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.
A really great hutch table with wonderful design and fabulous color. It is in amazing condition with the only work done was the legs ended to raise the overall height of the table. The top is 46 1/2' x 46" round and the height when the top is up is 58" high and the height with the top down as a table is 26 1/2" high. Table is probably New Jersey and dates to the late 18th early 19th Century.
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.
With great surface and the neatest interior, this hanging cupboard is usable in many places. Neat over a table, desk or chest and perfect in a bathroom. The cupboard is untouched and is 21" wide x 26" high x 6 1/2" deep.
Livery cupboards have become very hard to find. This one is 17th Century and English. It is a little unusual as it has the four drawers under the cupboard. The very best part of this piece is the witches hex sign crudely scratched into the top and one side. These marks were put on pieces to bring a household good luck and ward off any evil. It measures 36" high x 31" wide x 10" 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.
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.
GATE LEG TABLE
This English gate leg table has the most fantastically wonderful legs and turnings. It is made of yew wood and dates to the mid to late 17th Century. Will easily seat 6 people with plenty of room for each.
