All items on this page are of various scales and include not only genuine antique and vintage items, but also 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.


c1930s Rare “Tiny Toy” Gas Cooker & Original Box @ £45.00 SOLD

This mottled blue painted wooden gas cooker made by Tiny Toy in the 1930s, does not look like it has ever been played with. It comes in its original box, so am assuming this is where it has sat ever since it was made? The cooker is in immaculate condition, with opening door, metal  hob top and metal plate rack. The box has a removable lid. The lid has all kinds of printed information on the top and around the sides. All four corners of the lid have split, presumably caused from the sheer force of having to prise the lid off from the box base, it would have been a snug fit. The box base is in good condition, apart from one slightly split corner.

The lid of the box is fascinating in its own right….there is quite a lot of information. On the top of the lid it says “TINY TOY” SERIES GAS COOKER. LATEST DESIGN SCALE MODEL. Nothing to Hurt Small Children. COMPLETE WITH PLATE RACK, ETC. Handmade in London.

Intriguingly, there are statements printed around the lid sides such as….”The Very Latest Tiny Toy is a Living Plant, A Nurs” (then the corner tape covers the rest of the word). And then on a line underneath it says “TINY TOY” PLANTS Grow in 36 hours. Around another side it says “JOIN THE TINY TOY SOCIETY“. On another side it says BE A DUCKIE AND YOU GET A LOVELY TOY A “DUCKIE” SET. And then on the fourth side, it has the address and invites you to WRITE SEC., 69 St. John St. EC1. Presumably “SEC” refers  to “secretary”. 

Cooker measures 4″ high x 1 7/8″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep. Box measures 4 1/4″ long x 2 3/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ high. This really is a lovely item, I absolutely love it but have no other dolls house to put it in, so go it must.

Antique Wooden Kitchen Dresser @ £26.00 SOLD

I absolutely adore this and bought this with the intention of keeping it but simply cannot fit it into any of my own dolls houses, so go it must. It may have been commercially made or it may have been homemade, but whoever made it, it is lovely! The glorious aged deep varnish has a lovely patina and makes this piece so tactile. I suspect this is at the very least early 1900s, could be older. The wooden back panel and inside of the side panels have been left unvarnished. It has a deep open lower half and two upper shelves with six hanging hooks. Each shelf , including the back of the worktop, has a back ridge so that plates can be stood on display and nicely held in place. This will look absolutely amazing once laden with antique and vintage kitchenware. Overall this is in a relatively good played with condition, there are some knocks and scrapes plus some white marks hidden away on the back of the dresser but I think the wear all adds to its character.  Plus the very top does have a slight lean to the left (only very slight) but just adds to the character and has probably come from age and wood slightly warping.  Measures 7″ at widest point (ie. base) x 2 1/4″ at deepest point (ie. base) x just over 7 1/2″ high. This is quite tall, so please take note of the height of the dresser before purchasing.

Single Antique Wooden Kitchen Chair @ £4.50 SOLD

Here is a random antique wooden chair, possibly around the same age as the above dresser. Nicely made with decorative back struts and unusually, each bottom end of the chair legs has an old nail bashed in. There is some slight warping to the back struts (please see the photos), so this is far from being in perfect condition,  but an old towel or tea towel could easily be thrown over the chair back if necessary.  I just love it and I hope someone somewhere can give this a new home. Measures 3 5/8″ back height x 1 5/8″ sitting height x 2″ width x 1 1/2″ deep.

Large Scale Antique Metal Meat Cover @ £15.00 SOLD

Here is a delightful antique metal meat cover, probably dating from late 1800s to early 1900s. Rather nice indeed. The handle is quite decorative. This is in a relatively good but well played with condition, some knocks and wear but considering age, this truly can be forgiven. This would look super in an old dolls house kitchen. Measures 2 1/4″ long x 1 1/2″ wide x 1 1/4″ high.

Unusual Large Scale Decorative Art Deco Pressed Glass Tray Plus Glass Jug @ £14.50

This is a rather lovely pressed glass tray with a decorative swirling pattern on the main body, plus decorative handles and edges. This is very pretty indeed and the photos may not do it justice. I am surmising that this originates from the 1920s/1930s as it is very much Art Deco in style, but this is only my opinion and it may be a later piece. Maker is unknown. I am including a little pressed glass jug with this too, although I have no idea if they are by the same maker or indeed from the same era. The tray is large in scale. Measures 3″ long x 1 1/2″ wide x 3/8″ high. Jug stands at a height of 1/2″.

Large Scale Vintage Heavy Painted Metal Washboard @ £10.50 SOLD

This  painted metal washboard is delightful and extremely heavy!  Maker and exact age unknown, there is no makers mark that I can see. Am assuming it is pre-war? Interestingly the front has wavy embossed lines to represent the bit where you scrub the clothes, but on the back it has been made to look like a panelled wooden back? The parts that were meant to represent wood have been painted brown. This unusual item is in a solid condition but there is some paint loss. Measures 2 1/2″ long x 1 1/2″ wide, so quite large in scale.

Antique Large Scale Round Wooden Laundry Tub @ £10.50 SOLD

Here is a lovely antique wooden laundry tub, round in size with additional decorative silver painted grooves around the exterior. Each extended side handle has a hole in the middle. The patina of this item is very attractive indeed. It is overall in a well  played with condition, there is a crack from top to bottom by one handle, and another smaller crack around the base but nothing too detrimental – please see photos. Nice useful item for an old dolls house. Measures 2 1/2″ in diameter x 2 1/2″ at highest point (ie. handles).

Antique Red Painted Laundry Tub @ £9.50 SOLD

Here is a very old metal laundry tub, with two side handles and a red painted exterior, possibly by Britains?  This is in a solid condition, refreshing to have both handles present (sometimes found to be snapped off) but as you can see, there is considerable paint loss. Nice item though. Measures 2 5/8″ long from handle to handle x 1 1/2″ overall width x 1″ high.

Here is a set of eight assorted old plates, various eras and all slightly different sizes. Two have a gold stripe near the edge, one has a gold edge, all others are plain white. One or two have nibbles but generally they are in reasonable condition. One has a brown mark on the underside, as seen in photo.  To give indication of size, the largest measures 1 3/4″ in diameter and the smallest measures 1″ in diameter.  A useful set for someone.

Large Scale Vintage Wooden Tray @ £5.50

Antique German Tin Kitchen Range @ £24.00

This was originally up for sale as part of a  kitchen set of a number of pieces, but the table was sold separately with the two chairs, so this range and the tin sink (seen below) are now being offered individually.

This is a very old tin range, believed to be of German origin although there is no makers mark. It comes in a cream painted finish with an edging of green and a black painted opening door. As you can see this is in a heavily aged condition but there is a real charm about this and in the right setting this will look fabulous. The range is slightly larger scale, would suit an antique larger scale miniature kitchen or old dolls house where scale does not matter. Measures 4 1/2″ wide x 3 1/4″ deep x 2 3/4″ high.

This is a very old tin sink consisting of a bowl inlaid into a four legged stand with under shelf. Please note there are no taps.  It is believed to be of German origin. The tin bowl is removable from the stand. As you can see, this is in a well played with condition, with much paint loss, particularly under the stand. But what a fabulous item! Measures  2 1/2″ wide x 2 3/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ high.

Vintage Tin Over Painted Gas Cooker With Opening Door @  @ £18.00

Here is a charming old tin cooker that has been over painted in cream gloss paint. It looks like it was once green as there are hints of green paint underneath, but whether the green was the original colour, am not sure. Exact origin and age of this item is unknown, but judging from the style it could probably be pre-war 1930s or  possibly post war 1950s. The oven door opens and has embossed detail of hinges and handle. There is a crinkled upper plate rack and the hob top is unpainted metal. Overall this is in a good played with condition, some wear to the paintwork. Measures 1 3/4″ at widest point x 1 1/2″ deep x 2 1/2″ high to hob top x 3 3/8″ to top of plate rack.

All original metal tack handles still intact and in completely original condition. The upper left and right side doors are for effect only and do not open.  Overall this is in a good played with condition, there is a tiny splinter of wood missing on the inside lower shelf of the upper cupboard.   A very nice piece, am assuming this is from the 1920s/30s era.  Measures 4 7/8″ wide x 1 7/8″ deep x 5 3/4″ high. Worktop height measures just under 2 3/4″ high.

Vintage “Tudor Rose” Plastic Mangle @ £4.00

Here s a sweet little plastic mangle with rotating handle, believed to have been made by Tudor Rose. This is is a relatively good played with condition, the handle does keep sliding out of the slot (which must have been very frustrating to any child playing with it), plus there is just a hint of warping in the lower sides…nevertheless this is quite a sweet and nostalgic item. Measures 3″ high x 2″ wide x 1 5/8″ deep.

Painted Metal Toaster With Reproduction Toast @ £7.50

This came with some antique and vintage dolls house bits and bobs, but please note that this is not that old but has been painted in a beige colour and aged further with paint to look old (not by me but I suspect another artisan). Plus there are two reproduction pieces of toast protruding from the top (they are glued in), probably made from Fimo or similar. However, this has all been nicely done and could be useful to someone.  Measures 1″ high to top of toast x 1″ long.

Large Scale Antique German Metal Cutlery Basket & 17 Pieces Of Metal Cutlery @ £21.00

This is a delightful metal and blue mesh cutlery basket with 17 pieces of metal cutlery. Every single piece of cutlery is marked GERMANY. There are 6 spoons, 6 forks and 5 knives, therefore one must assume that there is a knife missing. Overall this whole set is in a relatively good played with condition, just a little wear – most notably to the edges of the metal rim and metal dividers of the cutlery basket. To give indication of size, the basket measures 2 1/4″ x 2 1/2″. Knives measure 2 1/4″ long. Forks measures 2 1/8″ long. Spoons measure just under 2 1/4″ long. So they are quite large in scale but would look fabulous in an old dolls house where scale does not matter!

Both are in 1/24th scale and in a good played with condition, a little wear to the paintwork, particularly the table top and edges of chair. There is a round patch of green paint on the seat that looks like it came off but has been glued back on! Very clever. The shade of green is very attractive indeed.
