Antique Wallpaper

At last, more fabulous genuine antique wallpaper from the States has arrived in and have just been  added to KT Miniatures website.  These additional 12  designs range from early 1900's to 1940's and are now available to buy.

These papers are suitable for antique & vintage dolls houses and a fantastic solution to your mini decorating, if your old dolls house does not retain any original decoration. Designs range from both bold and exquisitely dainty floral to geometric and stripes. Followers to  KT Miniatures website will notice that the wallpaper in this new batch is more expensive than any previous papers, however due to increased costs from supplier, currency fluctuations, postal costs and finally customs/excise costs these increases were inevitable.


Please note that any wallpaper ordered will be despatched in a long postal tube/box. Each pattern will be sold by the metre which should be adequate for a normal sized 1/12th scale dolls house. However if you wish to purchase more than a metre of a specific pattern, please contact me before ordering,  as several of the patterns are not full rolls and are limited.

I strongly recommend that you use ordinary household wallpaper paste to fix then handle like any normal wallpaper, smoothing out air bubbles from the centre, outwards (although, it is extremely fragile and needs to be handled very carefully otherwise it will tear easily). But it is well worth the perserverance and am sure you will be pleased with the results!

Using antique wallpaper to decorate your antique and vintage dolls houses can enhance and even add value to your old treasure. I have used it here in my old favourite 1930s Hobbies dolls house......personally I was chuffed to bits with the result.
