light. The polish on the mahogany of the remainder, as you can see from the photos, is somewhat faded but if the whole was re French polished it would respond well if a richer reddish hue was desired. Castors are later replacements and although serving their purpose well a set of old or reproduction brass or brass and china ones would be more appropriate. Our price of £395 more than allows for it to be fitted with fresh castors and its cosmetic deffects to be remedied. On the other hand if it is acceptable to you 'as is' it represents an extraordinarily good table for a very reasonable price.

42 inches by 72 inches.

19th C extending mahogany dining table
Found in an outhouse of a mid-Devon farm where they used to make cider from their own small orchard this small press was made in neighbouring Cornwall by Carne & son of St Keyne, near Liskeard. (Carnes were in business as Agricultural Engineers and Blacksmiths in St Keyne until 1921). Although unused for many years its mechanism still operates smoothly but most probably its future role will be decorative rather than practical. Its wooden components are of elm with pitch pine underparts. The elm has evidence of some historic woodworm but to make sure they are truly so we have anointed it with suitable fluids. Its height varies according to whether it is screwed up or down but is roughly 3 feet. NB - in the fourth photo we have shown the various associated paraphernalia that came with the press - wooden container, wooden plate, muslin etc. They must have been used in the past for extracting the juice from some variety of fruit but are relatively flimsy and in our opinion not in any way suitable for pressing apples - or even decorative come to that. They will however remain with the press but if the new owner wished to put it to work once again a suitable robust receptacle to contain the apples would have to be sourced or fabricated.

Large brass cauldron or jam pan
A rather homely little early 19th century arm chair in mahogany. Ready for immediate use if your sensibilities veer towards the shabby but its striped covering fabric was not applied by a craftsman as you can see! Seat width at base of arms is about 17 inches and height of seat about 16 so not a 'big 'un'.

Four old French pewter measures - 1/2 litre, 1/2 litre, 2 deciliter and 1 decilitre. All have maker's marks. As we are by no means experts or even knowledgable on continental pewter and AA stipulate a date we have assigned a notional period of date of 1925 to 40 - they may be older (which we doubt, or younger.
