English Rose Kitchen sink unit1949 (I admit, I’m starting to make up dates, but you get the drift). Said MD (now I’m even making up people) needed a new kitchen (and events) and set about fashioning one out of aluminium with his bare hands (no he didn’t). He gave it their classic look by introducing the tulip shape to the drawers (it probably wasn’t him) and painted them a variety of kitsch colours. Except that this was the turn of the 50’s and back then they didn’t know it was kitsch.
