Breaking News!

Just a quick note here to announce that going forward our primary online presence will be through our Facebook group page and our Instagram page. I will on occasion post here, but I find the Facebook page much easier to update hours weekly, and posting pieces on Instagram goes much quicker. Also we have a YouTube channel that I occasionally publish videos of recent “finds” and picks Links below

Starting July 15 The doors of Time Capsule will open again. Hours are going to be a bit fluid for the first few weeks. So I will be posting the hours for each week at the beginning of each week on the STORES FACEBOOK Group page (search Time Capsule Dunnville) For the first week the hours are as follows: Monday-Closed Tuesday-Closed Wednesday- 10am-6pm Thursday-10am-6pm Friday-Closed Saturday-11:00am-5pm Sunday-11:00am-4pm The new reality makes certain inconveniences, necessary evils. As advised by the provincial overlords and with the safety of my family, my customers and the public in general in mind, I ask if you could please adhere to these requests. 1. Please use hand sanitizer (provided by us) upon entering the store. 2. Please bring and wear a mask when in the store. 3. Only 3 customers in the store at one time. 4. Please maintain the physical distancing protocols of 6 feet as required by the province Hopefully these requirements will eventually become a thing of the past, but for now I ask for your understanding and co-operation I hope to see your faces soon (at least the parts not covered by a mask).

NOW SOLD Trio of 1955 Maple BENTWOOD Side CHAIRS Stamped ROXTON Canadian Mid Century Modern Thonet

NOW SOLD. Here is a rarely seen trio of classic Canadian designed Mid Century Modern Chairs. They are bentwood maple, all three with date & manufacturers stamps 1955 Sept. 2 Roxton 500 Waterloo Que. On the bottoms Roxton Mills was a fairly well known Furniture Manufacturer in Quebec . They did primarily traditional style furniture but in the 1950’s to compete with the new Modern Styles being introduced by the likes of Russel Spanner at Ruspan , and Jan Kuypers at Imperial , they introduced a modest selection of more modern designs. On page 63 of the Design In Canada Book (Gotlieb and Golden 2004 ) they discuss Roxton Mills . These three chairs are example of that attempt at Modern Design. Clearly influenced by similar Thonet Chairs of the era and the bentwood techniques of Herman Miller with their Eames designed chairs, these stand out on their own. The unique tapering to the bentwood legs give it a very light look while the thick seat base provides sturdy comfort. These have seem some use with a few cigarette burns, and a bit of seam separation on one seat. However I like the look they have taken on with years of use, an honest patina. These chairs have character. Structurally they are solid, a testament to their well thought out design. Depth (back to front) is 20 1/8 inches, the Width is 16 inches, Seat height is 17 ½ inches and the backrest height is 31 inches. Sadly in Canada we haven’t championed our Mid-Century Modern design pieces as much as we should. However with the rising interest in Russel Spanner and Jan Kuypers work amongst other, that does seem to be slowly changing over the last 20 years or so. Get in on these chairs before everyone else catches on.
