Antique Re-Constructed Burr Walnut Open Bookcase
This bookcase has been reconstructed from antique wardrobes, pianos, etc.
Antique Victorian reconstructed burr walnut open bookcase, in good condition & of lovely proportions. This piece has been reconstructed using old wood where possible & top quality European burr walnut veneers. It has all the features of the Victorian models, with the shark teeth supports for the adjustable shelves, carved corbels, a plinth base & a bold detachable cornice. It has all been French Polished & has lots of character. The main difference between this one & all the previous ones we have made, is the inside. The inside back & sides have been veneered in figured walnut & polished. This is a far more expensive way of doing them, because we usually have the insides just stained like the Victorian ones were. I thought this would look much smarter & could be used for other things besides books. Also, it's large than the previous ones.
Width – 41″, 104 cm
Depth – 14″, 36 cm
Depth in Middle – 11.5″, 29 cm
Height – 78″, 198 cm
THIS IS SOLD NOW, BUT WE CAN MAKE ANOTHER ONE TO ORDER ANY SIZE./ Share
Unique Antique Victorian Deep Buttoned Leather Chaise Lounge
Fabulous original antique Victorian Chaise Longue upholstered in deep buttoned leather which has been hand coloured. The leather has a wonderful colour & loads of character. It has been traditionally re-upholstered, which cost a small fortune to do, but I think it was worth the effort, because it looks great & is very comfortable. It has turned legs, brass casters & it is hand tacked all over, with a sprung edge. This chaise is mid-Victorian, around the 1860-80’s period & it’s in excellent condition. I don’t think you will find another one of these on the market. Please enlarge all of the images.
Width – 71″, 180 cm

Height – 28.5″, 72 cm
Seat height – 15″, 38 cm

Pair of Antique Victorian Burr Walnut Bedside Chests
Stunning pair of antique Victorian burr walnut bedside chests in good condition. There is a beautiful pattern of burr walnut figuring on the tops, drawer fronts, curved corners & even on the base plinths. One of the drawers is a double & all the drawers look like they have the original handles. This pair of chests have a lovely original mellow colour & are full of character, with natural distressing in the wood. Unlike most of these pairs in the market, they look completely original & not made up from something else. Although when we picked them up, they were half painted & were much deeper. We just had them polished & cut back a bit in depth, because they looked too cumbersome. These are unique & can’t be repeated. Please enlarge all the images to appreciate these chests. Also, there is a makers name stamped into the top of one of the drawers (see image).

Pair of Antique Chippendale Style Leather Wing Armchairs (Customizable Upon Request)£2,250.00 + VAT
Very comfortable pair of antique Chippendale style leather wing armchairs. They have been completely re-upholstered with coil springs, feather cushions, while the leather has been hand coloured & antiqued. These armchairs have generous proportions & sit on mahogany legs with cross stretchers, which give them more stability. Please don’t confuse these with the mass produced pre-dyed models out there. These are full of character, will last a lifetime & the finish on the leather will improve with age. I have just bought a load of these wing chairs from a large hotel chain who were refurbishing, so I have many more pairs in store, ready to polish & re-upholster. There is one more pair on my web site that are a different colour & not deep buttoned. However, I have many more waiting to be covered in any colour or format needed. If you want them with basic hand colouring without the leather being antiqued, they can be bought for about £400 less. Personally, I think it’s worth going the extra mile with these, because they look antique, with loads of character & the colour will improve with age. All the models are hand tacked & have coil springs inside, so they will last a lifetime. It’s important that you enlarge all the images to appreciate the detail & colouring. This pair are a kind of chestnut colour. The other pair on the web site are more of a cognac colour.
