Late 19th century extendable table book rest, made from oak. The folding ends are beautifully carved with Gothic arches. Its original surface, fine condition, and a golden colour makes this book rest rather special. Circa 1880
A superb pair of 19th century low hoop back Windsor armchairs with unusually higher seats. Made of yew wood, with elm seats, the hoop backs frame a gothic tracery design. An inscribed line lends simple decoration to the hoop and also the seat. Below are fine turned legs united by a crinoline stretcher. They are in exemplary original condition, cared for, with the warm glow of yew wood. Built for longer legs than the average 19th century person, these chairs are perfect seating for the modern man. Circa 1820.
