All outstanding projects have now been completed, accounts and that dreaded tax form dealt with, no more dashing up and down the country (this week anyway) so at looooong last I have been able to begin listing vintage items to KT Miniatures website. It has been a while....
First up today, I have embarked on listing a delightful collection of vintage Barton pieces that all came together. Most are from the 1950s/1960s era. In fact some of these pieces appear so immaculate that you'd think that they'd never been played with....however I do know from the prevous owner all had been much loved and handed down a generation. Some of my personal favourites from the collection have been highlighted below.
|Lovely vintage Barton bathroom stool with a delightful mottled painted effect seat, plus a cork bath mat that is in immaculate condition.|
|Then there is this wonderful Barton radiogram.|
|When you lift up the lid it reveals all the original paper controls, the movable record deck arm, etc. How fantastic is this?!|
|This bookcase is absolutely gorgeous...all made of wood including the brightly coloured mock books. Again, this is in immaculate condition.|
Finally, here are two of the more unusual pieces for the kitchen that don't normally come along that often. There is a tall kitchen cupboard for all your miniature cleaning products. This comes complete with a well used broom. Plus there is a grey and white speckled boiler........very nice indeed.
All these items can be found on the 1/16th Scale Vintage Barton Section. Please click on the following link to view:
I am now going to concentrate my efforts on listing as many antique/vintage items as I can over the next few days....including a couple of dolls houses. There is now a backlog of stock just waiting in boxes (and more boxes) to be put up for sale! Some of which will be highlighted on here....so watch this space folks!
