A Couple of Lovely Pieces of Furniture

DH and I volunteer at a charity thrift store and we routinely get donated collections of things that people have collected over the years, from Boyd's Bears, to LLadro, Waterford etc.  Furniture runs the gambit from high end Scandinavian, to MCM, and to everyday, average things.

 

I saw these two lovely pieces when I last "worked" and I loved the details on the pieces.  There were a few nicks here and there. but not horrible.  i definitely can appreciate the workmanship and the detailing of the pieces.

This detail is on the other side as well.

As for the wood, there is bird's eye maple, and I believe cherry.

@Pezzie :  Did they come home with you?  I would be tempted by them even though I have no room.

@Hoovermom No they did not come home with me.  I don't have room for it and it really doesn't go with my decor, but it will find a good home I am sure.

@Pezzie What beautiful pieces!  My father was a real estate agent in an old town with many Victorian homes.  The house I grew up in is 250 years old.  It was filled with beautiful pieces of furniture as he often had first choice before contents were sold.  This piece would fit right in!

 

Thank you sharing.
