This page is a catalogue of unrestored stock, I haven’t added prices as some of the items are having work done on them occasionally, as time permits, so just shout if you like anything! Should you wish, it could be your next project, or I will restore it for you, or something you already own, I often do that! Maybe you have something in your house, barn or shed which you would like help with, please ask and I’ll try to oblige!
Restoration work on items is often carried out at your own home, so saving on removal costs, time and energy!
Here’s my offerings!
Rosewood Bookcase with Drawer.
Here I have what will end up being a fabulous bookcase, and once full, either of books, or maybe trinkets, nick-nacks and the like, would look super! I have started to clean this and it’s looking good so far, despite only having done one end, the shelves, and drawer. Originally this had a marble, top, as there are no screw holes where a wooden one would have been secured. Here it is shown as it was recently, still part finished, but please ask if you are interested in buying, it does look better than this now, but, if you want to make an offer, please do, maybe that would see it going your way, and as many of you know, I like to sell things as it helps me eat!
Folding Bagatelle Game.
Here’s a fun thing! Approximately 8′ long when open, and 2′ wide, folding to 5″ thick when shut and held by the two hook and eyes at one end. This is an item which obviously needs a little tidy, but either it can be bought as it is, or I can do the tidying! Lets have a chat about it and see what we can sort out, would be fun to see it looking good again!
Elm and Oak Corner Cabinet.
The item undergoing a little restoration, basically tidying up, and replacing the modern plywood bottom, with old timber from an Elm Coffer, of about the same period.
Here are a few photographs, hope you like them.
Here it is as I got it, and now there has been some work on it. Please ask should you wish to see this item, as it is rather nice, and although had a replacement base, is mostly original. The interior paint shows that it was a piece used for display with the doors open as well as closed.
