Queen Anne Mirror 

American or English, c.1750

English, 19th c.

Interesting staved bucket with one wooden and one iron band. Use it by your desk for paper, by your hearth for kindling, or anywhere for anything! Just a nice, hand-made thing to have. Lisa has done lovely arrangements of twigs and dreid grasses in it.

Table Box 

English, c. 1665

Very rare to find a box lined with period woodcuts. They depict the marriage of Charles II and Catherine of Braganza, Jun 1661. They are wallpaper, after the woodcut in the V&A (shown here.) The box itself is very good, carved on front and sides with lively variations on back-to,back S-scrolls. Original small snipe hinges, old, dark surface. Inside or out, there's something special here. Ex collection of Henry P Strause.

Mural Pipe Box 

Welsh, c.1700

Unusually well carved pipe box with rich, old color and surface. The roundels are typical of north Wales, and so is the heart cut-out in a charmingly asymmetrically arched back! Attractive taper from top to bottom -- what's not to like about it?

Miniature Chest of Drawers 

England, 1680-1700

Decorative, useful -- and absolutely pure! Original finish (how often can you say that?) of lacquer over stain. Original pulls. Geometric applied moldings -- the pattern on the upper drawer is the reverse on that on the lower, with a plainer one in the middle -- very carefully conceived. A truly excellent thing! Bought from Suffolk House Antiques in 2007 and in a private collection till now.
