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.
c1920s Metal Nursery Chair @ £15.00
Here is a very old metal nursery chair, probably German origin, from the 1920s. I am not sure if this should have had four wheels but currently only has two? As you can see this is in a heavily worn and extremely rusty condition. It is not often that I would recommend messing with the original paintwork but on this occasion I think it is a necessity! The previous owner thought so too, this belonged to her mother in the 1920s. Measures 1 5/8″ wide x 2 1/2″ deep x 3″ high.

Vintage Large Scale (More Doll Size Rather Than Dolls House Size) Set Of Three Assorted Glass Dolly Feeding Bottles @ £10.50
As you can see, these are vintage toy dolly glass feeding bottles, more like doll size rather than dolls house size. However, for those of you who have an old dolls house where scale does not matter…or perhaps you are an antique doll collector, then these may be of interest to you. This is a set of three assorted glass dolly feeding bottles, two appear to possibly be the same make as they each have corresponding measuring marks on the glass, although one is larger than the other. And each of those two bottles have nibbles around the next entrance, the larger one in particular has a significant nibble. Please see photos. The third bottle has remnants of a red rubber/plastic(?) teat on the end. However overall there do not appear to be any cracks in the main part of any of the bottles. Bottle with teat remnant measures 2 1/2″ long, so too one of the other bottles. The smallest bottle measures 2 1/4″ long. Hopefully these could be useful to someone.

Vintage Kleeware Hard Plastic Cot/Pram Baby Insert @ £4.00 SOLD
This is not marked as such, but this is believed to be a Kleeware plastic insert for some of their prams and cots. It is actually quite charming, with moulded detail of sleeping baby and bedding. Once it is slotted into place inside the pram or cot, it really can be quite effective. It is in a good played with condition. Please take notice of the measurements to see if it would fit your Kleeware cot or pram before ordering. Measures 2 3/8″ long x 1 1/8″ deep

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 SOLD
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.
