Georgiansilver BS: Odd, rare words (80* d) RE: BS: Odd, rare words 02 Jun 18


My uncle had a mahogany cabinet, which to all intents and purposes looked like a bedside cabinet but a bit taller. He called it a 'purdonium' which I realised in later life was the correct name for a coal cabinet, That explained why his cabinet had a metal box inside which pulled out at an angle. Love the word 'Purdonium'
