It's always exciting to find an American Pilgrim Chest. This one is from the North Shore of Massachusetts and is about 1680 to 1700. The feet and lid are original and a few age related repairs exist. At some point in its life it has been resurfaced.
With a totally awesome surface in deep brown, the 17th Century Spanish table is a wonderful addition to any collection. Absolutely in as found condition there are no replacements and the surface is very old if not original.
Just a simple chair with original surface. Usable anywhere. I think, they work really neat close to a hearth. A few repairs due to use and age.
Found and made in Illinois this cute little stool says:
For sitting only
Don't stand on it
The stool is 13 1/4" wide x 8 1/2" deep x 15" high.
BOOK REST OR STAND
In the very best dry untouched surface this book stand looks amazing with a leather book resting on its top. It is 19th Century but looks good with even early things including Pilgrim. Size is 15" wide x 13" deep x 4 1/2" high in front x 6 1/4" high at back.
From New England and most likely Massachusetts, this very honest and simple X base candle stand. Old mellow surface probably redone because of a poorly painted surface 50 or 60 years ago. This stand has a 14 3/4" diameter top and is 23 1/2" high.
CHILD'S WAINSCOT ARM CHAIR
Actually made in about the 1920's, this chair sure appears a lot earlier and works so well with period 17th Century pieces. Perfect with a poppet sittiing in the chair. Be sure to notice the wonderful inlay on the back. It is 28" high x 21" wide x 20" deep.
PAIR OF CHAIRS
Deaccessioned from Deerfield many years ago, the Charles II chairs are solid and very easy to sit in around a table. Professional restoration added iron straps to keep them from swaying as so many of these can do. One of the pair has lost its ball on the bottom of the feet and one of the finial nipples. The chairs have old black paint and the caning is in perfect condition.
Talk about a "GREAT" chair! This early 17th Century chair was once upholstered in silk which except for a tiny left between the tacks on the back is long gone. Sadly silk doesn't age well. The leather seat was added recently. A Tudor rose is in the center of the bottom stretcher. Measuring 46" high x 28" wide x 16 1/4" deep it is a very comfortable chair for most anyone. The frame is a very mellow and dry most likely original surface.
HANGING CORNER CUPBOARD
With shaped shelves and fluted columns, this hanging corner cupboard is truly elegant. In natural surface it is pine from England and dates from the late 18th Century to the early 19th Century. It is a perfect size measuring 42 1/2" high x 26" wide x 19" deep.
Yes, another book stand in super attic surface and a little smaller then the other one pictured above. This is in perfect condition and also great to display an early leather book. It is 13" wide x 9" deep x 3" high in the front and 6" high at the back.
A rarely seen Colonial Spanish Bench with the best carving and spindles. An old mellow surface the bench sits very well and is extremely solid. Written on the back are several Spanish words which I am trying to get translated.
LEATHER TABLE TOP CHEST
With the family crest on the top and the original lock and key, The leather box is really a very elegant piece. Probably English, the leather is in very fine condition and it measures 17" long x 12 1/2" deep x 7 1/2" high. Perfect on a table or chest.
