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.


Unusual Large Scale Aged Old Tin Kitchen Table, Sink, Two Chairs & Range@ £59.00

Here is another first for KT Miniatures – I have handled many a vintage toy kitchen in my time, but this is different again!  If you love the naturally heavily aged painted look, then these could be perfect for you!

This is an utterly fabulous and unusual larger scale tin kitchen set which includes a table with opening drawer, two chairs, a sink consisting of a bowl inlaid into a four legged stand with under shelf (not taps), plus a kitchen range with opening door.  All pieces are in a pretty cream painted finish and as you can see, I think this set can be described as being in a heavily aged and well used condition. But they are utterly wonderful! Maker and age completely unknown, but as the sink has no taps am wondering if this is possibly c1930s? The metal coloured bowl is removable from the stand. The contrasting green handle on the drawer and green trim around the kitchen range edges are delightful. The door of the range opens. Table measures 4″ long x 2 3/4″ deep x 3″ high. Chairs measure 1 5/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ deep x 3 3/4″ back height x 2″ sitting height. Range measures 4 1/2″ wide x 3 1/4″ deep x 2 3/4″ high. Sink measures 2 1/2″ wide x 2 3/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ high.

Late 1940s Large Scale German Kitchen Cupboard, Side Table With Concealed Metal Bowl, Table, Chair &Stool @ £55.00 SOLD

This is a delightful wooden five piece German kitchen set, dating from the late 1940s the previous owner tells me?  The set comes in the original light tan painted finish. There is a wonderful kitchen cupboard with upper sliding glass doors framed with a striking shaped frame, there are two opening lower doors and one opening drawer. Additional to the main painted finish, is a delightful mottled paint and varnished finish on the drawer front and frontage either side of the drawer, plus the lovely shaped frame around the upper sliding glass doors has also been given this mottled finish. The original wooden door cupboard handles are present.  There is as kitchen table, chair and stool. Plus a fabulous side table that initially looks like it has a drawer underneath  but if you pull on the handle,  an under piece swings right out with a concealed metal washing up bowl! The bowl can be removed – presumably so that you can fill it with water and then put it back in place? There is also a lower shelf underneath.  It is in a good played with condition, just a little wear and few scrapes to the paintwork. It really is gorgeous but please note that is a larger scale set so do take note of the measurements.  Cupboard measures  7″ wide x 2 1/2″ deep x 6 5/8″ high. Side table measures 5 1/8″ long x 3 1/8″ deep x 3″ worktop height x 3 1/2″ back height. Table measures 5″ long x 3 3/4″ deep x 2 7/8″ high. Chair measures sitting height 1 3/4″ and stool measures 1 5/8″ high.

c1920s-1930s Holdfast MangleSOLD

Here is a lovely metal mangle with wooden rollers that if you turn the gold handle at the side, they actually work…great fun! This is a very attractive looking item in a green, red and white painted finish. Please note that the little red painted screw detail that should sit at the very top has long snapped off but everything else is completely present and in original condition. I would describe this as being in a relatively good played with condition…I do think that this has given  a lot of pleasure to it’s previous little owner(s) over the decades! On each side panel is the manufacturers name Holdfast  is clearly embossed, which makes this very easy to identify. Measures 4″ high x 3 1/2″ at widest point ie. to end of handle x 2″ deep. Really lovely item!

Tiny Antique Decorative German DishSOLD

Late 1940s/early 1950s DCA Upright Vacuum Cleaner @ £10.50

Here is an instantly recognisble metal DCA upright vacuum cleaner with fabric bag and flex. This is in a generally well played with condition,  a little wear and some fraying to one bottom corner of the fabric bag, plus the little plug is missing off the end of the flex.

Vintage Quirky Homemade Kitchen Dresser @ £7.50 SOLD

Here is what appears to be a homemade kitchen dresser, in a deep burgundy painted finish with white painted worktop. The door opens to unusually show a vertical divider. The upper shelf has also curiously been fixed into a slanting backwards position…I suppose this would help items such as plates to stay on the shelf better?  Interestingly, the  handle looks to be a commercially produced wooden shaped handle…so am wondering if this was based on plans and possibly components from the likes of Hobbies or Handicraft? Age unknown but it is certainly in a well played with condition and well worn in places, particularly the white worktop is heavily aged and a little grubby. Underneath the base it appears from the holes and marks that there must have been some sort of feet or legs fixed to this item? This does have charm and could be useful to someone. Measures 3 1/8″ wide x 2 1/8″ deep x 5″ high.

Vintage Wooden Trolley (Wagon) @ £4.00

This is a simple wooden homemade trolley (or wagon as sometimes called). Believed to have been made from plans found in the Hobbies magazine,  possibly dating between around the 1950s.

Assorted Vintage Plaster Food (8 pieces) @ £44.00 SOLD

Here is a real assortment of vintage plaster food, consisting of a fruit tart on plate, biscuits on large plate with doly effect,  two chocolate type cakes on plate – all believed to be by Kaybot/Kays. There is also a grand little plaster iced cake (could be wedding cake?) with silver base and also a plaster pie…make unknown.  All in a reasonably well played with condition, some nibbles, mainly a loss of colour on one of the chocolate cakes. Finally there is a large scale plaster pie and a large scale cob loaf, maker unknown and these are in a well played with condition, considerable colour loss on the loaf. They are an assortment of scales so I would suggest these would be suitable for an old dolls house where scale does not matter. The largest of them all is the large scale pie which measures 1 1/2″ long x 1″ wide x 5/8″ high. The smallest is the tiny plaster pie which measures 7/8″ long x 5/8″ wide x 3/8″ high. The plate of biscuits has a diameter of 1 1/2″.  These would look fab in a vintage dolls house kitchen or dining room.

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.

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.
