They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them.. ...when you go home, tell them of us and say.. ..For your tomorrow, we gave our today...

How gorgeous are this pair of lovelies, I've just won them both on ebay! Yes, I'm in love and just know that when they have been given a make-over, they will be even more irresistable!
My favourite is the pistachio green cabinet although I really love the pull out enamel counter on the orange larder - maybe I should keep them both. In all seriousness though, this type of cabinet is fab as a laptop workstation / mini office!
These date from the 40's, 50's or 60's I believe and are soooooo hard to get hold of now. I suppose they were just scrapped - they could hardly have been seen as antiques of the future and yet once done up they can fetch a small fortune these days!
