This is part of a bedroom suite my mother bought at auction in 1960 or 61. It was always there in what was my bedroom.

Now it is broke and gone out. It is one of the few pieces of furniture I’d like at my place but getting it there would have been disproportionately expensive.

As it turned out it did not survive the trip down the stairs. I had not thought of the grab rails put in to help my parents get up the stairs.

I am probably going to have to take the rails off, but with a tallboy stuck on the stairs Mr Hammer had to come to the rescue, and tallboy is shorter now.
