Unusual Old Large Scale Tin Kitchen, Including Range, Sink, Table & Chairs.

Here is another first for KT Miniatures – I have handled many a vintage toy kitchen in my time, but this is different again!  If you love the heavily aged painted look, then this set could be perfect for you! At the time of writing this blog it can be found for sale on KT Miniatures

The maker and date is unknown, but possibly c1930s, judging by the style and colouring? In total, this set includes a table, two chairs, a sink, plus a kitchen range. 

The table is in a cream painted finish but as you can see, heavily aged and a little rusty...fabulous! It is proof that this table along with the rest of the kitchen has been well played with, which is a lovely thought indeed. I often wonder if these old miniature treasures could talk...what tales they could tell!

The drawer opens right out via a green painted handle. Table measures 4″ long x 2 3/4″ deep x 3″ high.
The two tin chairs are also not just aged but a tad rusty too. Each chair measures 1 5/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ deep x 3 3/4″ back height x 2″ sitting height. 
The sink is quite intriguing. 
There are no taps, just a metal bowl (removable) that is inserted into a four legged tin stand with a lower shelf. This whole item also is heavily aged and showing signs of much use. Sink measures 2 1/2″ wide x 2 3/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ high.
The range is also in a cream finish and has an attractive green border around the top edge.

The oven door opens nicely.  Overall the range measures 4 1/2" wide x 3 1/4" deep x 2 3/4" high. 

This whole kitchen set can be found on the Kitchen Page on KT Miniatures website: 

If you do not have a dolls house that you could  fit this wonderful little set into, then why not create a vintage style room setting inside an old tiny cupboard, smokers cabinet or even just a vintage box? Doesn't even have to be a wooden box...could be a large vintage biscuit tin on its side or pretty vintage cardboard box? The larger scale old kitchenware found on the same KT Miniatures Kitchen page would be perfect to use with this set. 
Could be a fun project!
