Barton Toys Caroline’s Home Bedroom

on

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.

Barton Dressing Table

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.

Barton Wardrobe

The doors on the wardrobe open to reveal a little shelf for storing your hats and bags.

Barton Divan Bed

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.

Barton Chest of Drawers

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.
