Some items from todays Windsor Estate

 Today Kristen come home with lots of items from an old Windsor home of a lady who had lived there for the last 74 years and only been forced to leave a few months ago, at the great age of 99. The family had taken a lot of items and they were on to their third skip, ... ugh !, by the time he got there this morning. But he managed to get a fair few pieces some of which I have pictured below.
Among the things he brought home was this good size silky oak blanket box
An ornate old sideboard top but sadly no base, though would make a great coat rack or overmantle.
Lots of different shaped old chairs.
Old luggage trolley in good order.
Hat boxes
Lots of hat boxes. The old dear must have loved to go out in style.
The above blue one would be my favourite
A good amount of English china
Lovely old fan and hand mirror.
Glass ware and pottery.
Fancy Art Nouveau vase
Fantastic coloured old enamel teapot.
But of course it all adds up to a table full of cleaning.

Don't forget if you see something you fancy on the blog to email me.

  9. Catherine, can you please let me know if you get any old garden statues, fountains, pots, urns, etc. The kitsch-ier, the better. Cheers.
