Just arrived!

The last of our short run of Truck Coffee Tables has now hit the shop floor.....

An elegant and charming pair of nineteenth century oriental fruitwood side tables in a Ming Dynasty style. Very nice colour, construction and wear and patination. Also with a 'secret' drawer.

The Art Depot. A very fine and exquisite hand-painted sign from Chatham High Street.

Mid-century glazed artist's cabinet removed from an East London art studio. The four hardwood doors open to reveal the shelves positioned discreetly behind the glazing bars.

We also have a smaller version....

A small run of 8 machine room opaline lamp shades. These were rescued from the skip by one of the London Underground engineers who passed them on to us. A great skip find! They were apparantly located in a remote and more-or-less inaccessible machine room- probably the reason that they have lasted so long. The glass is a good thick quality and the lamps retain their original galleries and metal tube stems. Some of the galleries are screw fixed to hold the shades and some have an unusual sprung clip device that we have not seen before. Manufactured we believe in Birmingham, UK around 1930.

Another run of Enameled Pendant Lamps is now available. Newly rewired and refitted the lamps have cast-iron galleries and glass lenses.

A very nice bentwood coatstand in the manner of Michael Thonet with a revolving top! It retains the original wear to both the stand and the hooks which add to it's charm.
And finally the salvaged shop sign letters keep on coming...with more still to follow. Above we have the legend 'e1' in brushed stainless steel letters which has been our postcode for the last 20 years!
And below an impressive 'm' in a faded blue paint. Or how about 'F' or 'P' or 'L'?
All of our salvaged signage letters have been refitted at the back so that they can be hung on the wall if desired.
