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″).
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.
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.
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, subject to contract. 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.
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 gone on sale or return loan recently.
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 replacing, it’s easier to remove when working on these pieces as it gets in the way, but the small oval escutcheons were left on as they caused me little worry, although not original, they have been there for a while by the looks of things.
This photo is showing a lot of work completed, and gives an idea of just how fab 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.
Made in Dublin, around 1863, the makers had premises there. Haiz & Isele.
Wooden movement in the Black Forest style, in a local case.

Here is a triple framed gilt mirror, 53″ by 28″ and it will be going to Bibury on May 7th, interested, pop by and make an offer, I would like to get £250 for it, and yes, I have re-glued the missing moulding back on it, just noticed it in the picture!
