A late 18th century English oak sofa, with fresh sand coloured linen upholstery. The construction is mostly hand-carved oak, with a delightful curved pine back and pine bottom boards. There are early hand forged Rosehead nails throughout. The sofa also has nails from the 19th and 20th century, as it had been reinforced and repaired over the years. It’s very sturdy and firm. The finish appears to be original and has been refreshed with a coat of fine museum quality wax. Definitely a fine updated example of a late 1700s sofa.
The edging and fabric give it a slightly later Regency era look with a Jane Austen feel. It’s rather small for a sofa, by modern standards. It would make a brilliant bench for the foot of a king size bed or as a foyer sofa. It’s best suited to moderate use, but definitely a sturdy old English oak piece, with a rich history.
Please feel free to ask any further questions! It’s an adorable piece, which could suit many locations in a dwelling.

A primitive folk styled antique oil painting of a gentleman. It was found in upper New England and is either American or early Canadian. The surface is typical of a painting from the early 1800s. It has one small paint chip on the forehead and a few spot at the bottom corner. The painting has a cracked surface, but the paint appears well secured. It’s a bit dark and has a very old varnish on the surface. The painting was carefully cleaned recently.

Offering a set of four handmade Hitchcock chairs. Circa 1820-1840. They have a nice patina, with an old shellac finish present. The chairs recently received a coat of very fine museum quality English wax. All the joints are very stable and the chairs feel very solid. There are nice details of a skilled craftsman, with carving marks and nicely turned legs.
Most Hitchcock chairs are painted black, but these happened to be finished Yellow Pine & hardwood. Under one of the chairs, there is very faint painted lettering, showing to whom the chairs were made. I haven’t been able to make out the entire name. The chairs came from a farmhouse in Western Massachusetts and were likely made locally, with some parts potentially from the Hitchcock Co. In 1818, the Hitchcock company started in the business of selling chair parts.
Please be in contact for shipping and handling charges. They could ship UPS, with two chairs to a box. Freight is another option. International shipping can be arranged.
