Barrett

*Items placed under this heading also incorporate Taylor & Barrett (T&B) which were manufactured from 1920 to 1941, by Mr Barrett and Mr Taylor. Manufacturing had to cease from 1941 due to World War 2. After the war the partnership was not renewed.

*Mr Barrett and sons started up again as “Barrett & Sons” which traded from 1945 to 1983.

*Mr Taylor, his son and son in law started up again as “F.G. Taylor & Sons” which traded from 1945 to 1980. Any “FGT & Sons” items have been placed within the various relevant rooms found on the Antique & Vintage Section of this website.

*From the 1960s onwards metal components were increasingly replaced by plastic. In 1970 Barretts moved into premises that housed the Barton company at that particular time. From then on Barretts made exclusively for Bartons.


NB. Many of these items could be used in both 1/16th scale, as well as 1/12th scale or in an old dolls house where scale does not matter. Please take note of the measurements if the scale is important to you as they do tend to vary.

c1950s Barrett Metal Gas Cooker SOLD

Here is a really lovely example of a circa 1950s green and cream painted metal gas cooker. With opening door and plate rack still intact, this is in a good played with condition. Previous owner has placed a piece of cardboard inside the bottom of the oven, presumably to cover up the manufacturers hole?  I have left it there and not lifted it out, because actually I think it is a good idea! I have often wondered why these were made with a hole in the bottom. On the back it is marked MADE IN ENGLAND B.  Measures just under 2″ at widest point x 1 1/2″ deep x 3 7/8″ back height x 2 1/4″ hob height.
