Finally I was actually able to list some wonderful antique and vintage treasures to KT Miniatures website yesterday....after weeks and weeks away from my desk! (Many thanks for your messages re: Mr KT - he is back home again, rather poorly but still smiling). Even though one or two of the old treasures were snapped up immediately, there are still plenty of others on offer.
This teenage Grecon doll who is causing a bit of a riot with old Grandpa Grecon on top of the old piano, has Humpty Dumpty watching them very closely...ha ha!
These two Grecon dolls are now up for sale on the Old Dolls House Dolls Page.
As well as the price, there is this wonderful inscription on the back which you can see above.... makes it so very easy to date..if only every piece of dolls house furniture had a dated inscription!! Must admit, I was curious as to why the inscription said " Mother & Daddy" and not "Mummy & Daddy". "Mother" sounds so formal...don't you think?

This vintage raffia and cane three tiered cake stand intrigues me. Do you think this is maybe Japanese and date from pre WW2? Has anyone seen one quite like this before-I certainly haven't? It would look fabulous laden with vintage plates of food.
Then there is this vintage wooden coal scuttle....the lid lifts up.
It has been well made but no idea of exact date or origin. Am possibly wondering if it has been homemade from some sort of commercial plans? The cake stand and coal scuttle can be found with other items for sale on the Antique & Vintage Living/Dining Room Page.
This c1930s Pit-a-Pat wardrobe has been put up for sale on the Pit-a-Pat Page.
The door opens to reveal to hanging bars, one either side of the recess - complete with a suspended hanging hook on each side.
The tiny red bead handle is original and on the back is the instantly recognsiable red and black paper Pit-a-Pat label.
What is intriguing is that the beading along the top, commonly seen on Pit-a-Pat furniture and indeed their wardrobes, appears to be a little shorter than usual. Normally it spreads right across the top, but in this instance is stops short either side? Did the person making this run short of beading in the factory that day? Or, perhaps was the original piece of beading lost and a previous owner fitted a replacement from another broken piece of Pit-a-Pat furniture?
Am hoping to undertake some more vintage listing to the website next week. Is so good to be back working on KT Miniatures again!
