Barton Toys Caroline’s Home Bedroom

Below is a selection of my Barton Toys Caroline’s Home Bedroom Furniture, from the 1976 catalogue.

There is nothing complicated about the design of this furniture, it is solid and well made.  With a good use of different coloured wood.

The drawers on the dressing table are very simple, with one large drawer and no back.  They do have a habit of falling out on there on accord.

I only have Single Beds without eider-downs at the moment.  As you can see from the feature picture on the left, there is a double bed with a little shelf on the side, I must look out for this one.

CHEST OF DRAWERS

The chest of drawers was sold as a carded item on its own or with various room sets. 1021 Bedroom Suite and the 1023 Twin Bedroom Suite.

I have no idea about dating Barton Caroline’s Home furniture, just using the 1976 catalogue for reference.  I have three chest of drawers [4 in fact two match], each are made of slightly different coloured wood.

Barton Chest of Drawers

Looking as the back of these chest of drawers they have been constructed in different ways,  I am not sure if this means a variation in the age of each piece.

The drawers  are all made in the same way.

BEDROOM STOOL

Not sold as an individual item the Stool appeared as a carded item with the organ.  Also as part of various room sets. 1010 Bedroom, 1021 Bedroom Suite and the 1023 Twin Bedroom Suite.

TRIMMED BEDROOM 1009

Trimmed Bedroom 1009

This is a lovely pink trimmed bedroom set, it is in good condition.  Unfortunately the foam in the bedspread has turned to powder.  These pieces of furniture would be sold as a set and not sold individually.
