Sitting Comfortably!

Hello again, and on this weekend when fathers, grandfathers, sons and daughters are celebrating “Father’s Day” I thought there would be a lot of people in need of a rest! There’s also many folk who are having their first “Father’s Day” without their father being there, and I hope they can remember them well.

As a bit of fun, I have shown here a brass Windsor chair, and although a miniature, would be really comfortable if it was a full size one. Just shows we never know what can be found around the corner.

This has just come to me and I know it will be with me for a very long time as it’s small enough to keep and enjoy. Additionally, it has a makers label underneath and a date, 11.12.81 I have not decided yet whether it’s 1981, or 1881, but I’m pretty sure it’s the first. The label says No 56, but I wonder how many were made.

If you find another, let me know! Have a good weekend folks! We will be back on show in Bibury on July 7th. Maybe see you there? Regards, Andy.

Wee Brassy!
Small brass Windsor chair. No 56.

A French Connection

Hello again all.

Just a quick catch up after the fair today and I tried to photograph my favourite item I saw today, a difficult challenge as it was made from Lead Crystal. Without proper time allowance, or backdrops, I came up with this photo. This item is available for sale, I can give your number to the dealer if you are interested!

I’d be happy to have this perched on a window as I think it may be a little too good for my current car! Maybe if I had a falconry business I could buy it as a paperweight!

What would you do with it?

Regards, Andy.

It’s a summer-var stand!

Well, strictly not, but as ever I can’t resist a bad pun!

Recently I have tidied up a small stand for a client and to their delight, I called it a Samovar Stand, possibly the prettiest one I have ever had to improve, and so I hope you like it too.

Despite the heat and a chaotic summer, I am still restoring furniture, and keeping bees, and I’ll have a few photographs of my work on show at Bibury Village Hall this Sunday, August 5th, between 10 am and 4pm. Yes, refreshments are available, so pop in and say “hi” over a cup of coffee or tea!

Regards, Andy.

 

Summer Knees!

As the song doesn’t go!…….

Summer Knees, drifting away, blowing in the sunset of my mind!

Well, no sunset here to watch the eclipse, too cloudy, so that has been blown away!

Meanwhile, here are some knees which will be for sale with the rest of the table on Sunday August 5th! Pop in and say hi, we will be on show from 10am till 4pm at Bibury Village Hall.

May see you then! In the meantime, have a good day! 

Regards, Andy.
