Item specifics

Original/Reproduction: Original Era: 1930s
Originating Region: Europe

Fabulous english oak buffet / sideboard with lime-washed finish and original (?) lions head handles. Likely dates somewhere around 1930s-40s.

Beautiful lines and shape. Outstanding grain detail which is accentuated with the limed finish.

Plenty of storage with cupboards and drawers.

Solid oak framework with some oak ply inserts (possibly thin sections rather than ply as look exactly same as the solid sections with lovely grain detail so not 100% sure). Back is ply with solid supporting batons.

Overall condition is very good. The inset panels have some hairline cracks and the back has two neat circular holes for cables. The top comprises two solid oak boards which have separated a little over time but very secure and stable and looks great. Has overall age related, gentle signs of aging and nothing siginificant or that detracts.

A striking, handsome piece which is very Hamptons in style and would look great in a range of interiors schemes.

Auction is for sideboard only, other items shown for presentation. :)

Approx: 168cm L x 97cm H x 59cm D

Questions and inspections prior to bidding are very very welcome :)

Terms of Sale:

I am a fair and flexible seller but I do ask that the winner makes contact within 3 days of the auction ending. If I do not hear within this time-frame, I will re-list the item and report it as non-paid.

Payment and collection to be made with 7 days.

Pick up is from Samford, approx 20ks north of Brisbane CBD. I might be able to deliver, please contact me prior to bidding for details.

About the Seller:

I am absolutely passionate about beautiful, old and interesting interiors pieces and over a number of years have built experience sourcing, collecting and more often than not, sympathetically restoring the pieces I find, using a variety of paint and wax finishes, ready for their new home.

Please bear in mind when considering bidding on any of my items that what I do is something of a labour of love and a surprising amount of time is spent sourcing items, and restoring them. Many people don't realise that even cosmetic restoration work is often time-intensive, messy and costly (not to mention far from glamourous!). As tough as it can be, it is also immensley enjoyable and rewarding and the new owner has a piece which is a hand-finished, unique and almost always at a fraction of it's retail price. Please enjoy ;).
