SOLD

Offering a unique vintage 1940’s-50’s drafting table. The fantastic cast iron hardware and knobs are an excellent example of original industrial design.

Whether it be a compact city loft or a cottage, this table will provide limitless options.

The wax finish is excellent for future care with a quick buff every so often. The table top has plenty of scratches and wear, which give testament to its age and prior use. The underside of the table top is unfinished.

Offering an early 20th century (1900-1910) antique oil painting of two gentlemen and a young butler. Unsigned, but this was generally the case with many portraits from this era. The original frame, which is no longer present, would have displayed a brass plate with the family name and the artists details. This portrait was painted by a highly skilled painter, with an excellent grasp of using loose brush strokes for a formal painting. A very desirable style, showing great skill. The artist was very gifted and likely schooled in Europe. This painting was obtained in the New York area.

The condition of the painting is excellent, with no areas of significant damage. A very fine example with some creases showing the stretcher from behind. It has a beautiful clean finish and a glossy older varnish present, which has protected the paint. The frame is suited well to the painting, but not the original frame.

Size: 19.5″x30.5″

Offering a 19th century Asian hand carved rosewood and burled exotic wood chair. The construction certainly points to the mid 19th century, as the chair was constructed with wooden pegs, noticeable on the joining of the arms and back. There are nails, which were likely added when the chair was fitted with a replacement caned seat. The nails appear to be of early 20th century vintage. Given it’s age, there are a couple splits in the wood, which do not impact it’s function. A lovely chair with plenty of antique charm. Strong and complete!The Ivory and exotic wood inlays are finely detailed and show a figure climbing a tree limb. There appears to be an older repair to the head of the figure, which isn’t Ivory, but is very presentable and blends in rather well. One small area of a tree branch detail also appears to have an older repair present.The overall shape and fine hand-carved details are unique and very beautiful. It would certainly give a warm handmade antique presence to any decor. A rare 19th century piece of Chinese furniture. It has a bespoke feel. It’s a comfortable chair to sit in, but is most definitely a decorative piece and mean’t to be admired.

CSL Pastel of Woman
YOUNG WOMAN IN BLUE, c.1880-1895
English Portrait Painter
Pastel on Paper
Monogrammed “CSL”
Framed 17.5″x 20.5″
SOLD

Offering a pastel on paper drawing of a lovely young woman in blue.  She appears to be in her 20’s.  The pastel drawing is rather loose and more of a sketch.  Likely a quick portrait in pastel for a possible oil painting.  The colours are vibrant, with incredible detailing in the face.  Her eyes are amazing and tell a story.  Her face is beautiful, but  naturally less than symmetrical.  She’s certainly a beautiful young woman.  The pastel drawing is well preserved and framed behind glass.
I removed the pastel from it’s frame to have a closer look and clean the interior glass.  The monogram is very close to the edge of the paper, which appears to have been trimmed during it’s history.  It’s glued in a few spots to a board and I was able to shine a light through most of the drawing.  There are no watermarks, a few small rips and creases present.  There are three oil spots, starting on her chest, a bit below is a very small one and a larger one on her blue dress.  The monogram, “CSL” had been written quickly, as opposed to the attention paid with the monogram in his oil paintings.
International shipping available.  The glass will be removed for overseas shipment, leaving the drawing and frame.  It’s too risky to ship glass internationally.
