Charming Vintage Dolls House

This charming dolls house has just gone up for sale on KT Miniatures under the OLD HOUSES FOR SALE section. It  has huge potential and whoever purchases this can have great fun with it. Exact age is unknown and possibly originates from the late 1930s but I feel it is more likely to have been created post war 1940s or early 1950s.
It has obviously been homemade but there are some delightful Art Deco features. Just check out those diamond glass decorative doors! The garage is extremely spacious with side window so just imagine what you could do with that alone.
Inside there are homemade wooden old fashioned fireplaces and in each room some wonderful original bakelite light fittings with paper shades!

Whoever purchases this lovely house could have great fun furnishing it with 1/16th scale furniture. Bargain for it is competitively priced at just £75.00 and would make a great Christmas pressie. Not suitable for children under 14 though. The downstairs fireplace fret is simply made out of cut tin and lethal to little fingers!!!

Hi Rebecca. Yes..I have to agree with you. I think it's the originality that I like about these homemade houses. Plus there are often some lovely unusual touches....such as in this case, the diamond glass windows inserted into the doors & the little panelled window to the side of the front door. The paper shades are sweet too!Celia

Lovely house. The little garage alone is wonderful with those diamond shaped windows. Wish I had room for it!
