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.


Antique Decorative Soft Metal German Chair With  Threadbare Silk Seat Pad  SOLD

Here is a lovely soft metal chair with original silk seat pad, believed to be of German origin and from the late 1800s/early 1900s. The chair detail is very ornate and quite lovely, one can still see hints of a gilt colour but much has worn off. The seat pad fits snugly into the seat but as you can see, is practically threadbare…but at least it is still there! The chair itself is in good played with condition. It measures 1 1/2″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 3″ back height x  sitting height of 1 3/4″ to top of the bulky seat pad.

Antique Decorative Soft Metal German Chair With Silk Seat Pad SOLD

Here is a lovely soft metal chair with silk seat pad, believed to be of German origin and from the late 1800s/early 1900s. The chair detail is very ornate and quite lovely, one can still see hints of a gilt colour, although much has worn off. The seat pad is a bit of a mystery? It is ill fitting and perches on the top instead of slotting in, but from hints of the original silk on the identical chair above, the fabric seems identical? So not sure why this one does not fit – very odd? The seat pad is also quite threadbare in places.  The chair itself is in good played with condition. It measures 1 1/2″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 3″ back height x 1 3/4″ to top of the bulky seat pad. Would benefit from a new seat pad.

Here is a delightful German chair from the 1920s/30s era, which still has the original green/cream fabric upholstery. It is very much in the Art Deco style.

Four Unusual Carved Vintage Wooden Armchairs @ £8.50

Maker unknown but previous owner believes they were homemade by family member in the 1950s for his mother.  There are two larger chairs that match and two smaller chairs that kind of match. They are a bit rough and have been naively made, and you can still some chisel marks. But they have clearly been made with love.  And in turn they have been very much loved and played with. A very sweet set of chairs with their own unique character. The larger chairs measure 1 3/8″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 1 1/8″ sitting height x 3″ back height. Each smaller chair measures 1 3/8″ wide and deep x 3/4″ sitting height x 2 1/2″ back height. Hope someone can give these a good home.

Antique Cast Iron Fireplace – Over-painted In White @ £32.00 SOLD

This is an extremely old cast iron dolls house fireplace,that originally would have been painted black, but in later years at some point a previous owner has painted over the surround in white paint. The grate and fender are still in original black colour. Believed to date from around the late Victorian era to around the early 1900s. These do not come along very often so a good opportunity for someone with a smaller scale antique dolls house to acquire a genuine antique fireplace. This is a moulded piece with an all in one grate and fender. Overall this is in a reasonably good and solid condition, some loss of white paint from around the mantelpiece. Measures 2  3/8″ wide x 1 1/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ high. I have placed this fireplace in the living/dining room section but of course, this could be suitable for any room in the dolls house.

Early 1900s Schneegas Dining Chair (missing upholstery) @ £9.50

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

Both lower doors open and the top leaf drops down to represent the writing area. All original metal tack handles are present.

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.

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.

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.

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.

c1920s/30s German Sideboard With Embellished Door @ £17.50

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.

Vintage Wooden Sideboard @ £12.50 

This is a really lovely dark varnished wooden sideboard with two opening doors and two attractive metal handles. This does have a very real Art Deco feel to it so I am surmising this could be from around the 1930s, and possibly commercially produced?  It  is a solid and very charming piece of furniture , in a good played with condition. Measures 4″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep x 2 5/8″ to  highest point.

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.

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.

This is an unusual but simple and 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?

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.

Vintage Round Wooden Coffee Table @ £5.00

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.

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.
