Just the best dry surface and the best form makes this coffer such an outstanding piece. It measures 63" wide x 23" deep x 25" high. In as found condition with no major repairs.This English example is mid 17th Century. It's Ex. Fiske and Freeman.
CHARLES II TABLE
Deacessioned from the Newbold-White House in North Carolina, this English table dates to Charles II. It has all its feet and no replacements. A few repairs to the top due to use and wear and the surface is original. Just a perfect size measuring 28" high x 18" deep x 26" wide.
Just a simple chair with original surface and no apologies. Usable anywhere I think they work really neat close to a hearth.
For those who LOVE leather, this is sure your piece. An old and still usable leather seat is on the neatest dry red stool. the stool, I believe, was once a chair that may have lost part of its back and the "waste not,want not" theory took over. It is 16" Wide x 13" Deep x 14" High.
Just a simple country mirror with its original black painted frame and nice old mirror glass. The frame has cut nails, the original back board, spline corners and is 9 1/8" wide x 11" high.
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.
This Bible /Document Box is a nice small size. It is 18 1/2" wide x 11" deep x 7" high. It is late 17th to early 18th Century and English. There are initials on the back and it retains the original snipe hinges although the hasp is long gone.
WILLIAM AND MARY SIDE CHAIR
WOW what a chair! This has to be one of the best William and Mary side chairs I have ever owned. It is English and late 17th to early 18th Century. Surface is old and possibly the original. It is a tall powerful presence with a fantastic crest and a finial on the center stretcher. Something I have never seen before. The chair is original but the velvet is newer.
Found in a camp in Maine this X Base Candlestand retains its original red wash surface and the best notched heavy feet. It is 29 1/2" high x 14 3/8 x 14 14" diameter top. A bit of glue was added to tighten up the top and base of the shaft but all pieces are original.
THREE LEG TABLE
Probably made in the late 1940's or 1950's, this table is extremely usable and looks fantastic with early things. Turnings on the legs are great and the size is 27 1/2" high x 26 1/2" x 26 1/2" top diameter making it perfect between 2 chairs or for eating.
X BASE CANDLESTAND
The candlestand has the best dry natural surface and all the pieces and parts started life together. Found in New England it has a metal band with square nails wrapped around the top, I guess, to hold the two board top together. Stand appears to be early 18th Century and is 23" high with a top that is 15" x 14 3/4" in diameter.
JOINED CHEST OF DRAWERS
Not very often do you find a joined chest that is late 17th Century with almost no restoration. The side hung drawers work so easily and all of the moldings are the original. Some minor foot damage but even that is minimal. The hardware is replaced,
