BASILDON NEW PERIOD FURNITURE

“DESIGNED AND PATENTED BY P.B. COW AND COMPANY LIMITED MADE BY HUNTINGTON AVIAVATION LTD BRITSH AND FOREIGN PATENTS APPLIED FOR.

These pieces are highly collectable and coveted, there is a dressing table in the Victorian & Albert museum, they have it listed as follows

This set was produced in the immediate post-war period as part of a matching suite of bedroom furniture. Similar to two aluminium chairs in the V&A collection W.3-2010, W.4-2010), designed by Ernest Race, it makes use of surplus materials used for the manufacture of military aircraft.

This object provides a companion and a contrast to the BA3 chairs; both are British designed and made, and while the Race design would go on to become a design classic, this table and its accompanying suite do not seem to have been a success.

One of the main issues was cost: a 4ft wardrobe from the same set as this dressing table retailed in 1946 at £74 7s 10d, compared to £16 17s for a Utility equivalent. The dressing table is a British example of furniture produced using industrial methods developed during wartime, and as such is comparable to the work in plywood of Charles and Ray Eames in the USA, although clearly it is of a more conservative taste.

In terms of the condition this piece has the original period patina, it has marks and wear all over in the form of scratches, small paint spots and so on, the patina is all part of the original charm, as such I’ve left them as they are
