Complete padded cell (nine panels, door, base, gutters, and various other bits) built to fit a room at Farnborough Hospital, made by Pocock Brothers, 235 Southwark Bridge Road, London, England, 1936-1970. Padded with horsehair and coated with a rubberised (presumably waterproof) coating, now flaking. Was found already disassembled and exposed to weather, so it's in much worse condition than it would have been in while in use.
