Oak Welsh Dresser Base c.1790.

More images here of the dresser base from the November 27th post. Now cleaned, restored and repolished and out on the floor looking fabulous. A fine example of a North Wales dresser base from the late 18th.c. Oak throughout with original handles and good shaped door panels, the shelf inside is made of a single board. Altogether a splendid piece of antique Welsh furniture.

Arts & Crafts Bedroom Suite.

Following on from our Liberty & Co. hall robe (see November 20th) here is some more fantastic Arts & Crafts furniture. This stylish walnut bedroom suite arrived on Friday afternoon. It needs a little restoration and repolishing but retains its original handles and mirrors and its superb inlaid door panels in steel and contrasting timbers. The wardrobe even has its original silk lining. I shall post again when it emerges from the workshop.

4 Panel Oak Box Settle c.1780.

In need of a little restoration but what a superb piece of country furniture. This handsome oak box settle with a generous seat and four panel back is a new arrival here at the shop this morning.

Very Large Edwardian Oak Double Gate Leg Table.

New this morning is this excellent quality 8 seater Edwardian oak drop leaf table. A double gate leg base with substantial carved barley twist legs and stretchers. In good solid condition requiring only a polish over. When fully open the top measures an impressive 60" x 77".
Also purchased at the same time was an oak dresser of the same period, indeed it is thought these two pieces were originally purchased together when new in the early 1900's.
