The Suffolk dealer has acquired a stunning collection of pieces of early furniture and works of art, many from long-standing private collections.

Pieces include a James I joint stool, a Charles I child’s table, two burr oak wine tables and two good moulded front chests of drawers with original bun feet.

Pieces in other timber include an early Georgian Irish walnut stool, a stunning William and Mary olivewood oyster veneered chest of drawers, another in burr walnut, a small elm winged settle, a yew wood tripod table and two impressive 18th-century upholstered wing chairs.

Comb back chairs are well represented including a very rare set of six green painted armchairs, a generously-proportioned Thames Valley armchair, attributed to John Pitt, with four cabriole legs and a charming Welsh primitive chair with a superb two inch thick burr elm seat.

Angel 018 AdjCarvings include a late Gothic kneeling angel, a stunning Regency giltwood standing heron and a rare panel showing the miracle of Christ turning water into wine.

Other works of art include a large 17th-century needlework picture, a 17th-century brass chandelier, a Brislington delft Adam and Eve charger and an impressive Sicilian bombola shaped jar decorated with the head of a boy.

The two-week selling exhibition runs from May 30 to June 13 at Andrew’s Yoxford premises and online at www.suffolk-house-antiques.co.uk.
