The section begins with a good collection of oak and country furniture. There is a small example of a 17th Century three tier buffet dating from circa 1660 (FS26/892). It has sustained a small amount of restoration but is competitively estimated at £1,000-£1,500.
There are two 18th Century oak coffer bachs (FS26/897 and FS26/898) with estimates at £200-£300 and £150-£200 respectively and Windsor chairs (FS26/902) to grace any kitchen or dining room, a pair of Victorian elm, ash and fruitwood elbow chairs, with an estimate of £400-£600 and a harlequin set of six elm, ash and fruitwood elbow chairs (FS26/903) with a pre-sale estimate of £500-£600.
If one mixed the old with the more contemporary then the Windsor chairs would look good around the octagonal oak dining table by Robert Thompson of Kilburn 'The Mouseman' (FS26/991). This attractive table with adzed top is estimated at £3,000-£4,000.
If you are looking for a really good 18th Century mahogany sideboard (FS26/920), which is not too large, then there is a beautiful quality George III example, estimated at a modest £1,000-£1,500.
