Good Antique English Country Furniture of any merit is proving particularly difficult to find so I was pleased to purchase a small English fruitwood spider-leg side table only 22 inches wide. It had an original somewhat oversized set of pieced brass handles above a set of open brackets tying legs to frieze, legs which were united together with turned stretchers. It really was a most charming thing…. Which briefly spoke to me ‘Veni Vidi Vici’

Antique Country Furniture

Some people will associate me with country furniture as this is what I started out dealing in, but currently this is proving even more difficult than Slipware to find!

Having said that, I was lucky to recently purchase one piece from the illustrious Petworth antiques dealer who trades under the name of David Swanson Antiques.

A small Fruitwood side table, very charming and at only 22” wide it even fits into our tiny cottage.
