All Kinds Of Everything - Yet More Miniature Delights.

Over the past few days I have been listing a variety of wonderful little treasures, some already sold but lots are still available. Normally I am closed for business on a Sunday but for the next three Sundays in December, in the run up to Christmas, I should be around if you need to contact me by phone or email. I have highlighted some of the little miniature delights below!

A.S.Cartwright c1936 "Gwenda" Boxed Cutlery Set
I know this is much bigger than the average size dolls house cutlery set....more like dolls size (cutlery measures 2 1/4" long), but it could suit a dolls house of a larger scale or an old house where scale does not matter.
This was made by A.S. Cartwright Ltd of Birmingham, UK who brought out a new range under the label of "Gwenda" in 1936.  All their boxed packaging from then on contained this recognisable image of a little girl sitting on a chair reading a book...isn't it fabulous?! Incedently both his wife and eldest daughter were called Gwenda.
Can be found on the following page :
German Piano
Tin Coal Box
German Sideboard
German Candelabra
These rather lovely 1930s items are now available on the Antique 1/12th Living & Dining Room Page. Even though they have been placed under the Antique 1/12th section, scale is all over the place, particularly with the German candelabra...but will suit an old dolls house where scale does not matter.
These above can be found on the following page:
1930s Rusco Metal Sink
Antique China Toilet
This incredibly heavy metal sink and large china toilet are now available on the Antique 1/12th Bathroom Page. Although the toilet has lost it's lift up lid, the seat still remains and it is quite different from the usual smaller china toilets that are more commonly found.

And finally....there is this quite rare and intriguing soft metal German umbrella stand plus walking stick. This is gorgeous, even though it has lost much of it's matt painted finish, the intricate metal fretwork is still all there....lovely item. It is also unusual to have a walking stick too.

I hope to do more listing today so do keep checking the website. Please remember to refresh each page in order to view updates.
