We can sadly impart no pearls of wisdom regarding this fantastically quirky set of scales other than to tell you that they are French and were used for weighing cheeses but more recently as a reading lamp.. How old?.......who knows but their looks and construction suggest the early years of the last century at least. Consisting of, mainly, pine with steel and iron fittings the base does have a few of those large typically French woodworm holes but nothing to worry about as they have been soused with the correct fluid. Fully functional - providing you have a set of weights as they come with just a few imperial ones - or an eccentrically decorative and functional conversation piece. Leather bound books included are Victorian illustrated Chambers Encyclopedias.

Elegant Edwardian glazed display cabinet
Attractive bureau de dame, Bonheur de jour or ladies writing desk (call it what you will) in walnut from around 1890 - 1900. With its multiplicity of cupboards and drawers it offers much storage space for paperwork, pens, rulers etc or the paraphernalia of our computer age, including the space to use a laptop. There are nine drawers and three cupboards - the upper two having six cubby holes apiece. Please note - when all but two of the photos were taken it was awaiting a new leather skiver in maroon. Will it fit your space however?...It is just under 38 inches wide and 24 inches deep with an overall height of 47 inches and a working top height of about 29 inches. The upper section (which can be removed if necessary) is some 10 inches deep and has a shapely little gallery on three sides. It retains its original brass castors and, as you can see, its full compliment of handles also.

Bureau de Dame Small writing desk
Found in an outhouse of a mid-Devon farm where they used to this early 20th century cheese press to make cider from their own small orchard.(A small copper spout was screwed to the base for this purpose, which we have left in place as part of its history). This small press was made in neighbouring Cornwall by Carne & son of St Keyne, near Liskeard. (Carnes were in business as Agricultural Engineers and Blacksmiths in St Keyne until 1921). Although unused for many years the mechanism press still operates smoothly but as most probably its future role will be decorative rather than practical it has been given a fresh lease of life by being converted into a lamp. As such it would fit well into a variety of settings but perhaps most appropriately would make a splendid accessory for a country pub, restaurant, canteen, cheese maker or shop as well as a great talking point. The two lamps are switched separately so that either or both can be lit and are fitted with the currently fashionable 'old fashioned' bulbs. Its wooden components are of elm with pitch pine underparts. The elm has evidence of some historic woodworm but to make sure they are truly so we have anointed it with suitable fluids. Its height varies according to whether it is screwed up or down but is roughly 3 feet.
