Short term accommodation sought in July/August

Hello! We’re looking to renovate our bungalow in Chadlington in the summer and would love to avoid living there for a month or so during the worst of it..... something for a family of four would be great, anything considered to escape the dust, ideally around Chadlington, Charlbury or the Wychwoods. Thanks! Gilly 07968 914483

Antique bakelite ink stand

This is an ink stand made by Prettywell (type 1222) dating from around 1920-40. My mum inherited it from an older relative but we don't have a use for it. 

It's black bakelite, with 2 glass ink wells. It would make an unusual gift for someone into fountain pens, art deco style or vintage stuff generally. 

The moulded bakelite base measures 16cm x 22cm and is in good condition, though is showing the odd sign of wear and dullness common with old bakelite as well as a couple of tiny drops of something like paint which I haven't attempted to remove in case I cause damage. It has two recesses for inkwells to stand in safely, and three grooves for fountain pens to lay on. 

The heavy glass inkwells are in great condition but would benefit from a bit of careful cleaning. Their two bakelite lids are in the same condition as the main stand. 

If you're interested, I'd like £25 for it but am happy to listen to offers. Please contact me via the website.

Mercury 1082 induction range cooker

RRP £5075 but selling for £3500.

This stunning mercury cooker is being reluctantly sold as it doesn't fit in our new kitchen.

It is 4 years old and has had very light use so is in excellent condition. It has a multifunction main oven, large fan oven, 5 induction zones and a high speed electric grill with robust glide out tray.

The Mercury brand has a strong association with serious cooking equipment, with its roots deeply in commercial catering. Mercury range cookers are seen as objects of desire not just for this reason, but because they also happen to look and feel stunning and add a particularly pleasing dimension to the cooking process, and of course to any kitchen. Matching extraction hoods are equally impressive and will complement the range cooker perfectly.

It sells new for £5075 but we are selling for £3500 as we want a quick sale.

Please feel free to come and see it or call me if you have any questions.

Desk & Matching Storage Cupboard

Impressive leather topped oak reproduction desk incorporating useful features such as drop-down storage for computer keyboard and housing for printer and paper.  Matching cupboard (designed to look like drawers) gives further storage space.  The desk is large (203cms (l) x 61.5cms (w) x 76.5cms (h) and the cupboard measures 63cms (l) x 48.5cms (w) x 76.5cms (h).  Please be aware that these items are heavy, do not come apart and are currently located up two flights of stairs so would almost certainly require a van with help to remove them.  In recognition of the likely removal costs, the items are being offered for free.  For further information, to view or to arrange collection please get in touch with me via this website.

Ikea dresser / storage - £20

This is a tall wooden dresser which we no longer need.  

Part of Ikea's Liatorp range, this has open shelves above and a cupboard with shelf beneath. 

Measurements are 215cm high x 91cm wide x 34cm deep, give or take a few mm for some decorative edges which can be detached if space is tight. 

We bought this second-hand, so it's seen some wear but is in good condition both structurally and cosmetically.

We'd ideally like £20 for it. 

Available now to collect from Wychwood Paddocks. Note that it doesn't come apart easily so you'll need quite a big vehicle (we fitted it in the car with all the seats down).  

Please contact me via the website if you'd like it.
