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.


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.

Antique German Kitchen Tin Sink @ £19.50

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  tin sink and the tin range (seen above) are now being offered individually.

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.

Small Scale Early 1900s German F.W. Gerlach Soft Metal Mangle & Tub @ £29.00 SOLD

Rarely does this item come along very often these days. This is believed to be a small scale F.W.Gerlach mangle with wash tub, appears in their c1924 catalogue. The frame work is soft metal in a brown painted finish. There are two wooden rollers which actually move when the handle is turned. There is a loose metal washtub which sits on the frame directly underneath the rollers. Please note that the top front rung is missing from the framework but this still stands nicely and the tub sits snugly.  The lower rung has been reglued…this is extremely fragile…however did it survive at all? There is some where to the paintwork. Lovely item! Frame measures 2 7/8″ high x 1″ wide x 1 5/8″ deep.

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.

Here is a delightful old German wooden kitchen cupboard with one large lower opening door, one small central upper opening door with attractive oval cut out windows, backed in thick decorative celluloid blue mock glass. 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.

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!
