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.


Rare Early 1900s German Glass Rack With Three Striped Bottles With Corks @ £95.00 SOLD

This is rare, delicate and simply gorgeous! I have never handled a rack with all three bottles quite like this before. It consists of a glass rack with top handle and three rings. It looks like it has a dark coloured glass  base and the rest of the rack is clear glass. There are three shaped coloured striped bottles, each with a weeny and original cork in the top. Overall this is in excellent played with condition, just minor wear to the colouring of the base.  Rack measures 1 3/4″ high x 1″ diameter of base. Each bottle measures approx. 1 1/4″ to top of cork.

Antique German Soft Metal Fire Tool Rack & Tools @ £65.00 SOLD

Rarely does this kind of soft metal rack come along these days in such super condition and fully intact! Here we have an early 1900s soft metal rack with all three soft metal tools present, which hang from three tiny hooks. The tools consist of a poker, tongs and shovel. This is marked GERMANY underneath. The top of the rack has an attractive embossed design. This is in an excellent played with condition. Lovely item! Measures 2 3/8″ high.

Old  Homemade Grandfather Clock @ £9.50 SOLD

Here is a rather splendid wooden grandfather clock with an old MEDANA watch face that has been cleverly embedded into the main body. Exact origin and age unknown, but am assuming this is homemade, but what a lovely thing. It is in a good played with condition. Measures 5″ high x 1 5/8″ wide x 3/4″ wide.

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.

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


Old German Sideboard @ £16.00

This is rather nice old German wooden sideboard in a dark stain finish, with one upper shelf and one opening door.  The door , although opening as one, has been given exterior detail and two nail handles to give the illusion that there are two doors. This could look fabulous laden with china or glassware.  It is in a good played with condition. Measures 3 7/8″ wide x 5″ high x 1 3/8″ deep.

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.

Unusual Vintage Quirky Two Chair & Stool Set @ £8.95

Here is a quite unusual and quirky wooden chair set, consisting of an occasional chair,  a rocking chair and stool, all in a pale blue paint wash. There is a very distinctive Japanese feel to these, the way the legs have been shaped, so I assume the set originates from Japan. They are believed to date from the 1930s. It is hard to determine the scale of this set as it seems to be a mixture. The occasional chair measures 1 1/2″ sitting height x 1 1/8″ wide x 3 1/4″ back height. The rocking chair measures 1 1/8″ sitting height x 1 1/8″ width x 2 3/4″ back height. The stool measures 1 14″ sitting height x 1 1/8″ wide.

UPDATE: Thank you to the customer who told me that she had a similar set as a child and that there were several pieces of furniture that all slotted together to make a puzzle block, very much like a  very fat jigsaw.

c1950s FGT & Sons Metal Coal Fire Insert @ £16.00

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

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.

Suitable For Both 1/16th Scale & 1/12th Scale Dolls House


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.

Suitable for both 1/12th and 1/16th scale dolls house


Old German Chair & Matching Stool @ £10.95

Here is a delightful white painted wooden chair with attractive checked material upholstery and a matching stool. These are believed to be of German origin from the 1920s -1930s. The chair back has been repaired at some point and has been fixed with a slight lean inwards which gives this a real quirky air to it!  Also underneath there appears to be a hint of two nails which presumably are there to keep the upholstered pad on, plus you can see a pale green colour so am wondering if this has been repainted at some point in its long life, and was in fact originally pale green? The stool also wooden and with the same upholstery, also has a definite set of leaning legs slightly inwards on one side. So I guess we could describe these as being in a good well played with condition. Chair measures sitting height 1 5/8″ x overall back height 3 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ width x 1 3/4″ depth. Stoll has sitting height of 1 3/4″ x 2 1/4″ width x 1 1/2″ depth.  I do hope someone can give these a good home, the photos just doesn’t do them justice.

Old German Sideboard Large Scale (some damage to hinge) @ £8.50

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.

c1930s Vintage Raffia Table @ £13.00

This is believed to be a pre-war little table, with legs wrapped in raffia. The table top has the original 1930s material and is edged in raffia. Underneath there is a kind of lower raffia shelf. This is delightful and quite unusual. In a good played with condition. Measures 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ x 1 5/8″ high.
