Dotty Art Deco Bedroom (SOLD)

Details of each item

WARDROBE: Solid wooden, vintage wardrobe with hand-painted, elephant motif on both doors - it probably dates from the 1930's, given the colours of its original paintwork. Inside a metal hook holds four hangers for dolly's wardrobe. Please note this is a shabby-chic piece and shows a little wear, although it has been recently hand-waxed. On top sits a white ceramic elephant.

BED: Charming, black metal bedstead, probably also from the 1920's - 30's. A tufted, ticking mattress is topped by cotton sheets, a soft blanket with ribbon trim and a cotton pillow with the same ribbon trim. On top sits a handmade, French-knotted white cotton coverlet (please see close-up of bed to see the details of the bedclothes). Note: all bedding is hand-made and hand-washable.

BEDSIDE TABLE: An aqua wooden table holds dolly's books, while on the wall above is a mounted, ceramic clock (non-working).

CHAIR: a handmade wooden chair, dating from the same period as the clothes cupboard, holds a sweet, crocheted doll.

WALLS: Covered in striped and dotted, vintage patterned paper, which has been mounted on two pieces of 5mm thick A3 foam board. Each piece of foam board measures 42x29.5cm or 11 5/8 x16 3/8in.
