A Chinoiserie Bedroom in 1938 – for $49….

Posted: December 19th, 2018 | No Comments »

Carroll’s Furniture Company of Georgia (which may still be going in some form?) offered complete rooms in 1938 for US$49, on tick – that’s about US$850 today. I’m not sure if that’s a bargain or not but, honestly, it’s better than IKEA. Zoom in on the US$49 bedroom, top right, and it looks like it might be a tad Chinoiserie too – check that bed marquetry…..
