1934/19: A most unusual, interesting and rare George III WRITING COMPENDIUM in fine original condition. The lower drawer with its brass :Swan-neck" handle, pulls out to open the "tambour" top which reveals the full set of original writing fittings including: pair of ink bottles; sander; two engraved glass seals and pair of candle-holders etc. The top opens to show the baize-lined writing surface, whilst there are two small drawers to the fitted interior and twin brass "Swan-Neck" carrying handles to both sides. An intriguing and useful Writing Compendium (or small desk) of a model we have not seen before. 20ins wide; 12ins deep; 9ins high max. (51 x 30.5 x 23cms) c.1770

1867/18: A particularly fine and thoroughly original 18th century Chippendale period mahogany HANGING CORNER CABINET in excellent original condition. Below the pierced "Swan-Neck" pediment with its carved and gilded rosettes, is the well-figured and banded door, which opens to reveal three shaped shelves (making four in all). This door is flanked by reeded sides, and the painting of the interior, whilst not original, is certainly very old and in beautiful order. Dimensions to the corner: 22.5ins (57cms) c.1775
