These pieces are highly collectable and coveted, there is a dressing table in the Victorian & Albert museum, they have it listed as follows. This set was produced in the immediate post-war period as part of a matching suite of bedroom furniture.
Similar to two aluminium chairs in the V&A collection W. 4-2010, designed by Ernest Race, it makes use of surplus materials used for the manufacture of military aircraft. This object provides a companion and a contrast to the BA3 chairs; both are British designed and made, and while the Race design would go on to become a design classic, this table and its accompanying suite do not seem to have been a success. The dressing table is a British example of furniture produced using industrial methods developed during wartime, and as such is comparable to the work in plywood of Charles and Ray Eames in the USA, although clearly it is of a more conservative taste.
