Timeless Antiques has been out on the hunt for name brand vintage furniture. One brand that we have spent a great of energy on finding is the manufacturer of Heywood Wakefield high quality furniture. We have added recently to our inventory a grouping of the Rio bedroom furniture—twin bed pair, nightstands and hi boy dresser that was produced in 1943
For sale in our shop is this lovely student desk with dog bone side chair. Champagne finish. The desk has 3 drawers and bookshelf on right side end.
In the champagne finish, our customers will find that we have several different styles of matching side end tables. One square two tier table that is very deco looking was produced in the early 40’s.
We have a pair of the M308G Side End Tables that were produced from 1948 to 1953, and the 2 tier corner table M338 that was built to arrange sectional seating arrangements. The two tier end table M1502G.
For your dining room, we have the M190 narrow china cabinet with the server bottom and adjustable shelves hutch top with plate glass doors. This is in the original champagne finish from 1948 to 1950. The two adjustable shelves have plate rack lines for displaying that pretty set of china or glassware. The bottom has a drawer with a two door storage area with one shelf on a platform bottom.
We have the large extension table C3347G with two leaves and 6 chairs. On display in our store is the M169G Junior extension table with one leaf and 4 dog bone chairs. It was a very popular table with severely round corners-as oval as a rectangle can be. Made from 1950-1955.
We have a unique M394G Drop Leaf Service Cart that was produced from 1951 – 1952. It is a hard piece to find and can be very useful for serving cockails or dessert. When fully open it can be an extra table for the breakfast nook in the kitchen. Fully open it is 48″ x 38″. This piece is fitted with ball-bearing caster wheels with a roomy lower shelf.
Barbara has had lots of fun this summer, finding and decorating up her newest purchase of a 1962 14′ vintage trailer with vintage items that can be used on her get aways. The trailer was completely redone, everything fitted, painted and re-equipped for road and camping experience by a wonderful couple in the Lake Grove Area. I bought this trailer in June and took it out for it’s first get away in July after doing the Christine Palmer Antique Show in Portland. My dog Mickey and I headed to Medford for a furniture pick up and then on over to Florence. It is a dream and handles so beautifully. What a wonderful time I had.
It has been on display here at my store in Aurora in the parking lot. I displayed my wonderful finds. Set the table and the kitchen area. Customers love the turquoise garbage can and fan. Vintage lights for outside. It is colorful and cheerful.
In June I worked very hard re-upholstering a click back couch and chair with matching ottoman for the upcoming Expo Antique Show in Portland, Oregon. When I found this set I was really excited because I have had over the years click back couches that I have re upholstered and click back chairs by themselves, but never have I had a completed grouping. It has beautiful lines and is so very comfortable to sit on.
I choose two fabrics that complement each other. The back of the seat and the arm rest is circular deco fabric with green, blue, teal turquoise and white in it. The seat and back is with a matching green shade of texture fabric. The matching ottoman is all the matching green fabric.
The set was originally upholstered in pink jacquard fabric.
The chair and ottoman I re-upholstered at my home, but the couch was done up in Molalla at Mark and Sheryl Zahar’s place, who own Russellville Antiques. Sheryl had never upholstered before and she said it was really fun helping and watching me bring this couch back to life. The mechanisms on both the chair and the couch work beautifully for reclining them. The couch reclines all the way, while the chair reclines half way back and then it can click again and reclines all the way down to the flat position.
The pieces all have roller wheelers that allow the pieces to be moved easily and quickly into any place desirable.
Come see this set in Timeless Antiques booth at the Christine Palmer’s Antique Show on July 16th and 17th in Space G 46, 47.
