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.
The doors on the wardrobe open to reveal a little shelf for storing your hats and bags.
I only have Divan Beds without an eider-down at the moment, I have had one before, but it was very fragile and I think moths had been at it. 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.
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.
When I looked at the reverse, I noticed that each one had a different back. I am not sure if this means a variation in the age of each piece.
The drawers for all the chest of drawers are made in the same way.
