A lace making 'pillow' in wood with fabric covering, adjustable slide and 2 built in drawers under - one for bobbins.. Almost certainly from the mid to late 19th century and most probably hearkening, we have been told, from Belgium. This very scarce piece, with its continental lace making associations, retains its much used fabric covering, card pattern as last used along with pins and has just over 60 bobbins in one of its drawers. A wonderful and rare prop to go with your collection of lace. It measures 18 inches (retracted) by 18 by 8.

Regency mahogany armchair - if you're keen on the lived in and (genuinely) distressed look this could be for you but if, on the other hand, your furnishings have to be immaculate - then definitely not. That said it is, despite several ancient repairs, perfectly useable just as it is and will continue to give years of sterling service. Would look super in a period gentleman's library or similar

A remarkably original campaign washstand from the early part of the 19th century in mahogany. Unlike many other pieces of campaign furniture this has never been restored or altered so one can see exactly what it always has been - if you get our drift. Even the fully functional and adjustable rising mirror has its original plate.

An early bed warming pan with engraved, pierced, and repousse ornamented overhanging lid over pan both in brass. Handle and pan frame is of wrought iron, the latter with with brass turning and finial. Overall length is 40 inches and the lid is 13 inches in diameter. Plentiful evidence of continuous use over many years and associated period repairs but without brittleness and subsequent cracking ('brass disease'). We would date it to the latter part of the 17th century but it could be early 18th and is most probably of English origin. Bed pans of this age are rare and are not to be confused with the copper 'country teashop' variety!

An unusual folding two panel screen...its exact original purpose we are afraid eludes us but for sure its could be put to good and decorative use in a shop, home or restaurant. Standing 64 inches high with each panel 30 inches wide. It is of superb quality with the thick glass panels bevelled on each side. One of the two little drop shelves is missing - but would they be needed? From its construction it looks to date from the late 19th century.

Water colour bearing the signature 'Ernest Dade' (1864 to 1935) depicting HMS Warrior passing by a (then) aged ship of the line in stormy conditions..............in original mount and frame. Overall measurements about 24 by 18 inches - image 14 1/2 by 10 1/2. HMS Warrior was designed and built in response to an aggressive French shipbuilding programme which saw the introduction of the first iron-clad warship La Gloire designed by the brilliant naval architect Stanislas Charles Henri Dupuy de Lome. Determined to see off this challenge to the supremacy of the Royal Navy the then First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir John Somerset Pakington, determined to build a ship so superior in terms of quality, speed, size, armament and armour that it would be inconceivable to France that she could take Britain on in a sea battle. When commissioned by Captain the Hon. Arthur Auckland Leopold Pedro Cochrane, on August 1st 1861, Warrior was the largest warship in the world, at 9,210 tons displacement she was fully 60% larger than La Gloire. The ship underwent minor modifications after a sea trial. In June 1862, she started active service in the Channel Squadron, patrolling coastal waters and sailing to Lisbon and Gibraltar. Having introduced a revolution in naval architecture, by 1864 Warrior was superseded by faster designs, with bigger guns and thicker armour. By 1871 she was no longer regarded as the crack ship she had once been, and her roles were downgraded to Coastguard and reserve services. In May of 1883 her fore and main masts were found to be rotten, and not considered worth the cost of repair, Warrior was placed in the reserve, eventually converted to a floating school for the Navy and re-named Vernon III in 1904. Put up for sale as scrap in 1924, no buyer could be found, and so, in March 1929 she left Portsmouth to be taken to Pembroke Dock and converted into a floating oil pontoon, re-named again as Oil Fuel Hulk C77. By 1978, she was the only surviving example of the 'Black Battlefleet' - the 45 iron hulls built for the Royal Navy between 1861 and 1877. Rescued and restored under the aegis of Sir John Smith the Warrior is nowadays on display at Portsmouth.
