New this week we have a beautiful 45″ Brass Fireplace Fender. It has a lovely pierced design with fans and Acanthus leaves. The fender was most likely produced in the United States in the 1800’s. It would look great in a restored Victorian home. It is currently available at our store in Williamston.
It is all done and in the shop. A lovely antique 3 drawer golden oak dresser. This piece was produced between 1890 & 1920. It is solid oak with a full set of cast brasses. During the restoration I decided that I liked the lived in look of the top and chose to just bring it back to a usable condition rather than strip away all of the character. I did however have to create a new backsplash as it was missing. Originally the piece probably had a wishbone towel bar. The dresser measures 35 1/2″ wide by 17″ deep by 32′ high to the top and 34 1/2″ to the top of the backsplash. The dimensions of this dresser make it a good choice for someone looking to transform it into a vanity base for a vessel sink.
This week we have a fun new find from our recent buying trip. The “Pick of the Week” are a great pair of Solid Brass Antique Car Horns. These are from the early days of automobiles, back when horns weren’t a standard feature. Sometimes these kind of horns were used on carriages. Both horns have their reeds and original mounting brackets. As you can see both are missing their bulbs. Those are easily replaceable and available online.
