Victorian Gilt Overmantel Mirror
Edwardian inlaid display cabinet of classical proportions with a single glass shelf and original lock and key. The interior is backed and lined with old wallpaper but we have left this as it is rather than re-doing in velvet, satin or similar as our choice of colour might not be yours and thus its price allows for this improvement to be carried out by the purchaser. Vital statistics are 54 inches high by 36 inches wide and 16 inches deep.

Many moons ago this fine Victorian cast iron park bench was damaged and then crudely repaired with a wooden leg and an iron splint. Usable as is (obviously with fresh wooden slats) if you like somewhat quirky faded elegance or could be restored, re-configured to utilise one end only in conjunction with a wall/ alcove - or perhaps you have a single matching end that could be united with the best of these.

Victorian Cast Iron Park Bench ends to restore
Splendid Victorian iron gate salvaged many years ago from the Great Western Railway South Brent to Kingsbridge branch line after it closed. This line ran from the main Penzance to london line station of South Brent to Kingsbridge via Avonwick, Gara Bridge and Lodiswell. Opened in 893 it closed in the early 1960s. For further details of this line, known as the 'Primrose Line', there is information on the internet. This imposing and heavy gate measures approximately 7ft 6in and although unrestored is in very sound condition with minimal rusting. Before hanging it would need the base 'pegging' as its original pivot is long gone (very likely worn out). If cosmetic improvement was sought the top bar would need heating and straightening as well as the tip of one spear redone (both a relatively simple job for a blacksmith or someone with access to gas welding equipment). NB - what may appear to be heavy corrosion in the photos is in fact peeling and flaking layers of paint - red lead over the original GWR cream.

Set of four inlaid Edwardian chairs. With their (velvet) upholstered seats these finely crafted, but sturdy, chairs would be equally at home in the dining, sitting or bedroom. At some time in the future the webbing will need to be renewed but this unusual matched set is perfectly usable as they are for the time being.

A rather unusual bobbin turned, rush seated arm chair dating, probably, from the 1920s - or '30s in spite of the fact that it is of Arts & Crafts style and has the impression of being somewhat older it is likely of Continental origin. It is of oak, with a degree of ebonisation that has worn to a good patina, its joints are sound and it has a generous width: but to be frank it is more suitable for occasional sitting rather than an evening's relaxation in front of the fire with a good book.

An attractive 4 drawer chest from circa 1900 of simple design yet elegant proportions - its original ornate brass handles and escutcheons giving it a lift from the utilitarian that would allow it to be equally at home 'upstairs or downstairs'. Predominantly of pine it is solid wood throughout (note no plywood for the drawer bases as was beginning to be used on cheaper products by this period) and is solidly constructed with traditional dovetailing and joints. Its original locks are all in situ but, as in so often the case, the key has been mislaid at some point.....but who locks their drawers? Will it fit in your house? Well - it's 40 inches, 18 inches deep and 32 inches high.

A rather elegant early 19th century drop leaf pedestal table - the top of plum pudding mahogany with central backgammon board and a drawer at either end. Considering its age this attractive piece is in very sound and eminently usable condition but on account of a slight air of 'scruffiness' which would perhaps preclude it from some peoples' homes it can be yours for just £465. The 'scruffiness', or patina, includes wear to drawer runners (they still function as they should however), ring pulls on one drawer are non matching replacements (correct originals on other drawer illustrated), a c 2inch chip on one rule joint and the top is faded and somewhat marked. The latter comprising of two or three faintish drink glass rings, other small 'spills' and stains (from the exuberance of players?) and the lacquer of the backgammon board scratched (especially on buff ground) and marked. All that said this is an unusual games table, which, on account of its size would double for other uses and make a characterful addition to the antique household.
