The Circus Bedroom
Popping up in a sale in Dorset in a couple of weeks is this little delight for a mere £300 - 400 a little bit of Cecil Beaton's 'Circus Bedroom' could be yours (+ 19.5% commission / shipping / restoration....but lets forget about the nitty gritty). It certainly needs a new seat and looking atthe back, I've an inkling a bit of pub vinyl-leatherette restoration may have gone on but what a great piece. One of it's companion side tables can be seen below
www.offthelist.co.uk is the result of years of voracious antique buying around the UK; no auction, dealership or junk shop (a favourite haunt) failed to keep a gem buried or kitsch ceramic unpurchased. Subsequently, the house began to bulge at its seems and my more formal selling outlets were never going to be suitable showrooms for the whimsy and delight of my ever expanding collection. The lady in my life, I discovered, began to dig into drawers and siphon off surfaces suitable trinkets for presents and through her unintended genius Off the List was born!
