Tri-ang Dolls Bungalow "C" c1961-1967

For fans and collectors of Tri-ang and particularly the retro 1960's style houses, I am pleased to announce that coming very shortly to KT Miniatures is the rare Tri-ang Bungalow "C"....the largest of the three versions manufactured by Tri-ang in the 1960's.

It consists of seven rooms and is constructed out of wood, printed board and plastic. Now that I have been  able to inspect this model close up, I can understand why it is so rare. The construction and materials used are decidedly fragile. The cardboard walls particuarly and on my example I have here (that is just about to go up for sale) at least two of the walls have torn above the doorway and will need taping. Plus several of the doors have lost their tiny plastic nibs so are not able to stay in place on their own, however this should not be too much of a problem for the collector as they are all still present and can be fixed into place via gripwax or bluetac.

The board walls are delightfully decorated in bright coloured images. The construction slots into place via wooden grooved fittings and nuts/bolts are including to fix down to base and to each other. The very pretty pastel green wooden roof slots into place.

I love the wooden and plastic pond in the outside area, plus there is a car port and plenty of scope for garden items too.

Hello Celia, I'm a bit slow on the uptake - I've only just realised that you have a blog! Wonderful - it's great to read more about the houses and miniatures you list on your site, and other treasures like the Handicrafts Annual.
Amazingly, photos of this bungalow just went on flickr: - it's in the Nuremberg Toy Museum, and a German dolls house collector has been adding photos from their collection to flickr (including a marvellous 5-room boxed set of Spot-On furniture (the wing chairs have anti-macassars!), plus ads from German toy magazines, etc. And a Dutch collector put a photo of Triang A Bungalow on facebook:!/photo.php?pid=223932&id=1760097974
The internet is a wonderful thing! Look forward to reading your blog now I've discovered it :-)
