We’ve recently acquired three pine library steps, originally sourced from the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth. This one has three treads and a shaped handhold in the top. It would have been used in one of the many storage rooms within the library. Solid and stable, it has all manner of uses now, both practical and decorative. c.1930s

The National Library of Wales was constructed from 1911 to 1915 on Penglais Hill, overlooking the university town of Aberystwyth. It is the largest library in Wales and holds over 6.5 million printed works. Interestingly, during WWII, it was used to store many thousands of nationally and internationally important artworks and manuscripts, including the Magna Carta and works by da Vinci, Shakespeare, Rembrandt, Rubens and many letters from kings and queens.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
