This attractive, beautifully hand-crafted antique shipwright's domed tool chest was made by master craftsmen using pine timber, and it's full of character and has a unique charm.
Circ19 carpenter's trunk
Aged patina finish
Perfect for display chest for storage of collectables
Dimensions in centimetres are, Height:50 Width: 100 Depth:50
This apprentice piece has a beautiful patina with a timeworn crackle to the varnish. There are three wooden inserts that can be removed to gain access to banks of storage. The original brass plate with J.Powell engraved. In 1834 James Powell (1774–1840), then a 60-year-old London wine merchant and entrepreneur of the same family as the founder of the Scout movement, Robert-Baden, purchased the Whitefriars Glass Company, small glasswork off Fleet Street in London, believed to have been established in 1680. Powell, and his sons Arthur and Nathanael, were newcomers to glass making but soon acquired the necessary expertise. They experimented and developed new techniques, devoting a large part of their production to the creation of church-stained glass windows. This incredible tool trunk was used on naval ships by a gentleman who was a maritime engineer.
A great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior
Perfect for display chest for storage of collectables, crafts, or haberdashery

"They are beautiful. I don’t like to match furniture and love mish mash, quirky and odd looking things lol. I absolutely love them. My house is 203 years old and is grade II listed. I think it makes an old cottage come alive and puts a modern twist on it. I love furniture that tells a story or gets people talking at a house party".

Beautiful Bedside Tables

The bedside tables are stunning! The seller was so nice and communicated extremely well, even though she was on holiday at the time I purchased! I said she didn't have to worry until she returned to the UK, but she still started to communicate with couriers to arrange pick-up of the items before her return, which I thought was lovely of her.

I'm extremely impressed with how quickly the seller arranged delivery and accommodated for dates I would be at home for the deilvery. The furniture is also stunning and arrived with no damages and well packaged. Extremely happy with the furniture bought and the seller. A small paintbrush and touch up paint was also included, which I thought was a nice touch.

Thank you so much! I love them.

Kraken Drawers

My new table arrived from PinkDotUpcycling at Upcite and omg I'm in love! I so miss being able to do this kind of thing myself, but cannot fault the work done to bring this table back to life and just look how stunning my kraken's bride is!! . Off to follow the FB groups now to see what other unique pretties I can find! Technically a lamp table, but us three being shorties means it will work just fine for crafting, science experiments etc. . . Only opened up to protect the artwork and a table cloth!.
