Wainscot Chair 

Scottish, late 17th c.

Interesting chair: the back is two boards nailed to the frame and then carved and "framed" to simulate a panel. The carving is plentiful, "busy" and of high quality, with a particularly good crest. Take your time looking at the pictures and enjoy this unusual chair. And then look at the price!

Candleholder 

Spanish, c.1675

A really good example of the form. An elegant stem set on a large, suppressed dome with boldly reeded base. Cast in two pieces. Look at the images, notice how faultless it is and then imagine greenery around it at Christmas!

Small Medieval Jug. 

English, 16th c.

Attractive form: we like the way the straight-necked spout contrasts with the baluster body. Strap handle and good foot rim. Ex Cowan Collection, acquired in England in 1978. Sold by us seven years ago to a collection in Maine, now fresh to the market again.

Brass Plate 

Dutch or English, c. 1725

We see plenty of plates made of pewter, silver or ceramics, but brass? Not so much. This one is of heavy cast and spun brass, decorated with 4 rings of fine double-reeding. It has a sturdy foot, and shows no signs of having been used for eating. Did it hold wafers at communion? Sweetmeats for dessert? Supper for the cat? Your guess is as good as ours. Whatever its use, it's rare, attractive and worthy of a place in your collection.

Candleholder 

Irish or English, 1700-1725

High quality blacksmithing; fine, thin ironwork on base with typical twist decoration. Socket with ejection slot fitted into stem. Old, pitted surface. The conical holder suggests an early date, the circular iron base is typical of Ireland, but the fine quality of the work suggests England. Not many of these around. This one came from what has been called "the best lighting collection in England."
