Antique Hepplewhite Farmhouse Table, Circa 1800-1820

IMG_4461

Offering a gorgeous antique New England Hepplewhite drop-leaf farmhouse table with wood peg joinery. Circa 1800-1820. The farmhouse table originated from the Deerfield area or surrounding valley in Western Massachusetts. It’s very solidly made, with nice period handcrafted details in the construction. The Hepplewhite farmhouse table is made of pine. Both leaves are held by a pivoted cutout on two sides, so one leaf can be dropped and one left up. Four adults can be seated at this table and it’s exceptionally sturdy for everyday use, given its age. The history is present in a wonderful worn patina to the surfaces and joinery. There are plenty of scratches and a very old dark spot left behind from a candle holder. It has a lovely simple rustic feel.

The simplicity of an antique country Hepplewhite table lends itself well to both traditional settings and more contemporary spaces alike. Perfect for a period home, or modern city loft with limited dining space. The drop leaf compact style makes it perfect for a sideboard table too. Click here for more details.

A Beautiful Antique English Oak Sofa Covered in Linen and Regency Styled Edging, c.1790’s

Image

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.

18th Century Bavarian Pine Armoire

18th Century Bavarian Armoire/Cabinet
Hand constructed in pine
Understated floral motif on door and drawer
5’tall x 37 1/2″wide x 20″deep
The piece was bought in Munich during the 1970s and shipped to the States.  There is a painted detail at the top, showing a marriage date of 1876 and the first letters of the given names of the couple.  The piece is much older than the wedding gift date.  There is a lock plate of the door, in the form of a bird, which dates the armoire/cabinet to the late 18th century.  There is no longer a key available and the door can be kept closed, with a later edition hand carved latch.
Inside, there is shelving and two small hidden drawers at the very top.  The bottom drawer slides freely and deep.
The piece is very solid given it’s age. Much of the peg construction is intact and still holding the piece together.  There were some nails added in the 19th or early 20th century in various discrete places, to add additional support.
There are a few repairs, which are blended in rather nicely around the hinges to the door and at the bottom of the drawer.  Two supports, which act as feet, had been added to the bottom and are hidden by the exterior panels.  They appear to be in a metric size and were probably added before it was imported in the 1970s.
Overall, it’s a very charming rustic piece, with very nice original touches.  The painted areas and character are very understated, which make it a perfect addition to any decor.  I could see it in a country home or equally fitting to a city loft.
