It's botry, ie. buttery as mentioned. I think the items are Bras (brass) and drinke broles, possibly drink bowls?

Have you got any take on the item after sideboard, JenB?

I think it's '...and cheres' (chairs) ?

Item for the Bed and fornitud in the Chamber

I think its forniture. The squiggle at the end isnt d but is a commonly used contraction of the letters er or re.

Yay, I've learned something new today!  I hadn't come across that before.  Forniture it is.   :) :)

I sounded very confident! I hope I was right.

I'm very sorry to have to say this, but it's fornitud.
