Very impressive antique early Victorian mahogany buffet dating from the 1840-60's period. It's in very good condition, with no splits or warps & has just been polished. It has a shaped front gallery around the top & boldly turned columns supporting the three levels. The bottom two levels have shorter galleries & there are turned legs below with brass casters below. This is a very practicable piece of furniture & it's a long time since I had one of these models.
Antique walnut & maple bow fronted chest on chest of lovely slim proportions, dating to around the 1910 period. It's in excellent original condition with a lovely mellow colour, plus all the original brass handles & locks. The front section is a combination of burr walnut, figured walnut & birds eye maple. The drawers are also crossbanded & inlaid plus they are graduated in depth. There is a pull out brushing slide on the bottom section & it sits on splayed feet. This tallboy has a polished top & it comes apart in two section.
Fabulous pair of large antique Edwardian carved mahogany wing armchairs upholstered in green leather. They are in lovely original condition with crisp carvings on beautifully shaped frames. I'm not sure if the leather is original or not, because it's in such wonderful condition, but it could be. You can feel the crisp horse hair underneath the upholstery. They are well upholstered, hand tacked & have generous proportions, so are very comfortable. The mahogany frames are sturdy & in good original condition. There are some slight openings on the top corners of the wings, due to shrinkage, but there is no movements & it's no untoward. There is some fading mainly on the arms & a few small nicks around those parts, which is normal for chairs over 100 years old, but generally speaking I don't think they need touching. These armchairs also have original porcelain casters. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate the quality.
Good quality antique French bombe commode chest with the original marble top & floral marquetry on the front. It has gilt bronze mounts, handles, escutcheons & feet. I think the majority of the wood is Kingwood & the marquetry is made up of many other exotic woods. There are locks on the two drawers, but I don't think we have a key. This piece is in very good condition as is the marble & I would date it to around the 1890-1910 period.
