This bedroom suite is in excellent original condition. The suite has been polished in our workshops. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges, but nothing significant considering the age of the item. The drawers all close flush within their frames. The doors do not have any splits in them; they also all close flush to the frame and are not warped. The doors retain their original working lever locks (with key) and adjustable locking angle mechanisms. The suite retains its original Bakelite handles. The bed retains its original complete brackets and angle irons, all of which are clean and not rusty. Please note, the bed does not include a sprung base, however one that fits would be easy to source, as this bed is a standard double size. The suite boasts the original polish and patination, thus displaying a rich golden brown colour. The suite is extremely well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use. The quality is reflected in the weight of the bedroom suite; the individual items are heavy to lift!
