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.


Vintage Kensalcraft Dressing Table (replacement back of mirror) @ £4.90

Here is a rather nice wooden Kensalcraft dressing table (late 1940s-1950s?), with swivel round mirror. Please note that a previous owner for some reason, has added pieces of balsa wood to the back of the mirror – presumably to reinforce it where maybe backing has split? Other than that, this is in a reasonably good played with condition – the balsa wood addition cannot be seen from the front, but the price has been reduced accordingly – so a bargain for someone. Measures 4 1/2″ high x 3 3/4″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep.

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

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.

Antique Art Nouveau Wardrobe @ £39.50 SOLD

This is stunning and the photos just do not do it justice. Here is an antique wooden wardrobe,  believed to be of German origin circa late 1800s/early 1900s, with an upper cupboard and lower opening drawer, each with the original teeny metal decorative handles. As you can see the door and drawer front have a very pretty stencilled floral design, so very Art Nouveau! There are additional storage areas either side of the cupboard plus two upper shelves. The stencilled decorative wooden top piece has obviously had some weeny damage in the past and has been glued, but hardly noticeable and certainly not detrimental to this piece. This is in an overall good played with condition.  Measures 4″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 6″ high.

Antique Six Piece Wash Stand Set @ £18.00

Here is a delightful antique white china wash set for an old washstand, with gold trim. There are six pieces in total which includes tall bottle, two round bowls, one long rectangular dish and two small rectangular dishes (one with open slats). All are in a reasonably good played with condition, some wear plus one or two nibbles, but nothing major. This set came with a collection of old dolls house items ranging form the mid 1800s right through to the early 1900s, so am assuming this is from the same era. To give you an indication of size, the bottle measures 2″ high, the long rectangular dish measures 2 1/4″ long, the two round bowls have a diamter of 1 1/8″ plus the two smaller rectangular dishes measure 1 1/2″ x 1 1/8″, so quite large in scale.

c1970s German Vero Wardrobe @ £9.50

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

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 @ £4.00

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 Wardrobe @ £9.95 RESERVED

Here is an old wooden German wardrobe that has two opening doors, possibly pre-war? The left door is attached to an attractive central multi toned wooden panel, and is a nice touch. Both original metal tack handles are present. The feet  have had some remedial work and there is glue residue. One of the back feet is  ever so slightly different from the other three but not noticeable. There is a slight crack in the back panel which is not too detrimental to the whole item, but on the whole this is in a relatively good played with condition.  This is a nice attractive piece. Measures just over 5″ at widest point x 1 3/4″ at deepest point x 4 7/8″ high. This came with the old beds and bedside cupboards listed below…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.


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.

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.

c1920s/30s Chunky Wooden Chest Of Drawers @ £10.95

This is a very useful solid wooden and quite chunky chest of drawers, with three long opening drawers with tiny screw handles. Came with a group of handmade items all from the 1920s/30s so believe this to be of the same era. In a good played with condition, considerably more wear to the top part of the chest of drawers where there is some scuffing. Please note that is is quite a chunky piece of furniture and the scale is slightly exaggerated than a normal 1/12th scale. Measures 5″ wide x 2 1/8″ deep x just over 3″ high.
