FURNISHINGS from the Lytham home of legendary laughmaker Les Dawson could be yours!

For dozen of pieces of furniture from his Islay Road home have gone on sale at a Blackpool showroom after his widow Tracy decided to sell up.

The items – on display at Febland, in Marton, are selling at around a quarter of their original value – but the bed will still set you back an impressive £1,750.

Tracy, who has a daughter, 19-year-old Charlotte, with the late comedian, said: “I’ve had to downsize and the furniture will not fit.

“It’s a wrench to part with it, of course it is, but we just couldn’t fit it in.

“A lot of the pieces were wedding presents but I just can’t keep it.”

The main items of furniture, which are Italian Baroque style, were originally purchased from Febland more than 20 years ago.

The chair Les used to write in, complete with a worn arm, is on sale as part of an ornate three-piece set for £2,750.

An impressive painted wardrobe is priced at £3,250 while the Dawson family’s dining table, complete with six chairs, is on sale for £3,150. There are also paintings, ornaments and clocks as part of the collection.

Tracy added: “It’s beautiful furniture and someone with a bigger house will get some beautiful pieces.

“I’m sure somebody will have some happiness with them. We’ve got no storage in the house so I’m just being realistic.

“I’m sure whoever buys it will be very happy with the furniture.”

The pieces were only moved into part of the Ashworth Road showroom last week, but bosses said there had already been a lot of interest.

The spokesman said: “Somebody saw the collection when we were putting it up and was absolutely amazed how luxurious it was.

“It’s not everyone’s cup of tea because unless they’ve got a few quid in their pocket they won’t want to buy a 7ft Baroque bed.

“You will like it if you like showbiz style furniture, it’s all very impressive.”
