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.

A lovely original Aquatint Engraving of Oxford, from 1802. It’s a very large engraving with fine details and excellent colouring. There is a very slight bit of foxing at the top of the engraving. The overall condition is good and is clean of any serious damage. It’s an impressive print, in size and overall condition.
The frame is black and likely from the later part of the 19th century. The glass is wavy, which is very desirable, as it shows the print was framed a very longtime ago.
It’s remarkable, how little the architecture has changed in busy Oxford, since the Industrial Revolution! Besides street lights, cars and bicycles, the picture hasn’t changed much.
Published by Wm. De La Motte, Oxford, April 14th 1802.

Paul Louis Salvan (1877-1962), French
Oil on Canvas, Size 27cm x 35cm
Offering an early Paul Louis Salvan painting. He’s a listed French painter and well sought by collectors. Definitely late 19th century and an early work for the artist. Impressionistic in painting style and of rural France, which was a favourite of many artists from the period. The colours are brilliant and the style is fairly loose, with a fine grasp of scale and composition.
The painting is in fantastic condition, with no cracks or surface wear. The colours are bright and the painting is clean. The framing is likely original. The rear of the stretcher has the dimensions, 35cm x27cm and an anchor emblem stamped into the top stretcher. The frame does show typical wear to the gilt and black paint.
Overall a fine little painting from a known French artist. A very nice piece!

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.

Sailboat in Boston, 1891
By R. Bates
Titled “Victory For The Title”
Offered at $475.- SOLD
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.
