This bed has a black base, so it could be added to the choice of colour list.  It should have a mattress but I am not sure what colour it should be.

These two wardrobes are the same style, with the little pins as hinges.  The difference being is the wardrobe on the right has a proper mirror inset into the door, whereas the one on the right is shiny metal which is not inset.

The new colour wardrobe is the same one in side, with a hanging rail and shelves.

Inside this wardrobe there is A Little Hidden Treasure, an original coat hanger.

The coat hanger is an inch long across the bottom, it is so thin I am surprised it survived.  These [2] would be packaged with the wardrobe, or sold separately.

HEADBOARD 1008/1

This headboard is a quite strange piece of furniture, because the bed without a headboard, just sits in front of it.  But, as a bonus the two panels at the top slide.

SINGLE BED 1036

The single bed is made in the style of Ercol, a British furniture manufacturer.

This is quite a complicated piece of furniture with the plastic mattress, actually fitted over a pressed metal frame.  The bars at the end are fitted onto a plastic base, which is then attached to the metal frame.  You can see how it all goes together in the picture showing the underside of the bed.

Compared with the single bed above, this is a very simple piece of furniture.  A smaller version of the double bed, the mattress and base came as one piece.  As added comfort for any doll, flocking has now been added. [Mine is a little damaged, but a good example.]

    It’s a truely ’60’s look. I like the way they modeled the mattresses but left it up to you whether to make fabric bedding.
