Some Old Miniature Bits & Bobs!

Over the past couple of days or so, I have been listing various antique and vintage dolls house bits and bobs. Some I have highlighted below...........
This 1950s BCM typewriter has caused a bit of a stir. It was only listed late yesterday but when I switched my computer on this morning, my inbox was full of requests from several people all wanting to order it! Needless to say the lucky person who was first in the inbox is purchasing it....sorry folks for all of you who have been disappointed! It is exquisite though and if you press hard on the buttons the paper holder moves to the left....fantastic. Plus it is in such a wonderful condition...has very little wear to the paintwork. 
This is a bit of fun....a 1950s FGT & Son hen sitting on her nest, all painted pewter. Would look brilliant in the backyard of your vintage dolls house!
Both these items can be found on the following page:

 These early 1900s decorative bedsteads have been much played with and the metal may be a little bent in places but nothing that a sturdy pair of pliers could not straighten if you wished. Personally I love them like this as it gives them additional character!

This 1930s Tri-ang dolls house mirror with drawer may be a little battered and missing it's actual mirror....but it simply does not come along very often. 

The mirror backing still swivels and the drawer can be pulled out but the drawer has lost it's sides. Nevertheless it is being offered at a greatly reduced price and can be found on the following page:

This dark varnished 1930s bookcase is super and comes with six vintage mock books.

 This German pre-war bakelite pencil sharpener in the shape of a wireless is perfect for an old dolls house. I have two currently in that is perfectly intact and this one that has just gone up for sale, that is missing its backplate and the pencil sharpening mechanism.
Therefore it is being offered at a considerably less rate than the other one. These can be found on the following page:

This is just a reminder that tomorrow, Sunday 19th January, the Giveaway Competition on the Dolls Houses Past & Present website will be closing. I am offering a prize of two of my handmade chocolate boxes filled with photos and letters etc.Please note that you need to be a member of the Dolls Houses Past & Present website to enter.

Hello Celia,
I just think of all the miniatures that have passed through your hands! These are just stunning, but the typewriter is fantastic. What treasures!
Big hug,

Hi Giac. Haha....the typewriter is exquisite isn't it. I have had a lot of enquiries concerning it...shame I only had one of them to sell! May have to wait a very long time until one like it in such great condition comes along again. Celia
