Thank you very much for your efforts finding good source material to answer my question. I will put it as a freebee on Wiki.
The suite concerned was in the 'best parlour' of my parents house for many years. As such it is in very good condition. It is also quite modern looking and I am sure will serve a good turn for someone else.
Both my parents have now died and the house is being emptied in preparation for installing central heating, new bathroom, new kitchen, a rewire, loft re-insulation and new gutters. It may then be sold or more likely put for rent for at least a few years. Almost all the belongings and other furniture have gone - all to the charity groups of Shelter, St Vincent and AgeUK who have had a bonanza. By signing the appropriate papers those charity groups will also be able to reclaim tax on from the value of sales.
There are a few remaining large items, and this suite is one of them. I am quite happy to give it to anyone who can get use from it.
There is another suite - 3 seater sofa and rocker-recliner chair that is brand new. Cost £900. Was delivered just before Christmas and mum died early January. That leather-look suite obviously has all the right safety labels. It is too good to just give away and likely it will will first go on Wiki "for Sale
" board or can simply stay in the house if it it put for rent.
The final big item is an old (1950s) wood veneer bedroom suite of double wardrobe, single wardrobe and dressing table. It shows it's age of course. The best bit on it is the LARGE dressing table mirror that dad had re-silvered about 8 years ago. The small wardrobe is the best of the actual furniture. All or part of it will be free to anyone who wants it (AgeUK saw it and said no interest) - otherwise it will just go to the tip later in May.
Thanks again for your help
