Georgian Mahogany Card Table.
Shown here undergoing a little tidy! Call for details, or try an offer! Hoping to have it ready for March events! Yes it’s done now! Retains the cloth interior, but the overall finish is pretty good I think, here it is…… offers invited, the asking price is £950. Viewing recommended.
Georgian Mahogany Chest of Drawers.
Now ready is this fine Georgian Mahogany Chest of Drawers, having four full width drawers of graduated depths. The panel back and underneath are real treats to see from a cabinetmakers point of view as it shows a sign of good quality. Remedial waxing has been done on one end, and the original locks refitted, as I did remove them as I aim to refit them with an attractive working key if possible, but it does appear they haven’t been working for some time.
Hope you like it, the measurements are 1000mm wide, 483mm deep, and 737mm high. Price, well, could well go to the trade, but my asking price is £1250, but as always offers are invited for this. Restorers are used to being haggled with, and I’m trying to clear some space in my workshop, so just make an offer and see, we could both win perhaps!
Early Georgian Walnut Chair.
Here is a fine walnut chair, just taken the photo in the dappled light, and it makes the Walnut so fabulous a colour. I do have a second one of these, but it really does need significant repair, it’s been on my to do list for ages, but this one is ready to go! Still an attractive but delicate chair, I use it every day, but gently, it’s older than many! Offers around £300 please.
Hope you like it!
Oak Arched Door Cabinet with Drawer.
Here I have an oak cabinet with drawer above two doors forming an arch. The interior having a single shelf, with unusual cut outs on one side, perhaps for bootjacks or wine bottles? There are lovely old keys for the door and drawer locks. This had it’s first day out and although liked by many people, I still have it, so offers are invited.
The measurements are (approximately!).
Height: 895mm (35 1/2″) Width: 657mm (25 13/16″) Depth: 360mm (14 1/4″). Offers around £600 please!
Oak Longcase Clock.
Here is a square brass dial clock, signed “Geo Jackson, Gainsboro”. Will be on show on Sunday October 1st, despite not being totally finished.
Good colour and patina, some remedial replacements needed on the hood where the mouldings have been over dusted, and broken the wooden teeth! The lower later additional moulding been on a while, but would benefit from some improving, seems over engineered to me!
Cutting a key for the trunk door this week, and here is the dial, just before I add it to the clock case for regulating.
This is the clock, just waiting for a few remedial improvements to the case. A few small areas on the case and hood need attention, but it’s available now, just ask and I hope to add better photos later today! Its got a good solid tock and a great bell sound too. Offers around £650 please!
This bureau needs another wax and a buff up, and the baize here is an old one, so may benefit with a replaced nicer leather, of a colour of your choice. A sweet little item, and not too expensive at around £350 I hope you’ll agree, but as ever, offers always encouraged!
Pine Side Table
Here is a pine and beech side table, the legs being beech, with long single drawer. Good colour and recently waxed and buffed, so nice colour and patina. £120
17 1/2″ deep.
Georgian Mahogany Pie Crust Table.
Currently undergoing restoration, here is a fabulous table, being of delicious colour, here is the base, photographs taken early June, this is something which I am enjoying doing and can be viewed at any time, I am hoping to have it finished for the mid autumn, as there are more important things to do at the moment. The finish being built up is just layers of wax, this item was very dark when I got it, and no grain could be seen on most of the base, but I will not be using any shellac on the base whatsoever, and the wood is starting to show its fabulous colour. When I start the top, I shall photograph that too!
Georgian Oak Longcase Clock. (SOLD!)
The dial signed by David Rogers of Saffron Walden. Eight day movement, and yes, I forgot to pop the finials on, they are oak acorns on the outside, and a simple turning on the centre.
Height and more photos to follow!
This clock has been sold. Another Oak Longcase will be on show here soon, square brass dial, “Geo Jackson of Gainsboro”.
Mahogany Banjo Barometer.
According to one antiques magazine I have just read, I am underselling this as it should be at least £500! But! It’s here for less than half of that! Yes £235 will bag this, how’s that for high pressure selling! Oh yes, and I have more barometers too, please ask as they undergoing work. I even have one with the name tag “Mafia!”
Ash & Elm Windsor Armchair. Offers around £185 please.
Often referred to as being a “Ladies Chair” as being of slight proportions, it’s a very comfy chair. Having several old repairs always adds to the character of Windsor chairs, this is also of good colour, and very sturdy. Could be in your kitchen for around £185, and it looks better now I’ve waxed it and lots of elbow grease applied!
Georgian Mahogany Pedestal Table.
Sold at Bibury Antiques Fair, April 2nd, I have a smaller one which is coming to the fair on September 3rd, and it’s a lighter colour, but yet again with a birdcage.
Thank you for looking.
Edwardian Walnut Sofa.
Edwardian Upholstered sofa, very comfy and at around £500, I can’t believe that’s an unfair price is it?
At around 5′ 6″ long, more accurate sizes to follow, but would look good on a landing or anywhere really!
Oak Pedestal Table. (Sold now, but, I have a paler one just being tidied up!).
This oak pedestal table has a fixed top and has never had a tilting mechanism.
The top is approximately 20″ in diameter, and as with many old round tops, the cross grain has shrunk a little, as would be expected. The height is just over 27 1/4″ from memory. This has now sold and gone to Ireland. I have a sweet one coming soon, just being fettled in the workshop, a lovely light colour, fruitwood, think it’s cherry!
I have a few bureaux, but this is my best, others in need of finishing and could be bought quite cheaply, they don’t need much doing to them. Please ask!
Not quite finished yet, needs the handles sorting, as they were removed for polishing, key has been cut for the drawer locks, and interior lock, the fall lock is in progress of being done. The interior needs a replacement leather, and the fall needs putting back as I removed it to make it easier to work on the whole item
This photo is showing a lot of work completed, and gives an idea of just how fabulous this will be when complete, the removal of the fall allows looking inside as well as enjoying the drawers in the same photo. I have chosen a pale leather for this, as I thought a dark one would be insufficient contrast, what colour would you put on? This is most likely the heaviest bureau I have ever owned, would be nice if I could sell it by the pound!
Mahogany Longcase Clock. Offers around £650 please.
Made in Dublin, around 1863, the makers had premises there. Haiz & Isele.
Wooden movement in the Black Forest style, in a local case.
