Bathroom

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.


Antique Small Scale German Bathroom Set (3 Pieces) @ £32.00

Here is a delightful small scale cream painted wooden bathroom set of a sink, bath and toilet. Believed to be of German origin and these tiny pieces are becoming more difficult to get hold of these days. The toilet has a lift up lid, the sink has a metal pedestal and single tap ( a bent nail).  The bath has been simply made without taps. As there is only one tap on the sink, I would hazard a guess that this is early 1900s. All three items are in a relatively good played with condition., some paint loss. This could be useful to someone with an antique dolls house that is approx. 1/24th scale.  Bath measures 3″ long x 1 1/8″ wide x 3/4″ high. Sink measures 2″ back height x 1 1/4″ wide x 1 1/4″ basin height x 1″ deep. Toilet measures 2 3/4″ high x 1″ sitting height x 7/8″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep.

Antique Tin Blue Bath With Gold Stripes @ £14.00 SOLD

Here is an antique tin bath with a stunning blue exterior with gold stripes. Exact age or origin unknown but am surmising that this is German and around early 1900s – 1920. There is some wear and scratches to both the interior and exterior paintwork, but I think many a little owner in the distant past has had much fun bathing their little dollies in here. Lovely item! Measures 4 3/4″ long x 2″ at widest point x 1 3/4″ at highest point.

Suitable for 1/12th scale dolls house or old dolls house where scale does not matter. 


Small Antique German Tin Bath With Pictorial Exterior @ £14.00 SOLD

Here is a truly delightful little tin bath, clearly stamped with the words MADE IN GERMANY on the exterior foot end. The exterior has a lovely blue lithographed landscape picture along the two long sides and head end, mainly with windmills, boats, sea and sky…absolutely exquisite. The photos do not do this justice. The interior is in a cream finish but extremely worn, just like  the other tin bath higher up this page, I think previous little owners have given many a tiny dolly a bath in here! There is a bit of a dent at one side end of the base but nothing too detrimental. Am guessing that this dates from around the 1920s/30s? Measures 3 1/2″ long x 1 1/2″ at widest point x 3/4″ at highest point. Lovely item!

Suitable for small scale dolls house as bath or larger dolls houses as baby bath. 


Early 1900s German Tin Bath With Back Panel & Mirror @ £39.00

Here is a truly lovely and increasingly hard to find cream tin bath with cream back panel edged in blue plus original mirror with stunning bright red frame. There is a small holder on the back so am assuming that at one time you could fill with water and when the tap was turned,  the water would fill the bath. I have tried this but alas, could not get the water to come out the tap:) This is in a reasonably good played with condition, some paint loss, as you can see in the photos. But a really lovely item and wonderful addition to your old dolls house bathroom. Measures 4  7/8″ at widest point x 3 1/2″ at deepest point x 5″ high.

Rare c1930s Tiny Toy Bathroom  Pedestal Wooden Sink (missing one tap) @ £24.00 SOLD

This is lovely! Ok, it may be missing one of the two taps, but the “Tiny Toy” pedestal sinks from the 1930s rarely come along these days, and being almost 90 years old, could be forgiven! This example comes in a cream and dark blue mottled finish. There is a tiny narrow shelf where the existing wooden tap is fixed at the far right end, could be used for displaying tiny toothbrushes or shaving paraphernalia?  Apart from the missing tap, overall this is in a relatively good played with condition, some wear.  Measures 2 1/8″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 3″ back height x 2 3/8″ sink height.

Possibly suitable for both 1/16th and 1/12th scale dolls house


Antique Metal Bath On Legs Heavily Aged, some Repainting @ £14.00 SOLD

Here is a painted metal bath on legs, probably originating from early 1900s to 1930s, and which if you look carefully to the exterior, will see that once upon a time this used to be a pink painted bath. I think we can say that this particular item really is in a well played with condition to put it mildly!   I suspect many a little doll has had a real bath in this, so much of the paint on the outside as well as the inside has worn away. It looks like at some point in recent times the interior has been given one coat of white paint. However, am sure this could be useful to someone?  I love these old treasures that are genuinely aged like this, is  nice to see something that has been so well used over many decades and given so much pleasure.  Measures 3 5/8″ long x 2″ deep x 2″ high.

Possibly suitable for either 1/16th or 12th scale dolls house


Vintage Tri-ang Wooden Bath @ £29.00

Here is a vintage wooden bath from a pre-war Tri-ang dolls house. It would have come as a fixture in certain old models of Tri-ang dolls house. The side that would have been up against the wall is in original cream paint colour.  At some point it has been has given a further cream gloss painted layer, presumably when it had been in situ, as the over painting is only on the right hand side and end. But generally it is in a great condition so if you have a vintage Tri-ang dolls house missing it’s fixed bath then here is a super opportunity to acquire one.  It has been hollowed out of one single piece of wood…fabulous! The single hole underneath would have been the fixing nail hole to the original dolls house floor and not woodworm! It measures 6 1/8″ long x 2 5/8″ wide x 17/8″ high.

Vintage Givjoy Toilet @ £11.50 RESERVED

Here is a lovely china  toilet with lift up wooden lid. It is marked GIVJOY  on the back and believed to originate from the 1930s-1950s. The wooden varnished lift up has a glorious patina. It is in a good played with condition, some wear. Measures 1 3/4″ high.

Suitable for both 1/12th and possibly 1/16th scale dolls house.


Rare Large Scale Antique Miniature Shaving Brush @ £7.00

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.
