new arrivals

Probably the tallest set of vintage step-ladders we have seen. True to the Slingsby name even after all this time and adventure they are still very sturdy and usable. If you have the space just put them up and marvel at their sheer scale!



A pair of beautifully patinated mill trolleys with years of good and hinest wear proudly displayed. Again manufactured and built to last in Bradford. It is increasingly rare to find these British trolleys and even more so in as a pair.
 




A good run of vintage wooden pigeon holes from a school. A fantastic storage solution - shoes, books, crockery, or for the workshop or studio.
 
We couldn't resist this little bright and colourful pair. Brought on the Thursday Antique and Flea Market at Spitalfields - where our shop is located. Thursday is always a good day to pay us a visit and maybe have a rummage on the market too.

undercover spitalfields market stories

Old Spitalfields Market celebrates its 120th birthday this year. Although a market has existed in the area since 1638, the modern market or Horner Buildings, constructed around the northern, eastern and southern sides of the site, was finished in 1893. The following photographs were taken by Peter Marlow. They appear in Undercover Spitalfields: Market Stories, written by architectural critic Jonathan Glancey to coincide with the anniversary. The book will be on sale in May, published by Magnum Editions.

Strafor Retro Posters


We thought that we should share these atmospheric images from the heyday of metal office furniture. Forges de Strasbourg were undoubtedly one of the leading manufacturers of this furniture. The longevity of these pieces speaks in itself for their quality. And if you have ever tried to move one the weight of the metal plate is also testament to the quality.

We currently have for sale a Strafor clapet. From the bound and dated account books that we would found inside we date it to just after the turn of the last century at about 1910. A truly exceptional piece of a very practical size. The carbonised steel burnishes to a deep silvery black lustre which is particularly well set off by the original brass fittings. Beware of imitations!
