I have recently managed to source some beautifully patinated pieces of country furniture and I am delighted to share them with you.

The Georgian coffer on stand or mule chest is a piece that I would love to take home. It has the very best colour for a piece of oak furniture and its little cabriole legs are very unusual. Importantly all the brass handles and escutcheons are original.

The cricket table is a particularly refined example with its elegantly swept legs and again the walnut has acquired a beautifully faded colour. It is the perfect size to go between a pair of chairs and its clean lines mean it would be equally at home in a modern or traditional interior.

Finally the Dutch bucket is a very good example and would make the perfect waste paper basket.

If you are interested in collecting oak and country furniture you may find this recent blog entry interesting and the website also features a buyer's guide to dressers.

I have recently updated the website with several new pieces and it can be viewed by clicking here.

Regency walnut and elm cricket table.

Regency walnut and elm cricket table.

Height: 24" (61cm)

Diameter: 22" (56cm)

A Regency period walnut and elm cricket table; the round walnut top above an elm shelf and raised on elegantly swept walnut legs. Retaining a beautifully warm colour and patination.

This cricket table is a beautiful example of country furniture and is a little bit more sophisticated than most examples. The table has the very best colour and typically of vernacular furniture it utilises the woods that were to hand at the time. Its elegant design allows it to be used as a feature in a modern interior and its size is perfect for between a pair of chairs.
