Some More 1930s Pit-a-Pat & Tiny Toy Furniture

Some more lovely pieces of not just Pit-a-Pat dolls house furniture have come along this week but also some 1930s Tiny Toy furniture too.  
This rather nice wooden Pit-a-Pat piano in a black finish,  is complete and in original condition.  The very distinctive gold motif above the lid is extremely attractive.  The two metal feet are still there-sometimes these are missing!
The lid lifts up to reveal the original paper keys.

 If you look carefully on the inside of the lid you can see in gold lettering the words "The Pit A Pat Piano Co. LONDON"
The red and black square Pit-a-Pat paper label is still on the back. This piano is highly sought after and simple does not come along very often.
Then there is this wooden wardrobe. Note the distinctive top beading which is found on many of the Pit-a-Pat items of furniture. 
The door of this wardrobe opens to reveal two hanging rails either side and two sliding hooks.
These and a few more Pit-a-Pat pieces can be found on the following link:

From the same era are one or two Tiny Toy pieces, all with that instantly recognizable painted finish with mottled gold over the top!

Here is a small bookcase, rather splendid in red and gold, along with five old imitation books.
There are four books with pretty colourful covers and one green one that has written on the cover in Pencil in the most teeniest of neat writing....ROBIN HOOD!
This hexagonal Tiny Toy occasional table with lower shelf, is so evocative of the 1930s!
Finally, there is is handsome Tiny Toy bureau, this time in a black and gold finish. The flap drops down to reveal a writing area in a textured red material....maybe leather? Underneath there is a large drawer and a small drawer. Like Pit-a-Pat furniture, the handles are beads. 

These Tiny Toy items also do not come along very often and are real collectors items for those who, like me, are big fans of the 1930s.They can be found on the following page:

All these items above belonged to the original owner, who is now in her 80s and we would very much like these to go to a good home where they can continue to be cherished.

I'm not that familiar with Pit-a-Pat furniture but that piano is wonderful.

Thanks Blanche and 12Create....the piano is rather lovely isn't it. Unsurprisingly it was snapped up very quickly....these Pit-a-Pat and Tiny Toy items just don't come along that often these days. Celia
