Update Of Linda's 1940s Living Room - 1940s Co-operative

Followers of KT Miniatures Customer Gallery will have already seen the wonderful 1940s Co-operative with living quarters above, made by Linda Holmes from Dorset (UK) quite some time ago now.  Her mum worked in the Hull Co-operative before and after the war, so was the inspiration behind this creation.

Linda has emailed me a wonderful updated photograph of her wartime living room above the shop with some new additions. I think you will agree that this is exquisite.

Linda tells us...."The Lady leaving the room has a shorter skirt (rationing you know) and now has drawn on stocking seams (no silk stockings from a friendly yank for her), she has a small belt on the back of her jacket which makes it look a bit more dressy (she thinks). She has now remembered to take her gas mask with her too."

 To see Linda's utterly inspiring 1940s Co-operative in its entirety including "The Tart's Bedroom" (lol), click on the following:

Unusual c1930s Coal Scuttle With George V Coin....Plus A Wobbly Elgin Table!

I love weird and wonderfully whacky things....
Particularly weird and wonderfully whacky miniature things!! At first glance, this looks like a relatively ordinary brass coal scuttle.........turn it round then you see it is a bit unusual!
Yep, at one end a King George V coin, albeit a little on the tarnished side, has been incorporated. So, this is a bit more interesting than your common and garden coal scuttle and a bit more valuable too. It even has a movable handle........nice.....very nice!
Then there is rather lovely unmarked c1920s Elgin first glance you think wow.....but on close inspection it is a bit different.

Yep folks....this is a beautiful Elgin table with a noticeable warp at one end. So......this is being offered at half the normal retail price....a bargain and an opportunity for someone to grab a piece of Elgin that just does not come along very often. I personally would be tempted to shove a miniature book (or two) under the leg....wobble sorted!

Both these items can be found on
