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.


Old  German Tin Washstand Overpainted In Cream @ £14.50

Here is an old tin washstand with lower shelf, believed to be of German origin. It  appears to have been  overpainted in cream paint.  The square holes on the back panel suggests a nod to the Art Deco era in design, so probably dates from the 1920s/30s era. These washstands were renowned for their loss of paint and had a tendency to go rusty, and although I did not repaint this myself, I can understand why a previous owner would have  done this. This will look fabulous laden with a vintage jug, bowl and toiletry paraphernalia.  Measures 2 3/4″ at widest point x 1 5/8″ deep x 3 1/2″ back height x 2 3/8″ high  to washstand worktop.

Antique German Cream Painted Washstand @ £49.00

Here is a lovely antique German cream painted chest of drawers.  It had been suggested to me that this may have been made by Gottschalk but to date I cannot find any definitive evidence to suggest that it was, so the jury is still out on which  German company made this.  It has two opening doors and original metal handles. Each door has a distinctive pressed indented inner panel and border with gold painted detail, all original to this piece. The back panel has a lovely shaped edge and the front edge too,  plus the bottom end of each side panel has been shaped in a distinctive way. This is in a good played with condition. Measures just over 3 3/4″ in width x 1 7/8″ deep x  4 1/4″ back height x 2 3/4″ washstand top height. This is a charming item!

Antique German Cream Painted Chest Of Drawers @ £46.00

Here is a very nice antique German cream painted chest of drawers. It had been suggested to me that this may be by Gottschalk but I cannot definitely say that it is. It has three opening drawers. Each drawer front has its original metal handle, pressed indented border and gold painted decoration. The front edge of the top panel has a nice wavy shape to it and the bottom end of each side panel has been shaped in a distinctive way, all of which adds to its attraction. A price of 1/- can be seen on the back in pencil, which represents one shilling in old currency. There is a little wear to the paintwork and the thin back panel is a little warped, as you can see in the photo. But overall this is in a good played with condition. A very nice old piece indeed. Measures 4 1/4″ wide x 1 7/8″ deep x 3 1/8″ high.

It has the word  FOREIGN embossed on the back. Apart from the tarnished mirror, this is in a good played with condition.

Unusual Vintage Tiny Cupboard @ £6.50 SOLD

This is a curious but fabulous item.  Exact age or origin is unknown and I cannot make up my mind whether it looks like something from the 1930s or post war 1950s? It is made from wood  which has been given a decorative mottled varnished finish, with two mock front drawers and a metal tubing frame.  A lot of work and effort has gone into making this, it is quite charming.  In a good played with condition.

Vintage German Wooden Dressing Table Missing Mirror @ £4.50

Here is a useful wooden German dressing table with mock non opening drawers and original nail handles. Like so many of the old German pieces of furniture with mock doors/drawers, this was made without a back and is completely hollow. On the dressing table top there is a plinth with a 1/16″ groove, where presumably a mirror was once slotted?  Whoever took this on could possibly insert their own replacement mirror or mirror card, to restore it to its former glory, but even without a mirror this is quite charming. Measures 3 1/2″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 2 1/2″ dressing table top height x 3 1/8″ back height.

Four piece c1930s Dinky Dolly Varden Pink Bedroom Set @ £40.00

Here is an increasingly rare set of four pink painted metal pieces from the Dinky Dolly Varden (Meccano Ltd.) bedroom set.  It is very much in the Art Deco design.  The set consists of a cupboard with imitation upper doors which do not open, plus the illusion of double lower drawers  which do open, but only as one drawer. The dressing table is very sweet with original oval tin mirror, two opening drawers – which again like the cupboard, each open as one even though the outer detail gives the illusion of two drawers either side. There is a lower shelf underneath the central dressing table top. There is a stool to match. Well what can I say about the bed, although the basic headboard and footboard are intact, the bed base has suffered greatly from metal fatigue in several places , and there is a gaping hole too. But this could be covered up by perhaps a tiny mattress or bedcover. In fact overall this is in a relatively good played with condition, there is some wear as seen in the photos plus the above mentioned metal fatigue on the bed. Bed measures 3″ long x just under 2″ wide. Cupboard measures 1 1/4″ wide x 1/2″ deep x 1 5/8″ high. height of 1/2″x width 3/4″. Dressing table measures 2″ wide x 7/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ high. Nice set.

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.

c1920s-30s German Tin Washstand @ £22.00

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.
