Antique Painted Satinwood Gondola Stool by Druce & Co£495.00 + VAT
This antique painted satinwood gondola stool was made by Druce & Co in the Victorian period. It has exquisite painted decorations all over which are in themselves works of art. The two themes seem to be musical instruments & floral work. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate the fine details. It's in good original condition & has just been polished & re-upholstered. There is a bit of rubbing of some of the paintwork, mainly on the top rail, but there is so much paintwork that one hardly notices. I think it was designed as a dressing table stool, but it could have various uses. We have photographed the makers label too.

As the owner of a fine London home during the early reign of Queen Victoria, a person of note would certainly have ‘Druce & Co’ on their list of places to shop for furniture needs.
Established in the Marylebone area of London, on the corner of Blandford Street and Baker Street (later to be made so famous as the home of Sherlock Holmes by the legendary British writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle), in the mid-19th century, on the site of the previously named ‘Baker Street Bazaar’.
Thomas Charles Druce collated and displayed fine furniture from skilled makers throughout the globe. His son, Herbert, was an integral part of the business – taking over the running in 1864 when Thomas passed away.
With a keen eye for quality the Druce & Co company traded successfully throughout the Victorian and Edwardian eras, the Great War, and into WW2 when, at the end of 1940, German bombers destroyed most of the building and stocks.
Antique Queen Anne Style Burr Walnut Desk or Dressing Table
This antique walnut table could be used as a desk or a dressing table. It’s very impressive & is in excellent condition, having just been French polished.

The front is a kind of inverted serpentine shape & it has a very generous sized kneehole space.

Antique French Burr Walnut Dressing Table£2,500.00 + VAT
This stunning antique French dressing table is very high quality & has fabulous features. The wood looks like a very tight burr walnut, but it could be something more exotic like Amboyna. We have had it polished, however there is natural ageing showing mainly on the top, which give it more character & in keeping with the rest of this piece. The well defined gilt bronze mounts, candle holders, feet & handles are amazing quality. Please enlarge the images to see how nice they are. You will see that the gilding has rubbed in places & you can see the bronze underneath. See the amazing detail everywhere, especially the floral decoration running up either side. It's even on the tighteners for the mirror & on the feet. The adjustable mirror is bevelled & there are three drawers in the table, with lovely handles. The back is all polished too & the mirror can be taken off when transporting. I would say this dressing table days to around the 1890-1900 period & it's in good condition all over.
