I found this amazingly beautiful mahogany / blond 1952 bedroom set the other day on CL. The asking price for the whole set is $850...a little steep for my wallet, but still a beautiful piece of eye candy!
Here is some information from the seller:
"VINTAGE 1952 MAHOGANY/BLOND BEDROOM SET - 7 PIECES
made by AMERICAN OF MARTINSVILLE & MAHOGANY ASSOCIATION INC. OF CHICAGO.
this vintage bedroom set is in very very good condition....
comes with: bed, headboard, 2 side stands, highboy dresser, mirror, vanity, vanity stool
very nice vintage blond mahogany bedroom set and in super great condition, have to see to appreciate"
I had to make a couple of spacing corrections in the above quote, and correct the spelling of "blond" but the rest is word for word. Just a note to all of you who might put ads up on CL: CHECK YOUR GRAMMAR! ALL CAPS IS SHOUTING and rude. If you want to sell your item, check what you have written in the ad...I am much more likely to buy from someone that sounds intelligent in their ad, or at least took the time to make it sound decent. ("super great condition"?)
Okay, stepping off my soap box now...
2 more pictures for you to drool over:
Oh, one more tip...when you sell something, please clean all the extra personal items off before taking the picture...I want to see the item, not all the "extras" that you didn't clean up first. I will have to say that I like that blue bedspread with the blond wood.
