More Stock

We have now been trading for nearly nine years in our own shop at 58, Long Street, Tetbury, Gloucestershire GL8 8AQ, as "Muir:Antiques for Modern Interiors", and will continue with our theme of mixing 1930s & 1940s and any 20th Century Antiques and Retro with some more traditional items. The shop is always open (even on Sundays), except when we travel abroad on buying trips, so still best to call us on +44(0)1666 504522, or on our mobile - +44(0)7836 758416, to ensure that we are open.

THIS PICTURE SHOWS our latest acquisition - An exquisite example of high-quality English Design and Craftsmanship, now considered Retro . This is the R-407 Sideboard, designed in 1950 by David Booth & Judith Ledeboer for, and manufactured by, Gordon Russell of Broadway. It was designed for the Festival of Britain in 1951, and subsequently became known as the "Helix" after the discovery of DNA sequencing in 1954. The sideboard is constructed of mahogany, with Bombay Rosewood veneer doors, with the unique "Helix" pattern routed through to reveal the white birch beneath. It is such an important design, and very few were constructed, that an example is in the V & A Museum in London, as a prime example of British Post-War design & manufacture. The sideboard measures 122cm wide X 47cm deep X 84cm high, and is in very good condition throughout. JUST SOLD.



Stock. Oval Marble Coffee Table Edge and Feet

Oval Marble Coffee Table

Immensely practical small coffee table with an oval marble top in creamy-white marble with black veining (Original lacquer is yellowing somewhat, and a couple of areas have peeled) The base is a very "Eames" four-foot design.
