Fantastic Custom Dining Table By Ron Puckett


10 23b 004

Wow. This might be the nicest piece we’ve had all year. It was made in Richmond Virginia in 2006; somehow made it out here and we’ve been incredibly fortunate in getting it.

It was made by Ron Puckett, a contractor and bespoke furniture maker featured in some really swanky venues.

Even though it is pushing a decade old the table is in great condition.  There are a couple faint watermarks but they blend in nicely (I didn’t see them at first).   I’d guess that it is cherry with ebony inlay as a single large rectangle measuring 42 inches across, 72 long and 30 tall.

Original retail was merely $5450 (plus sales tax). We’re thinking $1950 is a good asking price. Offers will be considered of course, as usual some will be considered longer than others.

Vintage Victrola Cabinet Phono


IMG_1215

Electric powered cabinet phonograph by Victrola.  I used an extension cord to test it and it is in working order.  The cabinet shows some signs of abuse during shipping but is in fair shape otherwise. Included are a bunch of vintage 78’s including some gems like the theme from The Third Man (dig that crazy zither music . . . ).

Things around here have been busy lately, a lot like stepping out the window and pulling the ground up really fast, so her’s another quick post.

Set of three nesting tables, in great shape. also a pair of fine side tables with two drawers each. We’ve been so busy we haven’t had a chance to take the plastic off let alone dust them. It’ll happen I swear.

Dorothy Thorpe Style Punch Bowl & Glasses


IMG_1212It  is as the title says. Really not much to add other than all the pieces are in good condition, there are 10 cups and you’ll have to BYOL (bring your own ladle).

The bowl is, conveniently, about 7 x 11.

Tualatin, Gettin’ In


IMG_1204

Finally some fine new stuff!
With a rare combination of events the stock at our Tualatin store has been a little lean lately. More families are being served and we’ve cleared out old dead stock (really that creamer that’s been here for a year can go away!) and are working to revitalize the place. Frankly it’s been overdue for a good cleaning and some rearrangement. This post is being constructed in an environment of other projects needing attention so it too is lean. If you want more info on these pieces, give the store a call (503 612 0020) or stop by 8380 SW Nyberg St. Tualatin 10 to 4 everyday.

Above we have a nice vintage serpentine front mahogany dresser or sideboard. It has 12 drawers and is in good condition and if time allows can be improved with a dash of Uncle Maurice’s famous snake oil furniture cure. $235

Below is a buffet, it looks to be a newer rather than vintage piece. In good condition.

School days, golden rule days.

Jefferson Davis Shrine Plate


8 16 001

For good or ill, I am a New Englander. This includes the full-on hangover of Puritanism, Calvinist miserliness, cynical social liberalism and the memory of abolitionist movements with the bitter and torpid taste of South Boston reality.

So bear that in mind should I respond, in person, to this Jefferson Davis Shrine plate with slight apoplexy.

But we do live in a modern age where all values are relative and my job is to give bad riddance to good rubbish (or something like that).

Jefferson Davis Shrine plate, perfect for an art project too incendiary for me to dare here. Approximately 7 inches in diameter and in good physical condition.

Natuzzi Brown Leather Club Chair & Ottoman


10 18b 001

They say that winter is on its way. Essential for mental health during the dreary season is a comfortable place to rest and perhaps to sleep until spring.  This leather club chair with matching ottoman by Natuzzi should do the trick nicely.

$425

My What A Big Pony!


10 18 001

Cool big rocking horse, big enough to hold at least this adult! It is about 65 inches tall and 58 inches long. It is wood with a brass pole and we’ve been told it is about 35 years old. $300 SOLD

Act now and we can make a deal on the theater scenery sized painting in the background (106 inches by 84 inches, $200).  If the painting isn’t amusement park enough for you it’d be pretty easy to redo in a more fitting theme . . . as modeled below.
