In the last post, I showed the TV chair and bookcase from this Triang Spot-On boxed set. I bought this set because I love the cardboard room setting provided, especially the way that the chairs appear to have antimacassars!
The three wing chairs are held in place under semi-circular cut-outs from the cardboard of the back wall. The walls are pink, but the semi-circular pieces over the chairs are white with a pink and blue floral design. They are clearly intended to represent the embroidered doilies placed on the backs of chairs to protect them from hair oil! Isn't that a wonderful detail?
The other features printed on the walls are pretty groovy too - the
mirror looks art deco with those streaks of glass going diagonally across it, and the lampshade looks like it's about to fall off!
There's a door into another room ....
though the walls on this side of the room are otherwise bare.
I showed the front of the box in the last post - here it is again:
Triang very usefully give the scale of these furnishings, 1/16", on the box.
Although the front of the box has a sticker saying "Lounge Ref. No. B", and it's definitely a lounge room in the box, the ends are printed with "Bedsitter Ref. No. L". I wonder if they produced more boxes for bedsitters than they needed?
I love the silhouettes of Spot-On pieces shown here.
Woops! Someone forgot to shut the back of the delivery van!
