Various Antique & Vintage Dolls House Items Have Been Listed This Week...

Over the past few days I have been listing quite a selection of dolls house items to various antique and vintage pages on KT Miniatures website.
Some of these items have already been sold.

In fact, some were snapped up immediately they went up for sale....however, at the time of writing this blog posting, there are still quite a few lovely items for sale.  Such as this rare fold down c1930s Pit-a-Pat card table, for instance.  It still has the original textured green table top and the easily recognisable red Pit-a-Pat paper label underneath. 

Now up for sale is this gorgeous tin c1920s/30s washstand. 
As you can see from the photo above, it is marked MADE IN GERMANY on one of the sides. What I love about this particular piece is the gorgeous lithographed  images such as this towel hanging on the side rail....absolutely delightful. 

And how about something a little different....for those of you with old dolls houses may be able to find a use for this old c1930s lead Britains tree trunk. The patina of this old treasure is delightful.

It is unusual to have the original box up for sale with a fully intact DCMT Crescent c1950s metal cooker. Is good to have both of those metal shelves there too....these are so often lost.

I love this slightly larger scale old metal telephone....the receiver comes off, just like a real phone.
And then there is this curious vintage German light fitting with two fixed lampshades....isn't it lovely!? Not sure whether this is late c1950s or 1960s?
The phone and this lampshade can be found on the following link:

Ok....that is probably the last of the general listing of vintage items for a week or so on KT I will shortly be embarking on a mammoth task of listing over 180 pieces of an entire lifetime collection of antique dolls house glassware that belonged to someone....collected over 50 years! I have promised to find a good home for every single item.....just feast your eyes on these real rare beauties!!
Most of the items range from Victorian to c1930s. Because of the sheer magnitude of this collection, I will be creating a whole new section on my website for these and as soon as the collection goes live, I will let you know on here.

Everything is very nice. What does the light plug into?

KT Miniatures said...

Hi Grandmommy....Many thanks for your comment. The light has a length of wire protruding out of the top, just like the modern day dolls house lighting and would plug into a vintage dolls house lighting system. However, as this is about 40-50 years old at least, I have no idea if this would still work. Is fun though. Celia

I've been lucky enough to see the glassware and it's the most exquisite collection I've ever seen!

Hello Celia,
These are all great items. I am sure they will sell quickly.
Big hug,

Some beautiful glassware Celia, it looks to be a stunning collection. I can`t wait to see it all listed and I am sure there will be a piece of two suitable for my 1940s home.
