Instant Cottage Chic Collection

This grouping of a vintage wicker table, alarm clock, and floral oil painting was gathered on a recent buying trip. All worked so well together we decided to sell them as a as an instant collection.

The whole collection is loaded with the classic cottage chic patina and the charm that comes only from a lifetime of good use.

The vintage wicker table measures 17 1/2" tall by 14 1/2" wide at the base of the legs and the top is 14 1/2" in diameter. It has old blue paint with the perfect amount of paint loss. Some minor wicker loss at the base of the legs, which only enhances the cottage chic charm. c. early 1900's.

The vintage alarm clock measures 4 1/2" tall by 4 1/4" wide. It is a "Minute Man" alarm clock and the original blue paint is distressed and contains some surface rust. The clock face is blue as well. The clock does not work and is being sold with this collection for decorative purposes only. c. 1950's.

Finally, our favorite part of the collection is the vintage oil painting of beautiful pastel Chrysanthemums also known as "football mums" or "homecoming mums." The painting is done on masonite artist board and probably dates from the 1940's. It is signed "Edm." It measures 8 5/8" wide x 16" tall.
