The Book Of Tri-ang Dolls' Houses 1919-1971 By Marion Osborne

 Marion Osborne's much anticipated brand new
is now available.
This new definitive Tri-ang book replaces Marion's original Tri-ang book which is out of print.  It comes as a comb bound book, crammed from cover to cover with information including pictures of all 131 dolls house designs made by Tri-ang, which undoubtedly will prove invaluable for many years to come as a source of reference. Also accompanying the book is a computer disk containing over 5,800 photos....useful as an aid in identification and restoration. Marion has long been renowned as a leading light in the vintage dolls house world for her incredible knowledge and passion on old dolls houses and this latest book does not fail to disappoint.

As the title suggests, this book is about the Tri-ang dolls houses only. I understand that Marion has other books in the pipeline tackling G&J Lines and Tri-ang furniture separately under their own individual titles, having amassed a huge amount of information over the years. 

I can highly recommend this as a "must have" for any serious vintage dolls house collector as there is truly nothing else like it on the market anywhere. Already my own copy is well thumbed and have only had it for a couple of days!!! At the moment, you can only obtain your copy from Marion direct. Her contact details are as follows:
Marion Osborne. 29 Attenborough Lane, Chilwell, Nottingham, NG9 5JP.
