Antique Oak Washstand

This is a beautifully rustic washstand which dates to the late 1800's, made of mellow coloured oak it is a provincial and primitive looking piece that came from an old country house in Devon, ideal for anyone who likes country antique furniture.

The washstand would be ideal for a bathroom, the top could be adapted to house a bowl style sink or it would also make a nice addition to a bedroom or hallway.

It is simply designed with a rectangular top set on tall tapered legs which, it has to be said, are quite bandy, to the front a single wide drawer offers storage space for paperwork etc.

The panelled top is fitted with a wooden gallery which is attractively shaped and the drawer is finished with black turned knobs.

The wood has a lovely naturally waxed finish which has a nice sheen and is very tactile.

The table is rustic, as you can see the legs have bowed over the years which has given this piece immense character. The legs have some old inactive wood worm holes and there are various small marks to the table top.

VINTAGE HOUSE is a small family run business based in South Devon, selling quality hand painted vintage and antique furniture and quirky home wares.

Our interest in Vintage furnishings has been years in the making.  From an early age I spent time at auctions and antique fairs in South Devon with my mum, a passion inherited from my eccentric grandmother who had an eye for quality and a hoarders heart for beautiful things.

Subsequently what started as a hobby has turned into a full time business, turning the endless search for things we love into things we can sell from our home and in our online store.

We source quality antique and vintage furniture from the 19th and 20th centuries and where necessary revive and restore pieces to bring them back to life and up-to-date.

In our workshop we undertake traditional French polishing and upholstery methods, as well as self taught painting techniques to re-finish pieces that require attention.

Most of our furniture is made of solid wood, usually oak, mahogany or pine, we appreciate quality and craftsmanship and prefer selling British made furniture whenever possible.

Selling pieces that are useful and practical in the modern home, storage is always a key theme, appreciating that people need attractive items that also provide functionality.

Our painted furniture is created using eco-friendly paints and waxes from Rustoleum, Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company.

It has always been important to us to have a 'green' business, we love the concept of recycling old furniture instead of buying new.

Quality furniture is hard to find at a reasonable and affordable price and we feel that we provide both.  The things we sell don't belong in the mass produced age of flat pack furniture, but are tailored towards an individuality that will suit both modern and vintage homes alike.
