This week’s buys have a distinct vintage industrial and haberdashery feel.
We’ll start with a couple of office accessories – a Smiths wall clock and perpetual calendar, both with a grey metallic finish. Very cool and masculine!
Slightly more feminine are these vintage wicker mannequins – useful for crafters of course, but very sculptural as interior decor pieces also.
We always pick up these shoe lasts when we come across them. They come in a variety of styles & shapes which adds interest to a collection – the wood often has a wonderful colour & patina too.
Painted furniture is much in evidence this week. The aged duck egg blue of the step ladders is a lovely shade – perhaps a candidate for one of our Home Tones posts!
This workbench light is a classic piece of vintage industrial style – the design, wear and colour all make it very desirable for fans of the look.
It was produced in the 1930s era and the Memlite brand is well-regarded by collectors.
This Victorian pine chest of drawers is a lovely size and simple style. It’s been over painted, but has aged quite nicely – and the cream colour isn’t bad. We could leave it untouched, strip the paint or distress slightly. Choices, choices!
No decision required for this vintage travel trunk. It’s going to look gorgeous with a simple bit of wax and leather cream.
Wonderfully aged leather, nice metal locks and stud detailing – the interior is so clean & tidy too. It’s a real beauty!
