Antique Victorian Burr Walnut Pop Up Davenport Desk

Antique Victorian Burr Walnut Pop Up Davenport Desk c.1860

This is a gorgeous antique piano front Davenport Desk, Circa 1860 in date. It is crafted from fabulous burr walnut and the hinged pull out writing slope features the original inset gilt tooled navy leather writing surface, ink bottles and pen tray.   It has been wonderfully  made by a master craftsman, the quality of the work is breathtaking, and the burr walnut is of the highest quality. It is finished on all sides so that it can stand freely in the middle of a room, making it extremely versatile.   The Davenport has four drawers on one side, perfectly sized for all the stationary you could possibly need, and dummy drawers on the other, making it not just a symbol of refinement but a practical furnishing as well.   The main talking point when showing it to friends is the  secret compartment at the rear on top  for letters, stamps, etc,. It rises up by itself when a hidden catch is pressed by an ingenious system of pulleys and a hidden weight.   It stands on its original bun feet fitted with recessed brass and porcelain castors.   It is an absolutely beautiful and perfectly formed piece of furniture which could be placed almost anywhere.   Complete with working locks and key. Condition:   In excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed, in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.

Antique Pair Ivorine Wall Plaques Old Testament Scenes Ebonised Frames 19th C

Antique Pair Ivorine Wall Plaques Old Testament Scenes Ebonised Frames 19th C

This is a lovely pair of antique English Victorian ivorine wall plaques, by the Italian-born sculptor  Giovanni Franchi (1811-1874), and made in London in 1855. These beautiful plaques were made after the original work of the French sculptor Alexandre-Pierre Schoenewerk (1820-1885) and feature two splendid Old Testament scenes. One plaque, featuring 'Rachel and Jacob at the well', depicts the scene of the encounter between the two characters when Jacob, according to the Bible, fell in love with Rachel while seeing her at a well near Haran, an outpost of the ancient city of Ur. The characters are depicted in great detail in the centre of the plaque, surrounded by wonderfully cast trees, camels, people and houses in the background. The sculptor clearly leaves no part of the plaque empty or without interest.  The other plaque depicts two different characters of the Old testament in the forefront - a young lady dressed in the attire of the period, in a seated position and gathering the crops from the field. The man, also dressed in the typical clothes of the period is standing tall near the woman and speaking to her. Once again, the plaque is extremely detailed, with every possible particular being captured by the sculptor - the background being filled with people working the fields, trees, sheds, working instruments, and cattle. In both plaques, the palm trees seem to beautifully frame the scene as almost to welcome the viewer to the story.  Both plaques are set in their fabulous original antique ebonised frames and are signed and dated verso, 'G. Franchi, London 1855'. One plaque is also signed in the front 'Schoenewerk'.      It is a splendid and indeed interesting pair which will surely enhance any interior. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

Antique French Pair Two Tone Gilt Bronze Lidded Urns with Cherub Finials 19th C

Antique French Pair Two-Tone Gilt Bronze Lidded Urns with Cherub Finials 19th C

This is a stunning pair of antique French twin handle two-tone gilt bronze garniture lidded urns, circa 1870 in date. These splendid urns have exquisite cast side handles with beautiful grapes and vine decoration. The ormolu lids feature superb reclining cherubs.   They are superbly cast with continuous scenes of delightful dancing cherubs  and a distinctive goat, above writhen fluted lower bodies and leaf cast circular bases. Goats in art have been associated with the worship of Bacchus (the God of Wine), which explains the appropriateness of the presence of goats in these Neo-Classical style urns' scenes, which indeed bears a distinctive bacchanalian theme.    This high-quality hot cast solid bronze pair of urns were produced using the traditional "lost wax" process, otherwise known as the "cire perdue" method.   Each urn comes is raised on a resplendent giltwood and blue velvet stand.   This pair of lidded urns represents timeless elegance and will no doubt receive the maximum amount of attention wherever placed. Condition: In good condition. As antique items, the pieces show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the urns display beautifully.
