This set was made in 1927 in Victoriaville, Quebec and I am so happy that the grandchildren of the original owners decided to sell it. The photos are from the sellers as we still have to pick it up after the Easter weekend. I just love the shapely legs and curved footboard. I am so happy that it is a double, because our mattress and box spring in the guest room are double/full size. As soon as I saw the picture I thought of Susan at Maple and Magnolia's gorgeous bed on her dreamy sleeping porch.
I love the original mirror on the matching dresser.
I'm not sure if this piece would be called an armoire or a chest.
The last pieces in this set are the vanity with mirror and matching bench. The bench has some damaged caning but I might figure out another solution.
I have found some great deals lately on furniture finds, but I think this set is my favourite so far. I almost fainted when they said they would let it go for $200 for the complete set! We will wait until we pick it up to see if we will be keeping all the pieces for our guest bedroom in the basement. Then the debate will begin, to paint or not to paint? Probably paint because the seller said it is in great shape but would benefit from being refinished.
We are having a quiet day on this Good Friday. Mass this morning and then a visit with my oldest sister from Sudbury and my neice's family. Wishing you all a blessed Easter weekend.
