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 Wooden German Sideboard @ £14.00

Here is a wooden German vintage sideboard in a dark stained finish. The door has been created to give the illusion that there are two doors, but very much in the German style, this opens just as one large door. There are two tiny nail handles. Overall this is in a good played with condition, some wear to the exterior. Measures 4″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep x 2 7/8″ high to the top of the back plinth.  A useful little item for many old dolls houses and could actually be used in a variety of rooms of the dolls house.

Vintage Red Tubular Metal Dining Table & Three Chairs @ £21.00 SOLD

These are lovely and I have not seen any quite like these before in such strong red painted metal tubing. I do not know if they are c1930s or post war 1950s.  These remind me so much of the ancient kind of chairs we had in our old church hall where I grew up !There are three dining chairs and each chair has a seat and chair back from heavy duty red bias binding type of material. The table top is red painted tin and underneath the red painted tubing has been cleverly bent to create supporting legs. Overall these are in a good played with condition, there is some wear to the paintwork and some staining to the chair material.  Manufacturer and origin unknown. The table measures 4 3/8″ long x 3 3/8″ x 2 1/8″ high. Each chair measures 1 1/2″ wide x 1 3/4″ at deepest point x sitting height 1 1/2″ x back height 3 1/4″.

Vintage Wooden Art Deco Fireplace @ £19.50

Here is a rather lovely old wooden fireplace in an Art Deco style, with a sponge painted speckled paint effect finish. There is a cleverly painted wooden lit fire effect on a triangular piece of wood, and it works really well. I do not definitely know if this is 1930s or 1950s or who he manufacturer is,  but it has a kind of a 1930s “Tiny Toy” feel to it? Overall it is in a good played with condition. Measures  3 3/8″ wide x 1 1/4 deep x 3″ high.

Vintage Wooden Fire Screen @ £19.50

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!

Quite a sweet little thing. In good played with condition, some wear. Measures 3 5/8″ wide x 1 1/4″ deep x 2 7/8″ high.

c1930s German Wooden Hexagonal Table @ £4.50

Here is a useful small wooden German table from the 1930s, with a hexagonal shaped table top that sits on top of a central plinth. Overall this is in a good played with condition, some wear to the table top, as seen in the photo. Could be useful as a dining table in a 1/16th scale dolls house or a small coffee/occasional table in a 1/12th scale dolls house. Measures 3 1/4″ wide x 1 3/4″ high.

Early 1900s Small Scale Metal Fireplace & Fender @ £19.00 SOLD

Here is a very old lovely heavy metal fireplace with embossed decorative detail of grate, etc. There is also has a heavy metal fender. Both items have been given a black painted finish, although over time this has worn in places, plus there is a little rust here and there.  The fireplace itself has two extending feet at the back which enables this to stand freely. The fender particularly is showing heavy wear to the paintwork. Fireplace measures 2 1/4″ at widest point ( mantelpiece) x 1 1/4″ high. Fender measures 2 1/4″ wide x 3/4″ deep.

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.

Vintage Wooden Sideboard @ £14.00

This is a vintage dark stained wooden sideboard, am assuming it was homemade from plans? There is a pencil mark on inside of both doors which are most probably the piece numbers. This has a 1930s-1950s look to it. Both doors open and have tiny screws as handles, and the feet are decorative beads. Now overall this is in a good played with condition, but the front right foot lifts slightly off the floor, as it appears that the nail with the bead has been pushed in further than all the others.   A bit of a fiddle, but the new owner could possibly try pulling the nail out a bit to adjust the height, if possible. Or, as we used to do in our old real life size family home when growing up….you could shove a miniature book underneath perhaps, to even the height out? Measures 5 1/4″ wide x 1 3/4″ deep x 3 1/4″ back height x 3″ sideboard worktop height.

Suitable for slightly larger scale dolls house or possibly even 1/12th scale house

c1930s Attractive Fretwork Wooden Chair @ £9.50 SOLD

This is a lovely dark stained wooden chair with a gorgeous fretwork cut chair back.  It came with a bundle of 1930s dolls house furniture so am assuming this is of the same era. Origin unknown – this could have been commercially made or homemade by a competent woodworker. There is  glue marking on the chair back along the join where the back meets the seat, but other than that, this is in an overall good played with condition. Sitting height 1 1/4″ x back height 3 1/4″ x  at widest point 1 3/4″ x  at deepest point 1 1/2″.

Here is a vintage large scale woven cane chair that has been painted in an attractive dark green. The origin and exact age unknown. This is in a good played with condition. Measures sitting height 1 1/2″ x back height 4″ x base depth 3 3/4″. So quite large in scale.

Two Vintage Blue Wooden Chairs @ £8.95

Here are two rather lovely pale blue wooden chairs. These came with a group of late 1940s/early 1950s dolls house furniture so am assuming these are from the same era. Maker unknown. They are rather elgant looking in shape and could be useful for an old dolls house. They are in a good played with condition, a little worn and some marks. Each chair measurs 2″ sitting height x 4″ back height x 1 1/2″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep. The scale is a bit all over the place with these chairs.

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.

Vintage Chunky Wooden Dining Table @ £5.00

This varnished wooden table I suspect has been homemade. It does not have legs as such but two pieces of curved wood as supports. Have no idea of age or origin, came with a mixed bunch of antique and vintage dolls house items.  It does have a certain charm about it and could be a useful addition to an old dolls house. Overall this is in a good played with condition. Please note that the scale of this item does not conform. Measures 2″ high x 5 3/8″ long x 2 1/2″ wide.

c1950s FGT & Sons Metal Coal Fire Insert @ £16.00 SOLD

This is one of the more unusual FGT items that doesn’t come along quite so often these days. It is a metal interior fire insert with lit coal fire detail, complete with old fashioned green tiled effect. It has been designed to fit up against a fire surround. A simple fire surround (if you don’t have one) could be made from offcuts of wooden beading to fit around this, plus a longer flat piece for the mantel? This fire insert is in a good played with condition, just a little paint loss. Measures 2 1/4″ across the base x 2 3/8″ to top of arch. Lovely item.

Suitable for 1/16th scale and possibly 1/12th scale

Vintage FGT Gas Fire @ £28.00 SOLD

This is a lovely mottled dark brown/ copper/black painted colour, post war gas fire-marked FGT & Sons. It is exactly the same 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.  Measures 2 3/8″ high x 1 1/2″ wide.

Handmade KT Miniatures Replica c1910 German Style Wooden Fireplace @ £32.00

This is a replica of my actual c1910 German fireplace that I have had in my own collection for years and because I had never been able to find another like it but wanted another one…I decided to replicate the original! I was so chuffed to bits with the results that since then,  although extremely time consuming to create, I have made  some more.

This fireplace  is made from a variety of materials, but mainly wood, printed card and paint! It is finished in a dark wood acrylic colour with a polished finish. The tile is a scanned image of original and the hearth also.

Overal dimension – height 3 1/2″ x 3″ width x 1 1/4″ depth.

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.

Two Vintage Large Scale Quirky Chairs @ £4.50

Here is a pair of rather odd and quirky large scale chairs. Previous owner  told me that hese had been handmade in the early 1900s and apparently used to sit in  a German miniature shop for many years. If you are looking for large scale chairs that are a little bit different and fun, then these may be just right for you. The chairbacks each have a fretsaw cut back and  uniquely each have been cut from one block of wood. In a wonderful whacky way, you can see from the photos that the sitting seat parts slope forwards like a slide….haha! Each chair has a front sitting height of 1 1/2″ and a back sitting height (is not often I can say that)  of 1 3/4″. Overall back height of both is 4 1/2″.  Width of one chair is 2 3/8″, whereas the width of other chair is  2 1/4″. The colour is rather interesting….is a kind of hazel colour with a terracotta colour edging all the way around all cut edges, which makes them even more interesting!  They are in a well played with condition.

Scale is all over the place with these so I would say that these would either suit a large scale dolls house or old dolls house where scale does not matter.

Pair Of Early 1900s German Single Chairs @ £10.00

Here is a pair of square shaped early 1900s German wooden chairs with material covered seats and top curved material covered edges. Although these have been quite crudely made, they have a certain charm. In a good played with condition, just a little wear and some minor fabric fraying. Measures 2 3/6″ high x 2 5/6″ deep and wide each.

Antique Glass Fruit Bowl With Handle @ £29.00

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.
