19th Century Shop Backfitting from Spain

This charming old 'Almacén' (Grocery) store pine backfitting, which I found at a local Spanish fair, in fact hails from the provincial town of Lleida in Catalonia, Eastern Spain. circa 1890-1910. With old powder blue painted backboards and complete with its rows of spice drawers and grain bins, the photos show it set up in the kitchen of our home in France. Measuring 123" wide x 102" high x 9" deep (12.5" at the base), its shown decorated with our own kitchen paraphernalia. An added feature is that it breaks down into 3 roughly equal independent units of 40 inches width (see second to last photo). Because of the height of the ceiling in our kitchen and in order to stand our collection of English Victorian tea canisters on the top of the unit, the top cornice boarding which is viewable in the last photo, has been left off in the primary photos. Dating between 1875- 1910. Measures 315 cms wide x 260 high x 31 deep

The Antique Warehouse
133-135 Pancras Road
United Kingdom


A pioneer in decorative antiques, Malcolm has been in the business since giving up law studies and given his passion for French and Mediterranean art and traditions, it seems apt that his London shop/warehouse nestles beside the Eurostar Rail Terminus at London's St Pancras Station.

One of the foremost dealers in naive objects, folk art, fairground carvings and the visually decorative, he is driven by his love for objects that fire the imagination. Renowned for unearthing pieces with a rare magical quality, he sources the original, the one-off and the inspiration for regular long time clients and dealers or for newer contacts seeking either something beautiful for their homes or just the making of a good investment.

A visit to Relic Antiques 'Antique Warehouse' is guaranteed to open a door to a star quality stock. Expect the unexpected, from simple craftsman made pieces, or the flippantly amusing like period shop signs and fairground art, to the more sophisticated such as charming paintings and unusual examples of country furniture.

When in London visit the 'Antique Warehouse' which is located at 133-135 Pancras Road, London NW1 1UN and though normally open late afternoons only (3pm-6pm) on weekdays and 1pm-5pm on Saturdays, it is always worth calling ahead to make sure we are open.
