New Stock - Small is Beautiful . Georgian Oak Chest of Drawers

New on the shop floor this morning; this delightful and rare early 19th.c oak chest of drawers of tiny proportions (30" x 18" x 31"). It is oak lined with a lovely colour and patina and dates from around 1800. Small furniture like this is always at a premium simply because more people can accomodate it.

Late 18th.c. oak dresser base. Conwy valley c.1790. A superb piece of locally made furniture. This was bought privately from up the valley last week and it is now out on the shop floor fully restored and looking great. The timber has that great colour and patina unique to North Wales oak furniture.

New Stock - Art Deco Dining Suite

Congratulations to Mr Collinge for his appearance on the Billy Butler show on radio Merseyside this afternoon. He is replacing John Crane as the expert on their regular antiques phone-in whilst John is away for a few weeks. He will be on again next Tuesday from 2pm so listen in or better still phone up for a valuation.
New stock arrives almost everyday here at the warehouse. This is an interesting Walnut Art Deco dining suite which has just arrived this afternoon. A good extending dining table, 8 chairs, a super little side table and there is a sideboard too. It is all there but could do with a little work. I will post another photo when the restorers have brought it back to its former glory.

New Stock - Late 18th.c. Oak Gate Leg Table.

Morning everyone. This table has just had a quick wax from our restorer Tony and was added to the shop floor moments ago. It is a late 18th.c. oak drop leaf dining table dating from around 1790. With beautiful pale oak on the top and a good turned base. It would sit 6 people comfortably - 8 at a push.
£1495 including delivery throughout the North West.
