All items on this page are of various scales and include not only genuine antique and vintage items, but also may include KT Miniatures handmade vintage style miniatures too. For ease I have given measurements and where possible also stated what scale I think the item is. Many old dolls houses do not conform and scale is a mismatch. In this case, my advice would be to forget about scale and simply fill your little abodes with what you like.
Early Givjoy Sink & Toilet @ £19.50
This set came with a set of antique dolls house furniture dating from around the 1920s-1930s, and are believed to have been the earlier version of the Givjoy sink and toilet. As you can see, the sink has wooden and metal taps. The Givjoy sink version without taps (as seen below) is believed to be the slightly later version. This sink has GIVJOY printed underneath the side of the basin. The taps have been made of turned wood with bent metal pieces protruding over the basin. The toilet has a lift up wooden seat that has been stained green on the top side, and has GIVJOY printed around the back. Both are in a good played with condition, some wear and marking but nothing major. Nice items. Sink measures 3 1/8″ to top of taps x 2 1/8″ at widest point x 1 5/8″ at deepest point. Toilet measures just under 1 3/4″ high with lid down x 2″ at deepest point x 1 1/2″ at widest point.

Pretty Vintage Givjoy Sink & Toilet @ £15.00
Here is a very pretty pink china sink and toilet with lift up wooden seat. Each piece is marked GIVJOY and believed to originate from the 1930s-1950s. Both are in relatively good played with condition, some wear and also please note there is a tiny chunk missing from the inside rim of the toilet, as shown in the photo. The manufacturer, as with other makes of dolls house sink at that time, has not given the sink any taps – so you have to use your imagination, as has the little previous owner for many decades! Quite a sweet little set. Sink measures 2 1/8″ high x 2 1/8″ at widest point x 1 3/8″ deep.

Vintage Pink Twiggs Sink, Loo & Stool @ £12.00
Here is a pink painted wooden bathroom sink (no taps), toilet and stool, all believed to have been made by Twiggs. The toilet has a painted nail as a toilet handle and the fixed seat has been painted black, albeit rather worn, The sink does not have any taps and appears never to have had any, so am assuming this was one of Twiggs earlier pieces. Also the stool came with this set and is painted in exactly the same pink paint as the sink and loo, so must also be Twiggs…although it seems more curved in shape than the more usual Twiggs bathroom stools? Overall these little pieces are in a good played with condition, some wear to the paintwork. Sink measures 2 3/8″ high. Loo measures 1 1/4″ sitting height x 2 1/2″ total back height. Stool measures 1 1/8″ high x 1 3/4″ wide x 1″ deep.

Rare Large Scale Antique Miniature Shaving Brush @ £9.00
What a quirky but lovely item this is, and a first for KT Miniatures in 21 years of trading…so I think I can describe it as rare! Here is a shaving brush with real bristles. The cream painted wooden handle has crackles in the paint work and is showing some wear. The real bristles are in a good condition. Now this came with a mixed bunch of antique and vintage dolls house items, so I do not know of its exact origin or age. But let’s just say that it is pretty old and would look fantastic in an old dolls house bathroom or on an old washstand. It is quite large so please take note of the dimension. It measures 1 1/2″ long.
