I am pleased to report that the house was purchased and made its journey to New Jersey for much needed restoration. I will be writing a magazine article about the house once the restoration is complete, but I want to share a little bit about it here as I get started. It was built in at the request of a lady who owned a bookshop in Boston. It was built for a specific doll that resided in the bookshop and the scale is a monumental 2″ to 1′, so the house is five feet tall! The family from whom I purchased the house had owned it for over 40 years and in that time, it had seen a lot of play. The children could actually climb into the principal rooms and curl up in them, and over the years, all that platy took its toll, but it was so fortunate that no one ever painted over the two Sidney Burleigh murals that made me fall in love with this house. The house is just two rooms plus the staircase hall. The woodwork has been painted over several times but the murals on the side wall of the lower room are intact. The architectural details are quite impressive even in this condition. If not for the brass plaque found on the side of the house, the owners would never have known about the connection to Tynietoy and would never have found me on the internet.

Portable boxes for writing materials had existed for many centuries and in many cultures. However it was not until the last decades of the 18th century that the socio-economic circumstances in England necessitated the wide use of a portable desk in the form of a box which could be used on a table or on one’s lap. Although quality, ornament and form did play an important part in its selection as a personal item, it is the purpose for which it was used which gave prominence to the writing box, at a time of expanding intellectual curiosity, communication, literacy and increased commercial activity.

A buyer’s guide for an antique chest of drawers. One of the first questions to ask yourself is what wood is the chest made from? If it is early 18th Century it may well be in walnut and if it is Georgian or later it is probably made out of mahogany. Then have a look at the drawer linings. If they are made in pine the chest is probably of secondary quality whereas if they are of oak or mahogany it is of superior quality.

We love visiting the area because of the beautiful mountains, unique sites, and for all the wonderful antique stores in nearby Lexington. During this past trip, we found a new antique store in downtown Buena Vista. The store front used to be a local hardware store, but it had closed within the past few years.

History of Antique Furniture – A Guide to Antique Dining Tables In terms of the antique dining tables available today we perhaps think as far back as the 16th Century for primitive plank top refectory tables but of coarse the civilised Worlds of ancient history have always built tables for dining.
Perhaps the very first were smooth flat rocks used by our cave dwelling ancestors? Generally speaking the further we look back in recent centuries the rarer the table and hence greater the price. Fortunately, in terms of budget, many of these early refectory tables were revived copied at later dates and have survived in greater numbers. By the mid 18th Century our seafaring merchants were importing highly fashionable exotic timbers and mahogany became the most desirable choice for cabinet makers and their clients.
The transition from a mixed period of construction of earlier primitive design and cleaner Georgian designs during the early 18th Century soon became nearly exclusively formal designs during George II reign due to the enormous influence of Thomas Chippendale and his piers. It was during this early Chippendale period that the first examples of adjustable and extendable dining tables were designed and made. Using the tripod cabriole leg base design, often found on Georgian wine and occasional tables, much larger examples were made with rectangular tops in a series of three or four pedestal based sections joined by clips.
