Antique Victorian Mahogany Doctors Examination Couch

This amazing piece came out of a medical practice in the West End of London & was in a very tatty condition when I helped carry it out. The old faux leather upholstery was badly torn & the webbing was broken. Basically, this piece has been restored, polished & re-upholstered. I believe it was made to be used as an examination couch, with all the medical equipment to be stored in the drawers & compartments below. This couch is antique Victorian & mahogany. It has a very useful ratchet system, which enables one to recline at different heights or lay completely flat. It has boldly turned legs & a polished back. This piece could easily be used for it's original purpose or would make a fantastic prop in a doctors surgery or to be used in the home. This item was also made in London (see label). Please enlarge all the images to really appreciate all the details & functions of this piece.

Antique Empire Style Marble Top Brass Mounted Console Table

Very unusual antique Empire ebonized console side table with a marble top, brass sections & brass fittings. This item is quite old, but I find it hard to put an exact date on it. The marble has been replaced, because it was badly damaged. The table itself was quite distressed & the brass was dirty, so it's all been re-polished. It could be 19th century & French, but I'm not sure. This table is very slim from back to front & the marble just lifts off. It is free standing, but needs to be against a wall, otherwise it would be easy to knock over. This table would look good in contemporary or traditional settings.

Pair of Antique French Carved Painted Salon Armchairs

Stunning pair of original distressed painted antique French salon armchairs. I must stress that the finish on these chairs is totally original & not like those many 'manufactured' examples being passed of as original everywhere. You can see the many layers of old preparation showing through the surface, which gives of many colours. What's even better, is that the needlepoint is original to the chairs & is also in great condition. The needlepoint is also a perfect compliment to the colour on the frames. There is a lot of detailed carvings all over the frames. The frames have a great shape all over & the wear on the paint work is all natural. These chairs are exactly as I got them & they seem very sturdy. Personally, I would leave them as they are, although if the needlepoint fabric was steam cleaned, the colours would come out more vividly. I'm not sure of the exact age, but would hazard a guess at around the 1860-80's period, but judging from the quality of the carving, they may be older.

Pair of Antique Wing Armchairs

This pair of antique wing armchairs are very comfortable & have generous proportion. They are wide on the backs & seats, plus they sit high off the floor. These armchairs have slightly humped backs & swept out arms. I would say they date to around the 1920-30's period & they are in excellent condition. They have just been re-upholstered in a fairly neutral linen fabric with new cushions too. The front legs are beautifully hand carved with hairy paws on ball & claw feet. I always find this model the most comfortable to sit on, particularly as I have a very sensitive back. I can't quite work out the wood on the legs, but it's either mahogany or walnut.
