Recently acquired from a local source, this beautiful vintage butchers block features a solid beech top, and stands on a pine base. Unusually it stands a little over 34 inches high so is an absolutely ideal height to serve as an island unit if desired. A very substantial piece it would be a fabulous addition, or indeed a central feature, for any country kitchen interior or farmhouse. This butchers block is in good condition, and the previous owners were sorry to see it go as it is such a lovely piece. A full 6 foot long by 2 foot deep and just over 34 inches high.
72 inches long, 24 inches deep and 34 1/2 inches high.

An early bed warming pan with engraved, pierced, and repousse ornamented overhanging lid over pan both in brass. Handle and pan frame is of wrought iron, the latter with with brass turning and finial. Overall length is 40 inches and the lid is 13 inches in diameter. Plentiful evidence of continuous use over many years and associated period repairs but without brittleness and subsequent cracking ('brass disease'). We would date it to the latter part of the 17th century but it could be early 18th and is most probably of English origin. Bed pans of this age are rare and are not to be confused with the copper 'country teashop' variety!

Four old French pewter measures - 1/2 litre, 1/2 litre, 2 deciliter and 1 decilitre. All have maker's marks. As we are by no means experts or even knowledgable on continental pewter and AA stipulate a date we have assigned a notional period of date of 1925 to 40 - they may be older (which we doubt, or younger.
