Classic Scandinavian armchair for re upholstery. Designed by Swedish designer Folke Ohlsson for Fritz Hansen who are best known as makers of Arne Jacobsen furniture this great design dates to the late 1950s . Its one of the few designs that was made in reasonably large enough quantities for them to be matched occasionally in to pairs . We’ve currently got 3 in stock , all needing total re-upholstery including after some 50 years of use. This one has been stripped back , the foam replaced, and been part covered in a Fire Retardant Barrier cloth to crib 5 (commercial use, so higher than for domestic) so its ready for your choice of fabric . We’ve priced it in “as is ” condition , and our upholsterer will charge a further £150 to complete it in your own fabric , or you can use your own upholsterer . As it has a good rake to the back it is really deep at 94cms . Definitely a chair to sit back and relax in ! InteriorBoutiques.com

An extremely rare pair of high backed armchairs, made by quality British firm Dalescraft. We date these chairs to the mid-late 1950s. They have been fully restored from the ground up, with the original horsehair being replaced by its modern day equivalent (rubberised horsehair). The fabric has been replaced with a quality wool felt, with the objective of trying to keep close to the colour of fabric originally used. The frames have been reset, rectifying any loose joints, stripped and cleaned and newly polished. An extremely stylish vintage pair of chairs, which are now like new!

Roger Lascelles has spent the past 30 years building a collection of vintage and antique clocks that is second to none. In the premises of the old Wandsworth clock factory Roger maintains a collection of over 500 clocks, ranging from antique grandfather clocks to huge external turret dials, from Bakerlite mantels to old French enamels.

Clock Props, Roger Lascelles has spent the past 30 years building a collection of vintage and antique clocks that is second to none. In the premises of the old Wandsworth clock factory Roger maintains a collection of over 500 clocks, ranging from antique grandfather clocks to huge external turret dials, from Bakerlite mantels to old French enamels. Roger still frequents antique markets and auction houses at home and abroad and with the help of a small team of skilled craftsmen, will often enjoy reviving an old electric clock that has seen better days, into a fully functional clock using a modern quartz movement, while maintaining all the charm and character of the original. Roger’s latest venture, clockprops.com is to offer many old and interesting clocks for sale or to hire. So if you are looking to decorate a film set or just want to own a piece of clock history this website will be an indispensible source.

Here is an English turret clock dial from ca 1900. It's the type of church or town hall clock you might see today on a Victorian or Edwardian church or public buildings. They are made of copper with a convex shape to the dial, not just for the 3D effect this gives, but to disperse the rain when it fell on the dial. This verdigrised dial has resorted numerals. We have made a pair of lightweight hands, which we have specially adapted to fit a heavy duty quartz movement. A highly decorative and interesting English clock dial

Large enamel clocks like this are nearly all French and were found outdoors on public buildings with heavy turret clock movements driving the hands. This example has replica hands which we have made and keeps perfect timing because of the heavy duty quartz movement we have fitted to the back of the dial. There is damage at the numeral 4 which looks as though it might have been from a bullet fired at it, perhaps during WWII! You can see where the bullet has partly penatrated the metal.

We have always been attracted to oversized clocks. In the past they had very heavy steel hands that required a massive movement either mechanical or electric to make them function. We have pioneered a way to make replica hands out of light weight material that are suitably balanced and antiqued before fitting them to a heavy duty especially adapted quartz movement that runs on a AA battery. This has made us specialists in these type of clocks, which now find their way into large public and private spaces and can look stunning as a working wall feature. This particular example dates from about the 1920's and shows all the signs of weathering by its brown rusted surface.
