Antique Carved Oak Barley Twist Side Table

Antique Carved Oak Barley Twist Side Table

Made in England around 1920, this carved oak side table is a beautiful work of art. The oak has a beautiful patina that will continue to grow more stunning as it ages. The carvings and barleytwist turnings blend well together to form a piece that is decorated, but not too busy. The single, large drawer has dovetailed joints making it very strong. The entire piece is very sturdy and in very good condition with normal wear for a piece of this age. There is a shaped backsplash along the top that finishes this table off nicely. Overall this is a perfect piece for a variety of uses and should blend well with many different styles.
Dimensions: 30" wide x 19" deep x 31.5" high

The Window of a Spanish Mission Style Villa in White - Moonee Ponds

The Window of a Spanish Mission Style Villa in White - Moonee Ponds

The facade of this Spanish Mission style villa in the Melbourne suburb of Moonee Ponds features a front window of gemetric leadlight glass. Flanked by barley twist columns the window features a shell pattern above the central pane and stepped bricks below. All these details pay homage to the Spanish Mission style.

The Spanish Mission style was typically a style that emerged in California during the interwar years and spread across the world.

Moonee Ponds, like its neighbouring boroughs of Ascot Vale and Essendon, was etablished in the late 1880s and early 1890s. However, unlike its neighbours, it was an area of affluence and therefore only had middle-class, upper middle-class and some very wealthy citizens. Houses like these were the last to populate the borough and would have suited a medium sized family of moderate means who appreciated the modernity that the villa offered.

Barley Twist Pillars: Shopfront -  Lancaster Place

The building that this shopfront is attached to, looks Edwardian, there's another similar shopfront to the left. One is Caffe Nero and the other is Pret a Manger, the original fascias have been kept. I love the barley twist pillars, which are very unusual. They then turn the corner in to Strand and there are another two.

English Oak Antique Dressing Table on Barley Twist Legs

This oak dressing table is in very good condition. It is sturdy and the finish has held up very well over the years. The mirror is beveled and does have quite abit of spotting to it. Spotting is when the silver in the mirror tarnishes. The mirror is held sturdy by two barley twist supports. The chest portion is a two over two drawer design. Each drawer has tear drop pulls, is hand cut dovetailed front and back, and the drawer bottoms are solid and beveled. Carvings adorn each drawer and the chest, while the entire piece sits on barley twist legs joined by a stretcher. Each leg has one steel caster at the bottom. Overall this piece is in very good condition with the mirror spotting being the only blemish. This dressing table was made in England and we date it from about 1920.
Dimensions: 42" wide x 19" deep x 65" high

Dining room, 1989

Dining room, 1989

My dining room, looking towards the back garden. The original entrance to the kitchen is on the left. Sunday 08 January 1989.

I am still using the same dining table* and chairs (bought from MFI). I really would like to replace the table with a more traditional wooden extendible dining table, similar to what my parents and Grandma use to have many years ago. I already have four traditional wooden chairs made of oak that were originally in my Grandmas house, however two of them do require the dark brown leather seats to be reupholstered.

When I bought the house the previous owners had painted the dining room wallpaper "Milk Chocolate brown". I repainted them "Dawn Mist" as seen here. No work had yet taken place on landscaping the back garden when this photo was taken.

*A dining table is where you sit and have meals with family or friends and hold a conversation (with the television in the lounge stitched off). I do prefer to use a dining table rather than sitting in the lounge on a couch to eat your food where you end up spilling most of it all down the front of your clothes while watching some c**p soap on the tv.

Dining Room Progress

Dining Room Progress

The plastering is finished and drying.

I've always wanted to spend money lavishley, but never dreamed it would be on a dining room.
We spent all day looking at furniture, flooring and paint. Decided on a light oak dining table and chairs, a solid (darker) oak floor, and light yellow/cream on the walls - we even ordered some vertical blinds for the window and the living room.

Looked a great day for photography, but I missed it! Did have tea in Betty's (2 days in a row). Bet the weather is non-photographic tomorrow! Ah well.

If I haven't commented much on your pictures recently, the above picture is part of the reason why.

Recalling Sudek

Recalling Sudek

"During his long life (1896-1976), Czech photographer Josef Sudek was known as the "Poet of Prague" for good reason. Born 20 miles east of the city, he seldom left the region before being drafted into the army in World War I. And after he was wounded by one of his own men, causing his right arm to be amputated, he made only a few trips in Europe before deciding never to leave Prague again, a decision by which he abided.
For 50 years, Sudek photographed solely in the parks, streets, gardens and forests of Prague or in his (Prague) studio. But such was the magic of his pictures that they suggested a universality of experience that drew others to him. Foremost among the visitors was Sonia Bullaty, who, after World War II, left a German concentration camp to become, briefly, Sudek's assistant and, more importantly, a lifelong friend and collector of his images."

The round table

The round table

This massive table, recently dated to the 14th century, was repainted in its present form for King Henry VIII (he of the six wives, who lived 1491 - 1547). Up until recently the table was for centuries venerated as the mysterious round table of the 'Once and Future King' Arthur who was reputed to have lived in the Dark Ages around 600 a.d.

The names of the mythical 24 knights are written around the edge of the 18 foot (5.5 metre) diameter table, weighing 1.2 tons (1200kg), surmounted by King Arthur on his throne. King Arthur looks remarkably like Henry VIII.

The table hangs high on the wall of the Great Hall in Winchester, which is the only remaining part of the castle commissioned by William the Conqueror for his capital: Winchester was then the capital of all England.

I've been in living rooms that look just like this! Yes, some of my collector friends are 50s buffs. What's not to like about mid-century-modern design?

Even still, I had to add my own touches: lot of saturation, contrast boost, & watercolor filter for a tad more pizzazz....
