Living And Dining Room

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 Artisan Made Carved Cupboard @ £15.00 SOLD

Although there is some age to this, I do not think that it is that old, possibly from the 1990s? However maker is unknown, but this has been made by an artisan. The carved panels to me seem to be very much in the Arts & Crafts style and are quite charming.  Both doors open and there is a useful lower shelf. Something has obviously been stuck to the inside of the cupboard as there is a mound of glue residue inside. Also on the left hand side the front leg clearly has been repaired as there is evidence of  dried glue, plus a tiny  splinter has broken off the right front corner. It measures 3 5/8″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep x 2 1/2″ high. A rather interesting and useful piece.

Unusual c1920s Small Art Deco Sideboard & Matching  Dining Table By Wallach & Co Of Vienna @ £32.00 RESERVED

Special thanks to the kind person who identified these  as being made by Wallach & Co of Vienna. So this is Austrian,  and not Japanese which I had originally thought! You  can see a small blurred photocopy of this whole set, which would have included chairs too, on page 123 of Marion Osborne’s A-Z Of Dollshouses – now sadly out of print. Marion tells us that a continental company called Hyman Brummer,  based in Manchester, was the manufacturer’s sole agent and distributor. CLICK HERE to view a posting on KT Miniatures Journal about these items. 

This sideboard and table came with a larger and more grand sideboard (was sold separately). The  sideboard has two long opening cupboard doors each side plus one central opening drawer and opening cupboard door. There is one longer shelf that runs the entire width plus two tiny shelves either side of a rectangular mirror, and those tiny shelves are supported by metal rods.   During handling, I have noticed that one of the rods on the left side has a tendency to slip out of the hole but you just need to push it back in carefully.  What a fabulous piece of furniture! The table has one singular decorative pedestal, and both the table top and pedestal have been decorated with patterned inlay strip.  There is a tiny split on on one piece of the inlay on top of the table. Both pieces of furniture are in a relatively good played with condition. Judging by old glue residue around the table base, I am surmising that this may have been reglued more than once. The sideboard has a mended split right across the back, plus there is a bit of a crack in the back panel that can be seen underneath the long shelf from the front, but once this is laden with food and china, this could be hidden. What a lovely item! Table measures 2 7/8 wide & deep x 2 1/8″ high. Sideboard measures 4 1/8″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 2″ sideboard worktop height x 4″ back height.

Two Late 1800s/Early 1900s Upholstered German Dining Chairs @ £36.00

Here are two light coloured wooden dining chairs, upholstered in original brown velvet with ornate metal decorative strip along the front edge. These came with a batch of c1880s – early 1900s dolls house furniture, so am assuming these are of the same era.  Certainly the shape of the wooden frame suggests that these could be from that era. Although most probably German, am not sure definitively which maker. Overall these are in a good played with original condition, some wear.  Each chair measures 2 1/8″ wide x 1 3/4″ deep x 3 1/4″ back height x 1 3/4″ sitting height.

c1920s Elgin/Tri-ang Jacobean Fireplace  & Fender SOLD

This is a piece for the serious dolls house collector and rarely comes along in such great condition.

Here is a rather lovely and highly sought after Elgin/Tri-ang Jacobean fireplace and fender, which would have been part of the PF/10  NEW Jacobean Dining Room Suite, which was available around c1922/1923. The main body is made up from dark varnished wood with shaped pillars, half wooden beading and a small mantel shelf plus a large high overmantel shelf. The herringbone printed brick patterned card plus lit fire effect all add to the charm of this old piece. The fire grate is formed from shaped brass, plus it is refreshing to have the original wooden dark stained fender too. Overall this is in a good played with condition, whoever has owned this over the many years have clearly loved it and looked after it. Rarely does this item come along  these days, let alone in such fabulous condition. Measures 5 3/4″ wide x 5 1/2″ high x 1 3/4″ deep to end of fender with fireplace in situ.

1920s/30s German Velvet Upholstered Chaise Longue @ £18.00 SOLD

I absolutely love this but just cannot fit it into any of my old dolls houses, so go it must. This is of German origin from around the 1920s/30s with its  base in original dark stain finish. I am assuming that the velvet upholstery is a replacement as it is in an incredibly good and rather clean condition, just a little wear and fraying around some of the edges. The slightly faded velvet upholstery  is so tactile,  I keep wanting to stroke it! Overall this is in a good played with condition.  The photos do not do this piece justice, it really is lovely and would look fabulous in an old dolls house living/reception room or bedroom. Measures 6 1/8″ long x 2 1/8″ wide x 2″ at highest point.

Early 1900s Schneegas Dining Chair (missing upholstery) @ £10.50

Here we have an early 1900s Schneegas dining chair that is intact apart from the upholstery on the seat. The framework is there for you to  “push in” a piece of relevant fabric around the crevices of the fixed seat pad, which  you can see in the photos. So basically what you see is what you get, in a relatively well played with condition, the top back bar has been reglued, some wear and nibbles. Measures 2″ wide x 1 5/8″ deep x 3 1/2″ back height x 1 3/4″ sitting height. I hope someone out there can breathe new life into this little chair, it deserves to be loved once again.

c1920s/30s German Bureau @ £16.00

Here is a lovely dark varnished wooden bureau  of German origin and believed to date from the 1920s/1930s. It is actually marked FOREIGN on the base. Both lower doors open and the top leaf drops down to represent the writing area. All original metal tack handles are present. This is in an overall good played with condition, there is a little scuffing to the exterior in places.

Antique German Oak Cupboard @ £34.00

This is a delightful solid oak cupboard, believed to be late 1800s/early 1900s and of German origin. The large door opens to reveal  one shelf.  Fixed centrally on the front of the door is an exquisite soft metal decorative motif. There is a mock large drawer detail above, ie. it is non opening and although the two decorative handles present on this piece of furniture are different to each other, I suspect one is original and the second has come from another antique piece of dolls house furniture. The handles are a little tarnished. There is an upper shelf and curved decorative backing piece at the very top. Overall this is in a good played with condition, a little wear but a truly lovely piece. There is a hint of old glue residue at the bottom of the right side panel.  Could be used in a variety of rooms but probably most suitable in a dining or living room. You could be imaginative and have great fun filling the top shelf and upper surface. Measures  just under 6 3/4″ high x 3 5/8″ wide x 2 1/8″ deep.

c1930s Tiny Toy Mottled Painted Wooden Fireplace @ £15.00

Here is a delightful c1930s Tiny Toy fireplace painted in the very distinctive mottled style of Tiny Toy. This wooden fireplace has a brown and cream mottled painted finish. There are remnants of red paper which would have represented flames  in the fireplace. Overall this is in a good played with condition and would make a nice centrepiece in your old dolls house room, it is a glorious colour. Measures  2 3/4″ wide x 1 1/8″ deep x 2 1/4″ high.

Vintage Wooden Dining Table & One Chair @ £7.50

Here is a vintage wooden dining table and one chair, maker and origin unknown but there is definitely some age to these, possibly homemade? The table has two lovely shaped supports underneath and the chair has a fretwork back and frontage. Both pieces are in a reasonably good played with condition, considerable wear to the exterior underneath supports, in fact I am wondering if the discolouration is due to splodges of light gold coloured paint rather than scuffing? The table top  has a dark mark . I also think there is an additional support bar missing underneath the table as there is an unused nail hole on one side. The chair appears to have holding nail holes from when being made, they are not worm holes.  This is a solid pair of pieces of furniture at a bargain price. Table measures 4 3/8″ long x 2 3/4″ deep x 2″ high. Chair sitting height 1 1/2″ high, deep and wide x 3 5/8″ back height.

Chunky Vintage German Sideboard Cupboard With Non Opening Doors/Drawers @ £5.00

Here is a useful German made sideboard/cupboard with non opening doors and drawers. Still has original metal tack handles and mock wooden veneer type frontage. There is an additional short upper shelf.   Not sure if this is  from the 1930s or 1950s, it is quite crudely made but could be useful to someone. Looks like the central drawer panel has been reglued as there is significant glue residue and this is in a well played with condition. Underneath one can see a corner of the rear part of a supporting plinth missing but this is neither here nor there. Measures 6″ wide 1 3/4″ deep x 2 5/8″ to cupboard worktop x 3 1/2″ back height.

Two  Tables, One With Heavy Fringe @ £8.00

Here are two vintage tables, origin and age unknown but quite old! The oval dining table is wooden with a single pedestal support. Probably from the 1930s. The round table would suit more as a coffee table, it has a heavy and rather wild fringe as you can see. This table has one replacement leg, but you can hardly see any of the legs due to the heavy fringe…quite a whacky item! The two tables are in a well played with condition, much wear but are still fun items! I hope someone somewhere can put these to good use. Both of these would be ideal as coffee/occasional tables. Round table measures 3 1/2″ in diameter x 1 1/2″ high. Oval table measures 4 1/2″ long x 3″ deep x 1 3/4″ high.

c1920s/30s Art Deco Black Painted Wooden Dining Table @ £6.00

Here is an unusual painted wooden table very much in the Art Deco style and believed to have been commercially produced in the 1930s, probably German of origin. The table is held up by a central angular support that is constructed in an unusual way, as you can see in the photo.  Looking at the table closely I can see that the table top is not fixed absolutely centrally but has been fixed more to one side and to one end.  Also I suspect that this table did not start out black but has been a previously varnished table that has been painted over, judging by the chips in the paint. Perhaps the person whose job it was to do this had not got their glasses on! Nevertheless, this table has real charm and could be useful to someone . Measures  3 3/4″ long x 3″ wide x 2 1/4″ high.

Pair Of Art Nouveau Wooden Tables (one damaged) @ £6.50

Here is a useful pair of old wooden dining tables in Art Nouveau style and genuinely from the early 1900s, probably German made. The oak table has lovely fretwork shaped legs so Art Nouveau in style but please note that one foot is missing the the other feet plus supporting lower bar has been extensively mended but rather clumsily with some kind of putty. Hence the low price. The black painted shaped table is in a good played with condition, however please notice that the table top has been been fixed slightly over to one side. I do hope that someone can give these two old items a good home. OK,  these are no longer perfect but could be useful to someone.  Oak table measures 3 3/4″long  x 2 1/4″ deep x 2 1/4″ high. Black table measures 3 5/8″ long x 2 1/2″ wide x 2 1/4″ high.

It is exactly the same design as the T&B pre-war version – made from the same mould. In a relatively good played with condition, a little wear to the paintwork, particularly bottom left corner.  Measures 2 3/8″ high x 1 1/2″ wide.

Small Early 1900s Oak Sideboard (missing upper shelf) @ £10.50

Here is a very old German oak sideboard, which has one large opening  lower door and one mock non opening drawer. The original gorgeous decorative soft metal handles are still in place. However, I can vaguely see some residue on the top shelf which seems to suggest there were two supports which possibly held a second upper shelf? Nevertheless, this looks fabulous without and once the upper shelf is laden with wares, this will look rather splendid indeed. Measures 3 1/2″ wide x 1 5/8″ deep x 4 1/8″ high.

This is delightful but simple in construction. Probably homemade. This has been constructed by either the lid or base of a small cardboard box, which has been covered in fabric, with  sides and back made from fabric covered cardboard.  The fabric has been stitched to the box. The fabric is a little grubby but overall this is in a reasonably good played with condition. Measures 3 1/2″ wide x 2 1/4″ deep x 2 1/4″ back height x 1″ sitting height. Nice item.

This is fun set, extremely unusual and large in scale. Believed to be Japanese and all wooden, age unknown but I would say this is vintage. The three legged table is in the shape of a magnificent red apple, with hints of yellow and even a brown stalk! There is a tall coffee pot with fixed lid, teapot and sugar bowl, both with removable lids. Also there are two tea cups and saucers….one teacup is larger than the other. All of these items have a painted floral motif on the side. In a good played with condition, some wear and a little scuffing. To give you an indication of size, the table measures approx. 4 3/4″ diameter x 2 1/2″ high. Coffee pot measures 2 1/2″ high, teapot measures 1 1/4″ high, sugar bowl measures just under 1 1/4″ high.

Here is an old wooden dark stained sideboard with one opening door. The door has an attractive pressed floral embellishment across the top half of the door and retains original metal tack handle. Generally this is in a well played with condition, some marking to the top and considerable scuffing to the right side in particular – so price reflects this. Nevertheless this is an attractive item, not unlike the Elgin/Tri-ang sideboard of the same era. Measures 4 1/2″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 2 7/8″ high.

This is a wonderful old wooden fireplace with a built in overmantel  mirror, the like of which is rarely seen these days! The fire surround and hearth are covered in a delightful original tiled paper instantly recognisable from the 1920s/1930sera. In fact, if you look underneath the hearth you can see the Delft windmill frieze image that would have edged the bottom (top?) of the original sheet of tiled paper – magnificent! The fire has a  large silver painted fretwork grate with crumpled tissue paper to give the illusion of a lit fire! The mantelpiece, fireplace sides and upper backing is in a dark varnished finish. Then of course there is a lovely rectangular mirror above the mantelpiece with an added shaped wooden frame. I am assuming that this has been homemade, possibly from old Handicrafts or Hobbies plans?  It is in a relatively good played with condition, there is some scuffing, marks and slight wear to the paper tiles . Nevertheless, it is still quite charming. Measures 5″ at widest point (hearth) x 2 5/8″ at deepest point  (hearth) x 5 3/8″ high.

Early 1900s German Soft Metal Condiment Rack & One Bottle @ £32.00

Here is a delightful soft metal condiment rack and one glass bottle.  The bottle has the original metal lid with holes in, and the glass sides have a decorative finish. The rack’s attractive tall handle and all four tiny decorative feet are all present and correct. On close inspection I have noticed that one tiny upright side bar has been glued to the square holder, but this repair  has been undertaken very effectively. These soft metal accessories are extremely fragile and are prone to all kinds of damage, so is nice to see this one in such relatively good condition. There should have been a second condiment bottle but appears to be long gone – not surprising as just imagine how a glass bottle would stand up to rigorous handling in young hands! It is amazing this whole piece has survived at all. Lovely item. Measures 1 1/2″ wide x 1 5/8″ high x 5/8″ deep.

There is also some glue residue on the far right side lower edge of the armchair back panel.  Some wear plus fraying of material on edges.

c1930s (?) Antique Art Deco Style  Fireplace With Old Bulb @ £19.50

This old fireplace does remind me of some similar 1930s fireplaces very much with a hint of an Art Deco feel in the design that I have occasionally  seen over the years , but one difference is that I have never seen one of these with a bulb in the grate and a lift up door at the back for a battery to fit in. As I have been trading for 21 years I would say that would make this rather rare?  I am assuming that the little slit above the fire opening was for a metal lever  switch. There was obviously something glued around the bulb at one time as you can see some sort of residue, which I assume was crumpled red cellophane/ tissue paper or some sort of coal detail?  The wooden surround has attractive added embellishments of three green wood strips, which gives this a real Art Deco appearance. This is a delightful and intriguing fireplace. Apart from the points mentioned above, this is in a reasonably good condition, some wear.  Measures 4″ wide x 2 1/4″ at deepest point x 3 1/8″ high.

Overall this has a very Art Deco feel to it and am assuming that this is from the 1930s. Please note that the tiny pin hinge at the top of the left door is exposed  as a tiny splinter has come away, but I have tried it a few times and it seems to stay intact on opening, however the price reflects this and has been reduced accordingly. This is most definitely larger than your ordinary 1/12th scale so please check the measurements before ordering. Measures 5 7/8″ wide x 2 1/4″ deep x 3 3/4″ total back height x 3 1/4″ worktop height.

Antique Glass Fruit Bowl With Handle @ 19.00

Here is a lovely decorative purple antique glass fruit bowl with twisted blue glass handle and original fruit. The fruit are fixed into the bowl (apart from one which has come adrift ) and am not entirely sure what they are made of, but perhaps dried pips of some sort? But each have an outer coloured textured coating which have split and in some cases, have come right away leaving the inner exposed? But this just adds to the character of the piece. The basket itself is in good played with condition. Measures 2 1/4″ high so quite large, therefore would suit antique dolls house where scale does not matter or a large scale dolls house.
