Sneak Preview Of Just Some Of The Antique & Vintage Mini Treasures That Will Be For Sale At Thame Fair On Saturday!

Well....with just a few days to go until the big Thame Dolls House & Miniatures Fair, I have the wonderful task of pricing and then carefully packing up some rather lovely antique and vintage miniatures in readiness for my stand on Saturday. On the previous past two postings, I've highlighted some of my handmade miniatures to be sold at Thame...so now as promised, here is a snippet of just some of the lovely antique and vintage items I'll also be taking to Thame.
Let's start with the oldest item.....a rather wonderful and rare c1880 Biedermeier Secretaire, complete with opening drawers and a drop down flap that reveals a green papered and mirrored interior!
There will be various c1930s Pit-a-Pat items such as a canteen of cutlery along with cutlery too, a mantel clock and card table. Plus there will be various German chairs of all shapes and sizes, Grecon dolls, bisque dolls, Dol-Toi Dolls, etc.
Rarely does a c1930s Boxed Taylor& Barrett Fireplace Set come along, all completely intact!
Then there is this rare c1920s/30s boxed Japanese Bedroom Set!
I will be bringing several c1920s Elgin chairs, a German sideboard, a c1900s soft metal framed child image, a Tri-ang fireplace and a late c1800s brass table with tilting top.
There will be this delightful c1950s Circle Bakery Stores, complete with tin scales....rarely do these come along.
And finally, there will be various other pieces of furniture such as this very old gateleg table which extends out at both ends, plus a rather lovely early 1900s cane chaise longue.

However, these are only just a few of the many antique and vintage goodies I will be taking to Thame Fair on Saturday...there will be lots more besides! If space allows I hope to have one or two extra boxes for people to rummage through for odds and ends, plus I will take a few of Marion Osbornes books on the day.

Hope you can come!

PS. Shortly I hope to put up on here some photos of the gorgeous c1920s G&J Lines No 74 antique dolls house that will be available for purchase on Saturday...so watch this space!
