A new favorite here at the shop; this delightful Arts and Crafts oak dining table and six chairs. Shown here together with our Arts and Crafts sideboard now repolished and looking great. They make a superb set - notice how the foot detail matches on table, chairs and sideboard.

This unusual late 19th.c. black lacquered Chinoiserie side cabinet is a new arrival here at the shop today. Superbly decorated with oriental scenes on the door and drawer front and floral designs on both side and the top. The inside is vivid red. I will post again when it has been through the workshop.

A great piece of retro design and a very useful piece of furniture. A mid 20th.c. stand alone kitchen unit by Sheffco c.1960. With cupboards and drawers and a fold down enamel work top hidden behind the blue tamboured doors. In good usable condition with all original chromed handles and round ventilation grills in the doors.
Seen here together with a couple of other great items of early office furniture our early 20th.c. oak plan chest. Purchased from a local architect's office, restored and repolished with new handles. Splits into two sections for ease of delivery.
