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 Chunky Green Wooden Armchairs @ £4.50

Here are two useful vintage green painted wooden armchairs, quite chunky in scale. Exact age and origin unknown, probably  homemade. They have been made out of a piece of wood that has a slight curve on it. Overall these are in a reasonably good well played with condition, there is some wear to the green paint and looks like one of the arms which has a crack across has been repaired. Plus a child has written in pencil on one seat the initials AH.  Each chair measures 3 1/2″ at widest point ie. base x 2 1/4″ deep x 2 1/8″ back height x 1″ sitting height. These could be useful to someone with an old house where scale does not matter and at a bargain price too.

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?

Handmade KT Miniatures Replica c1910 German Style Wooden Fireplace @ £38.00

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 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) @ £10.50

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 @ £5.00

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 @ £11.00

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.

cLate 1800s/Early 1900s Brass Fireplace @ £28.00

This is believed to be a late Victorian/circa early 1900s solid brass fireplace. It is in a good well played with condition – just a little tarnishing and one or two minor knocks but nothing too detrimental. The mantlepiece on the left hand side has just begun to work a little loose but once this is in situ, will be be irrelevant. It is a charming piece and would look fantastic in an old dolls house. Measures 5″ at widest point (ie. mantelpiece) x just under 4″ high.

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.
