G&J Lines No 71 Dolls House Circa 1915

First of all....I am chuffed to say that our phone line is back up and working.....hurrah! (Re Thursday's post on here).

Antique G&J Lines No 71 Dolls House
I am delighted to announce that I have a gorgeous  and quite rare G&J Lines No 71 dolls house for sale as from now.

It is a large front opening dolls house with two large rooms, original fireplaces, original wallpaper that was found underneath layers of other wallpaper, original flooring paper (rather faded), stairs, interior doors, all glass glazed and metal framed windows intact including a beautiful attic window.
There is a hall with a staircase up to a landing.
A beautiful attic window with original lace curtains is a real feature of this dolls house. Actually, there is no attic but this has cleverly been created to give the illusion that there is one!
This house appeared in a Gammages advert in 1915 and is well over 90 years old so can be forgiven that it's front door is missing and a tiny balcony above the front door is also missing. It is understood that the door would probably have been metal and maybe the same colour as the window frames.

Original wallpapers were found under layers of other wallpaper. There is some residue of other wallpaper still visible but with lots of patience, this can be removed if necessary. Much can be hidden with carefully placed pictures, furniture etc.  Antique lace curtains hanging at the windows would look fantastic and whoever takes this on can have great fun furnishing.
This wonderful dolls house is now up for sale on KT Miniatures website:

Below is a short video made with still photos of this house.

It is a lovely house isn't it. Actually, it has caused a lot of interest and consequently been sold very quickly. So it will embark on a new journey very shortly with a new owner.
