RARE VICTORIAN PINE BLANKET CHEST /ANTIQUE TRUNK /BEDDING BOX /COFFEE TABLE.

Item: 19th Century Painted Pine Blanket Chest.

Description: Gorgeous and extremely decorative antique pine bedding chest. In rare condition, retaining it's polychrome paint and dated 1870. The two-panel top is hinged to the rear and reveals a good sized interior complete with candle box. The sides retain original iron handles and the chest sits on a nicely moulded plinth. Very hard to find this type of chest. They make perfect coffee tables or, as originally intended, placed at the foot of a bed. Truly superb patina that was hard to capture in my photo's. All solid pine throughout and a good, heavy weight, quality example. One for the connoisseur. Absolute bargain start price!

Measurements: Width 1250mm (49 1/4"). Depth 620mm (24 1/2"). Height 515mm (20 1/4").

Condition Report: In good, solid condition throughout. Old paint faded, worn and mellowed with age.

RARE ANTIQUE ROSEWOOD CARVED BOOK FORM FILE BOX, VICTORIAN LIBRARY /OFFICE.

Item: Superb Victorian Book-Form Carved Stationary Box.

Description: An extremely unusual and particularly fine example in solid rosewood and dating to c1890. The box is crafted to resemble a large book. The 'spine' with gentle curve is hinged, opening a full 180 degrees to reveal the interior. The front edge is reed carved to look like the 'pages'. Lovely grain, colour and patina, and super quality throughout. Would take A4, making this ideal for files, stationary, envelopes and letter writing items. Never seen one like it.

LARGE CHINESE ANTIQUE ZITAN WOOD CARVED STAND - VASE /CENSER, 17TH CENTURY, MING

Item: Large Chinese Zitan Wood Stand.

Description: Very large and heavy (1.3kg!) Chinese stand for a vase or perhaps a censer. Date-wise this is late Ming or Early Qing, somewhere between c1630 and 1730. The zitan (紫檀) is of the red sandalwood variety (Pterocarpus santalinus) which was extremely popular in China, particularly from the 18th century onward, and was highly prized. The stand is carved from a single piece, containing some burl which gives it an unusual grain. The patina is a very deep reddish-brown. A rare example.

Measurements: Diameter 255mm (10"). Accommodating a vase with 193mm base max.

Condition Report: Good condition. There is a small loss to edge rim, and the small pad feet probably added in the 19thC to level the stand which has a slight undulation.

LARGE ANTIQUE GOTHIC CHURCH HYMN BOARD, OAK CARVED, MANNER OF PUGIN.

Item: Huge Carved Oak Gothic Hymn Board.

Description: Beautiful quality and extremely large carved Gothic oak hymn board removed from a church. Easily the best I've seen in years. These make stunning menu or notice boards in a kitchen, cafe, restaurant or pub. There is a Gothic arch with carved finial above. Also five spaces for hymns which slit in via the right side. The English oak has a lovely grain and colour. There is an additional surface-mounted brass plaque on the base which could easily be removed. Fabulous statement piece. We will be listing some rare and interesting church antiques over the next few weeks, all fresh to the market, to include a fine pair of Arts & Crafts pedestals, a large candlestick, Glastonbury chairs, pews and more. Please remember to check our listings.

Measurements: Width 685mm (27"). Depth 105mm (4 1/4"). Height mm (75 1/2").

Condition Report: In very good, solid condition throughout and ready for use. The side galleries on the top do appear to be missing a small piece each, though not easy to spot.

PAIR LARGE VICTORIAN CHURCH PEDESTALS /STANDS, GOTHIC /AESTHETIC, ANTIQUE C1880

Item: Large 19th Century Church Pedestals.

Description: Gorgeous and extremely decorative pair of Victorian Gothic pedestals removed from a local church. Heavy quality pitch pine throughout. These stands would be perfect for a large country house, barn conversion, hotel etc. The solid square tops with concave frieze with neat 'ball' detailing on legs carved with a simple cross with matching ball, ebonised and joined by a square base. Would look spectacular with large ferns or marble or bronze busts perhaps. A rare pair for the interior designer. Low start price - I'd expect to see a price tag on these of upwards of £1500 in a smart London shop.

Measurements: Height 1110mm. Width 555mm (square).

Condition Report: In good, solid and original condition throughout. Only minor faults are a couple of balls missing from cross centres and slight opening og plank tops. Nothing which detracts. We have given these a coat of clear beeswax and a buffing ready for their new home.
