NICE PIECE OF HANDIWORK!

Me and my man went all the way to Wales last
week to pick up a very rare piece of furniture
for only £50!!!
What you see is only one part of a double unit.
It is an English unit called Ladderax, this one
was custom made back in the 1960's for a RAF
(Royal Air Force) family that was stationed in
Singapore at the time.
It's all hand carved and very beautiful, it's got
that Tiki feel we love.
Feels good to know that no one on this planet
has one like this but us.

Underbar! Påminner lite om svenska "string"-hyllan som jag avgudar!
