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 Metal Bed @ £16.00

Here is a useful antique German metal bed, believed to originate from the early 1900s. It seems to have been over painted in a dark green paint – you can see the original white paint underneath in patches. The metal headboard and footboard have a swirling design. This is in a relatively well  played with condition, there appears to be an ever so slight warp as the end right foot just slightly lifts off the ground. Plus apart from the over painting, it looks like some fabric cover has at one time been glued to the right side panel, as there is a little fluffy residue. Nevertheless, this could be useful for an antique dolls house. Measures 4″ long x just under 2 1/2″ wide  x 3″ at highest point.

Suitable for either 1/16th or 1/12th scale dolls house


Early 1900s German “Nothing Too Good For Me” Chamber Pot With Original Toilet Roll @ £15.00

What a fabulous novelty item this is….guaranteed to make you smile!  I don’t know about anyone else, but I have never seen one with an accompanying toilet roll before.  This china chamber pot with gold rim, has the words “Nothing Too Good For Me” in gold letters around the side. Underneath it is marked MADE IN GERMANY. The tightly rolled paper fits snugly into the pot.  Measures 3/4″ high x 7/8″ in diameter.

Antique German Metal Painted Jug & Bowl @ £13.00 RESERVED

This is believed to be a c1920s/30s German painted metal jug and bowl. The cream paint is considerably worn in places, particularly the bowl so I think we can describe this as being in a well played with condition. Would look great on an old washstand. Jug measures 1″ high and bowl measures 1 1/4″ in diameter.

Vintage Three Piece Bedroom Suite @ £18.00

This is an unusual dark blue painted wooden three piece bedroom set, exact age unknown but came with some 1930s – early 1950s dolls house items so am assuming this is of the same era.  Origin unknown, it may be handmade but could also have been commercially made – has been nicely done.  This set consists of a blue painted wardrobe with opening door, single bed with blue painted head and foot boards. A blue painted wooden dressing table with a non opening imitation door with nail handles  and a fixed mirror. The mirror is heavily tarnished as you can see and at one time, I suspect this was fixed as a swivel mirror, as there is a tiny hole either side of the back uprights. Nowadays the mirror is fixed. Overall this is in a good played with condition, some wear and marks, plus of course the mirror is tarnished as mentioned above. Wardrobe measures 3 1/4″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 5″ high. Bed measures 5 1/2″ long x 2 3/4″ deep x 1 1/4″ mattress height x 2 1/2″ at highest point ie. headboard. Dressing table measures 2 3/4″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 4″ high.

Vintage Homemade Wooden Dressing Table With Swivel Mirror @ £9.50 SOLD

This is quite a charming and substantial wooden dressing table with swivel mirror.  Although origin and maker is unknown, I am quite certain that this has been homemade and is quite old, around c1930s-1950s. It came with  a wardobe (which has now been sold) and even though the stain on this dressing table is not quite so dark in shade, am quite sure this has been made by the same person.  It has been given a more of a  golden stained finish and is in a good played with condition. The drawer fronts are for  illusion only and do not open.  Not sure what scale we can call this, it is neither one or the other, and is actually quite chunky in dimensions, particularly depth. So please take note of the dimensions and ensure it will fit in your dolls house before ordering. Would probably suit an old dolls house where scale does not matter. It measures 2 1/2″ deep x 3 1/2″ wide x 5 1/2″ to top of mirror.

c1920s/30s Japanese Bedroom Cupboard With Mirror @ £16.50 SOLD

Here is a rather lovely wooden bedroom cupboard with a fixed mirror. The pretty inlaid patterned door opens to reveal one large inside shelf. Overall this is in a reasonably good played with condition, just a little  wear most notably around the door edges where there are some weeny chips in the wood. Nice item and it is refreshing to have the mirror, this is so often lost. Measures 4 7/8″ high x 2″ deep x 2 5/8″ wide.

c1970s German Vero Wardrobe @ £9.50 SOLD

Here is a delightful wooden wardrobe made by the German company Vero, in the 1970s. It has a golden varnished finish along with a delightful red and green stencilled design on the two opening doors. Above the doors there is a decorative plinth with stencilled lettering/numbering which I think says – 18 RL 39. Not sure of the significance of this…does anyone else? In a completely unusued condition, never been played with. Measures 6″ high x 4 1/8″ at widest point x 1 3/4″ at deepest point. Nice item.

c1970s German Vero Four Poster Bed @ £10.50 SOLD

Here is a delightful wooden four poster bed made by the German company Vero, in the 1970s. It has a golden varnished finish along with a delightful red and green stencilled design onthe headboard and footboard. There are two cut pieces of the original red and white gingham which would have come with this, one presumably represents a pillow and the other a sheet. However on each cut underside there is residue of a foam strip which has crumbled away over the years. Also, on the roof of the bed there is a slightly discoloured rectangular patch where presumably a lable or something had been once fixed? Otherwise I would say that this appears to be in an unplayed with condition. Measures 5 1/4″ long x 3 1/2″ wide x 5″ high.

Antique German Wooden Dressing Table @ £42.00

This is an elegant dark varnished wooden dressing table, believed to be German and probably originating from around c1910. It has two large opening drawers but the two small drawer fronts are for effect only and do not open. There is an upper shelf which would look fabulous adorned with tiny toiletry items. The mirror is in good condition and the top of the dressing table has a nice curved arched top. Very nice indeed. This is in a good played with condition, some wear to the exterior – most noticeable there is a scratch on the wood just under the mirror frame – above the top shelf. However, as this is around 100 years old I think it can be forgiven. Lovely item. Measures 3 1/2″ wide x 2 1/4″ at deepest point x 5 1/2″ back height x 2 1/2″ to dressing table worktop height.

c1920s-1930s German Large Scale Dressing Table @ £29.95

Here is a quite unusual wooden dressing table, believed to be German and is quite distinctive in style. Am assuming this originates from the 1920s- 1930s, as it has an Art Deco air about it. The two large metal drawer handles are lovely and quite decorative. The middle drawer handles are the more usually seen tacks.  All three drawers open. The mirror is fixed and relatively good condition,  but please note that the top of the wooden frame around the mirror is a little askew. I can only think that this mirror was a replacement but due to it being a little on the large side for the original frame, the previous owner decided to stick it on as best they could. I think it gives this a rather lovely quirky finish to this and just makes me smile! The feet are round pieces of wooden dowelling. This is bigger than the usual 1/12th scale and am not sure what scale we can call this as scale is a little all over the place with this. It measures 5 1/2″ high x 1 3/4″ dressing table worktop height x 5 1/2″ wide x 1 5/8″ deep. The middle front drawers and mirror frame has a mottled brown painted finish, and the rest of the dressing table is painted in a white finish. Overall this is in a good played with condition. Lovely item.

Homemade Vintage Bedside Cupboard @ £3.00

Here is a simple homemade wooden bedside cupboard created from a block of wood, cut and carved, then painted in cream gloss paint. It has a door and drawer effect slightly carved into the wood, complete with a tiny tack drawer handle and bent pin/staple door handle. Origin is unknown but it appears to be quite old. Underneath there is a child’s pencil scribble. Overall this is in a well played with condition, some chipping to the paintwork and there is a scrape on the front of the cupboard, but nevertheless this has a certain charm and could be useful to someone. Measures 1 1/4″ wide x 1″ deep x 2″ high.

Old German Set Of Two Beds & Bedside Cupboards @ £10.50

Here is a useful old wooden bed and bedside cupboard German set,  possibly pre-war?The set consists of two wooden single beds, and two bedside cupboards, in  a golden varnish finish. Neither bed is completely perfect, each base appears to slope slightly  upwards from the headboard to the footboard…as seen in the photos. Is barely noticeable, particularly if you are viewing the beds with head and footboards facing you, but if this matters to you, please do not order!  Each cupboard is open backed and has a mock non opening door. There is some wear to the varnished exterior on all pieces, including a scratch on one of the cupboard fronts. The original tack handles are present, albeit one is slightly bent. Each bed measures 5 1/8″ long x 3 1/4″ wide x headboard 2 1/8″ high. Each cupboard measures 2″ high x 1 3/4″ at widest point x 1 1/4″ at deepest point. These came with the old wardobe listed above…but I have deliberately split the set as I am so often asked for separate beds and separate wardrobes.

Possibly suitable for either 1/12th or 1/16th scale – please check the measurements.


c1920s-30s German Tin Washstand @ £25.00

This is a gorgeous tin washstand with upper shelf and mirror, has MADE IN GERMANY printed on the side. The lithograped imagery is delightful – I particularly like the image of a towel hanging a rail on each side! The mirror is showing a little wear but overall, apart form the usual bumps and scrapes to the exterior, this is in a good played with condition.

I am a great fan of vintage tin dolls house furniture and this is really lovely! NB. The depth is a little more exagerated than the normal 1/12th scale washstand, so please take note of the measurements before ordering to ensure, that this will fit your requirements. . Measures 4 1/4″ wide x 2 1/2″ deep x 4 5/8″ high. The washstand worktop is 2 1/4″ high.
