An Old Dining Room Pedestal Table and a Victorian Era Bed

Posted by admin on June 18, 2012 at 7:27 pm

We found a nice old Empire styled antique pedestal table recently and paired it with some antique pressback chairs.

I painted the table and chairs in ASCP White and finished by distressing and waxing all.  The table is in excellent condition and dates to the late 1800s.  It is 42″ in diameter and the old chairs also come from the same period up through the early 1900s.  The chair and tables are priced at $375.

This is a Victorian era bed dating back to the mid to late 1800s.  It is a 3/4 size, common to the time which fell between a full and queen.  I’ve modified the bed to take a full-size boxspring and mattress.

The workmanship is one of a kind and the bed was likely commissioned by a well-heeled family from a very talented furniture maker.  The handcarving on the footboard is exceptional and not an applique.  The siderails are fashioned to match the bottom trim on the headboard and footboard.  Beautiful turned legs on both and the headboard has a full dental trim and fluted main sides.  The headboard stands close to 5′ tall; the footboard almost 3′ high.  Priced at $325.

We’ve placed the last 5 drawer bobbin leg console table in the shoppe.  Dimensions are 6′ long x 16″ deep x 32″ high.  Priced at $395.

An antique wheelbarrow probably from a local Chester County or Lancaster County farm.  This one is in excellent condition with a forged metal wheel and axle.  Sits in front of the shoppe.

A 1930s toll chandelier.  Most of these originally wer fashioned and imported from Italy.  I’ve rewired this one and its ready for the home.  Priced at $110.

Some of the summertime signs and accessories in the shoppe’s back room.

The old red chair sold today, but the 3 tier plant stand, from the Depression era, is still with us.

A nice set of French linen wine deckels.

Well, that’s all this week.  We’re closed for Tuesday and Wednesday, reopening on Thursday at 10am.  We have a nice set of vintage theater chairs in ASCP Louis Blue ready for the store, and I’m working on several vintage occasional tables that will be ready, too.

OK, night all from me and…………….   good nighty from Grady.
