A very attractive Georgian style Mahogany frame armchair dating to around 1900 which has been totally re-upholstered in a purplish fabric.


Set of ten oak dining chairs

 

A good set of ten Art Nouveau oak dining chairs dating to about 1900. The chairs are a lovely rich oak colour. They have a pleasantly shaped nouveau style back splat, rush seats and pad feet. This set of antique chairs are in good condition having been cleaned, repaired and waxed.


Wedgwood 'Landscape' jug

A pretty transfer printed Wedgwood jug dating to around 1900, as it has just 'England' on the backstamp, rather than the later 'Made in England'. It is slightly unusual in that the main transfer is in blue, but the transfer that runs down the handle is in black.


SOLD

Gilt framed gouache painting, dating to 1921. R.J Lugg

A nice little framed painting of Belstone Moor, Dartmoor 1921 - these details are pencilled on the reverse. I believe it is a gouache painting, as it is too thick for watercolour. The painting has good colour, and is in its original 1920s gild mount and frame. The painting is signed R.J.Lugg (Robert James Lugg). Looking online, he seems to have been quite a prolific artist, and there are images of numerous similar artworks showing moors, heathers etc.


A present from the Crystal Palace, tankard in glass

 

What a lovely little souvenir of a trip to the Crystal Palace in Victorian times. This little tankard is handblown in clear glass. It then overpainted bands of ruby, into which is etched 'A present from the Crystal Palace', and a vine or hops design. I don't imagine this was an expensive souvenir at the time, it is quite rustic and not very symmetrical (looks a bit drunk), but it is quite charming, and also unusual. I have never seen one before. I purchased it from an elderly lady who was moving to a retirement home. She can remember it being in her home since she was a child. I imagine it dates to the latter Victorian days, c1890. In good condition.

A fine display cabinet from the early 20th century. This cabinet is made of rosewood and stands on simulated rosewood legs (Beech wood, with a rosewood effect. It has lockable glazed doors, and three glass shelves. The back of the cabinet has been lined in complementary fabric.

A good quality 19th century regency Georgian mahogany pier wall hanging mirror. This mirror is English and retains the original backboards and silver mirror plate. The mirror does show signs of its age.
