FURNITURE ETC

Three views of a rare mid 17th-century brass-studded leather-covered travelling close stool, believed to have been the property of King Charles II, the escutcheon surmounted by a crown.  In the 1970s I had it in the shop for months priced at £120. Those were the days!

A fine early 18th-century giltwood-framed mirror in the Baroque style

A George I walnut-veneered side table with hinged top opening to reveal a velvet-lined well, on cabriole legs with pad feet. The candlesticks are French, early 18th century

A 17th-century continental, probably Italian, ebony table cabinet, with central gallery and tabernacle cupboard between classical columns, and an arrangement of drawers, all with ripple-moulded borders enclosing ivory classical scenes with figures inlaid on walnut panels, on later turned feet and stand

A pleasing early George III mahogany tea chest with two caddies, of ogee form in the Chippendale style, with original brass furniture

A rare late Georgian brass-bound mahogany wine cooler and cover, for a single bottle

A superb quality mid 18th-century Chippendale style "plum-pudding" mahogany lowboy, about 96cm wide, the rather poor image recovered from an age-worn polaroid of circa 1975, when I bought and sold it. 

A fine pair of Regency rosewood X-form dressing stools, with Victorian petit-point needlework upholstery
