House of Horrors

One of the most bizarre items to turn up from America was this rusty steel mansion measuring nearly a metre high.  It is an intricate piece of artwork which seems to depict the story of a deteriotating relationship.  It begins optimistically on the ground floor, becomes tormented through the middle section, and finally ends in infidelity and murder on the top floor bedroom!  Nothing is known about the artist who created it, although a male lover is stood in front of an easel in one of the rooms which makes it tempting to assume it is somewhat autobiographical.  In any case it is a haunting sight full of heart-breaking details...

Come and check it out this weekend along with many other industrial beauties!

American Shipment, Summer 2012

Today we unloaded a 20 foot container from America packed with all sorts of mid-century industrial, including medical cabinets, dressing tables, signage, glassware and home accessories. There are some rare pieces in the mix, including a fantastic polished steel Art Deco suite. The vast majority is yet to be unpacked and priced, and many pieces will need a good cleaning, but we will have a few gifts from Uncle Sam priced and ready to go for the weekend!

French Industrial Cabinet

A fantastic example of French industrial chic, little is known about this stylish and rare cabinet, except perhaps that it was used as a larder of sorts due to the door mounted shelving and internal drawers. The cabinet has been fully stripped and polished and features a pair of very unique brass and aluminium handles. The unique array of storage options inside means that this cabinet would be perfect for office use, media storage or perhaps a gentlemans wardrobe!
