First off, I am finally starting to slowly transition my bedroom towards pre-1960's spec. I had been in desperate need of a new bureau for quite some time, and everyone kept saying "go to Ikea". Ikea is fine and dandy for certain things, but their bureau's seriously lack any character, or good looking design for that matter. During a visit to my grandmothers house I realized she still had my grandpa's old dresser that he bought sometime in the late '50s or early '60s of which she allowed me to take! I'm am pleased as punch to have inherited such a grand piece of old world craftsmanship. Goes really with the original Victorian shutters and window moldings, some of the very few details left on the house during an awful 1970's downgrade. If I recall, these walls were once covered in emerald and purple wallpaper, complemented by a turquoise carpet. The radio I've owned since 2007, but had stored it until recently. I believe it's a late '30s-early '40s model, but there's no trace of a manufacturer.
This suit jacket had been listed on Etsy as a 1970's blazer, but I instantly knew from the skeleton liner and just overall cut and style that it was definitely pre-1945, and with an affordable price tag I had to have it.
