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 Wooden Sideboard – Possibly Twiggs? @ £8.50

Here is a varnished wooden sideboard with two opening drawers and two opening doors. It has an attractive and useful upper shelf. Handles are tiny nails. On the back there is paper/glue residue which is reminiscent of a lot of the Twiggs furniture, as they were so often fixed to the display boxes on purchase? However I have not seen one quite like this specific design before. It is in a good played with condition, some wear. Measures 3 3/4″ long x 1 1/4″ deep x 2 3/4″ high.

Vintage German Style Multi Coloured Table & Three Chairs With Animal Motifs @ £21.00 

I absolutely adore this set and I have been in two minds whether to keep or not, but it is the same old story…I have nowhere to put them, so go they must. I simply cannot just put them in a box for a rainy day:) To be honest, I have never seen any quite like these before. I cannot make up my mind if they were made in the early 1900s or  made later to look like the German style of that time? However, even if they are of the latter, there does appear to be some age to them, so could be classified as vintage at least.

The set comprises of a table and three chairs, painted in a bold green, terracotta red and blue colour, with a cockerel motif on the table top, and a rabbit, duck and squirrel motif on the seats. The  table and chairs have very distinctive cut out slits as side panels  and the legs of the table and chairs are tri-angular in shape. Beautifully made! Underneath one of the chairs is the name Barbara written in pencil. If you are looking for something different for your dolls house, then these could be for you. All pieces are in a good played with condition, some wear. Table measures 2 1/8″ wide x 2 1/8″ long x 2 3/4″ high. Each chair measures 1 1/2″ sitting height x 2 3/4″ back height x 1 1/2″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep.

c1920s/30s German Armchair & Sofa @ £16.00 

Here is wooden German sofa and armchair, with original red and cream cotton upholstery. Very Art Deco in style. The wooden frame has a wood grain veneer type finish on the front exterior. On the back is some paper residue, possibly from where they were glued to original display packaging when first purchased? 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. The far left hand back edge of the sofa looks like it had once had a split but which has been glued back together. However, considering their age, overall these are in a relatively good played with condition.Nice set. Sofa measures 4 3/4″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 1″ sitting height x 2 3/4″ back height.  Armchair measures 2 3/4″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 1″ sitting height x 2 3/4″ back height.

Single c1920s/30s German Dining Chair @ £8.50

Here is a 1920s/30s German single dark stained dining chair, marked GERMANY underneath. This is lovely and so evocative of the style of furniture that was around in the 1920s/30s. It is in a relatively good played with condition, some scuffing, particularly to the front left leg. It has also been re-glued as there is evidence of some excess glue on the back join. Could be used in a variety of rooms and quite a useful little chair. Measures 1 1/4″ sitting height x 3 3/8″ back height x 1 3/4″ wide x 1 1/4″ depth.

Vintage Fireplace With Brick Paper @ £15.00

Here is a delightful wooden fireplace in original old brick paper with green painted fender plus painted arched edge, which gives it added charm. I have no idea of origin or age, but think it is probably dated from between 1930s and 1950s. I am wondering if it has been commercially made, although I do not know who by?  Intriguingly the backing is of some sort of black painted card or thick paper, which has crinkled beautifully over the years to give it quite an effective finish. Overall this is in a good played with condition, some tiny tears to the brick paper, mainly on the left corner of the hearty plus on the left fireplace edge. The mantelpiece is a varnished piece of wood.Measures 3 7/8″ wide x  3 1/3″ high x 1″ deep. Lovely item!

Vintage Green Painted Fireplace @ £11.50

Here is another very sweet vintage wooden fireplace painted in a glorious green finish. Age and origin unknown, but it has been well made. The fender appears to have been made by some sort of painted card, but the arched fireplace hole has been beautifully created so am wondering if this has been commercially produced. Overall it is in a good played with condition, some wear to the paintwork. Measures 3 1/8″ wide x 2 1/8″ high x 1″ at its deepest point ie. the hearth.

Blue Wooden Vintage Gas/Electric Fire @ £10.50

This is a simple but utterly charming  wooden gas or electric fire. I think it is meant to stand in the hearth of a fireplace? There is a squared piece that has cleverly been scored and left unpainted in the top half to represent the bars or heating element, the rest has been painted an attractive deep navy blue.I have no idea of its origin or age, could have been homemade but also may have been commercially produced? In a good played with condition. Measures 2 1/2″ high x 1 3/4″ wide x 3/8″ deep.

Here is a lovely and very pretty pale blue and dark speckled blue plaster fireplace, with lit coal fire detail. Maker and exact age unknown…very similar to the Barton fireplaces but this particular design was not known to have been sold by Barton. There is a small nibble  to the far left edge of the mantelpiece as seen in the photos, plus one or two weeny nibbles to the mantelpiece edges but nothing major, and I would describe this as being in a good played with condition. Measures 2 7/8″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep x 2 5/8″ high. Would suit a 1930s – 1960s style  dolls house. Nice item.

There is a cleverly painted wooden lit fire effect on a triangular piece of wood, and it works really well.

Vintage Wooden Fire Screen @ £14.50

I love this, it is so unusual and quite striking. I have no idea of date or origin. There are three wooden sections , each with a carved beveled panel . It comes in a dark varnished finish and on the back there are two strips of leather fixed right across to act as hinges. The leather strips have been rather clumsily made, and have been fixed a little tight restricting the way that the two side panels splay out. I find this quite surprising since someone has gone to so much trouble to beautifully carve the wood. So I am wondering if the leather hinges are later additions? Although this fire screen stands nicely, it could benefit with new looser pieces of leather.  Overall in a good played with condition. Measures 2 1/4″ high x 3 1/8″ overall width. Lovely item!

Vintage Round Wooden Coffee Table @ £5.50

Here is a useful white painted wooden coffee table. Age and origin unknown but came with an assortment of furniture from the 1930s – 1950s, so I have to assume this is of the same era. It has a price of 3d written underneath. As you can see, this is in a well played with condition, much wear and the legs have been fixed in a realigned position. But nevertheless this could be useful to someone. With a cloth over the top or nice vintage plant or vase, would finish this off nicely.  Measures 2″ high x 2 5/8″ diameter.

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.

Old German Sideboard Large Scale (some damage to hinge) @ £7.50

Here is a large scale wooden German sideboard, with lovely two tone finish on the front exterior. The two doors at the front open and the feet are a curious curved shape. 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 @ £21.00

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.
