Nursery

All items on this page are of various scales and include not only genuine antique and vintage items, but also 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 Cradle & Bisque Doll @ £29.00

Here is a basketware cradle with unusual turquoise supporting insert around the edges. The old bisque doll head, body and legs are all as one but the arms are jointed. Her moulded facial features and hair have been painted on.  It came with a bunch of antique dolls house items that date between the late 1800s and 1930s, but am assuming it dates from around the 1930s?  There is no makers mark  but believe to be either of Japanese origin or German. Sorry I cannot be more definitive. There is a tiny piece of fabric laid in the base of the cradle plus an attractive square blanket made from braid,  which all came with this. There are two tiny carrying handles on the sides of the cradle. Overall the cradle and doll are in a good played with condition. Doll measures 2 1/2″ high. The cradle measures 3″ long x 1 7/8″ wide x 2″ to highest point. This is a really charming item.

Suitable for 1/12th scale dolls house and possibly 1/16th scale.


Early 1900s Simon & Rivollet Highchair SOLD

Here is a delightful turn of the 20th century French Simon & Rivollet metal highchair. It collapses into a nursery rocker. Isn’t it fabulous! It is in excellent played with condition and could be used in either a 1/24th scale dolls house or perhaps as a “toy dolly highchair” for the 1/12th scale dolls house nursery? When fully erected as a highchair it measures 3″ high x 7/8″ wide x 1 1/4″ depth. Lovely item.

Suitable for 1/24th scale?


Vintage Assorted Plastic Pram, Doll & Tiny Baby Bath @ £10.50

Here is an assorted set of three nursery items, probably all different makers. There is a pink plastic pram with movable wheels and hood.  Also included is a tiny plastic doll in a sitting position and a tiny hard plastic baby bath. These are in a good played with condition.  On the bottom of the pram it is marked MADE IN USA ACME. On the back of the doll I think it says ENG. There is no makers mark on the baby bath. This set could be used in a 1/24th scale dolls house or as tiny dolls in the nursery of a 1/12th scale dolls house. To indicate size, the baby bath measures 2″ long, the doll measures 1 3/8″ high, and the pram measures 2 3/4″ long from hood to tip of fixed handle x 2″ high to top of hood. Nice useful set for someone.

1950s Kleeware Red Plastic Pram & Tiny Doll @ £13.50

Here is a lovely version of a red hard plastic Kleeware pram from the 1950s. It is refreshingly fully intact and original condition with the pram hood, handle and four white rotating plastic wheels. I have seen so many of these prams with cracks and broken bits! It came with a tiny rubber doll (from Barton I think) and homemade pillow so I am including them with the pram. Overall in good played with condition. Measures 3 1/2″ long from tip of handle to far end of pram hood x 1 1/2″ wide x 2 3/4″ high. Nice item.
