Vintage Early Barton Wooden Boiler @ £6.95 SOLD
Here is an early Barton wooden boiler with grey and speckled white painted finish. The feat are three nails, and further details of knobs on the front are also nails, so quite crudely made but effective. Overall this is in a reasonably played with condition but is missing a tiny bottom lip that should have slightly protruded out from the bottom….but is not that noticeable and certainly not detrimental to the whole item. Nevertheless the price reflects this- bargain for someone. Measures 3 1/4″ high x 1 1/4″ widest point x 1″ deepest point. Nice item.

Vintage Barton Pink Plaster Bathroom Suite @ £14.50
Here is a vintage pink plaster bathroom suite, still with original metal taps and lift up plastic toilet seat As you can see, there are a few chips in the plaster, mainly in three of the four corners of the bath and just one or two teeny minor nibbles around the toilet and sink. These plaster items would have been quite fragile in young hands so it is a miracle that any survived at all. This is quite a delightful set.

Measures 1 3/8″ wide x 1″ to top of remaining flower.
