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 Woven Cradle @ £9.50 SOLD

This is quite a sweet and very old woven basket cradle. It has an original tiny pink ribbon bow on the top of the canopy and also a second bow at the end of the cradle. There is what looks to be the original tiny pillow – very grubby and could do with a wash plus some additional antique lace simply placed in the bottom. Overall this is in a good played with condition, a little wear. Could be useful for an antique dolls house nursery. This came with some 1800s/early 1900s dolls house items so am assuming that this is of the same era. Measures 3 1/2″ long x 2 1/4″ wide x 3″ at top of canopy.

Suitable for 1/12th scale dolls house or old dolls house where scale does not matter


Rare Antique Soft Filigree Metal Cradle SOLD

This is unusual and delightful. I have never seen or handled one quite like it before so I think I can describe this as being rare. It came with a collection of items dating from the mid 1800s to early 1900s so will be of the same era. The frame is of soft filigree metal and has been lined with blue material.  The underside is lined with brown paper of some kind. Overall this is in a good played with condition,  just some minor loss of gilt colour around the filigree borders. What a wonderful item! Measures 2 3/4″ long x 1 1/4″ at highest point x 1 1/4″ wide.

c1970s German Vero Wooden Cradle @ £6.00 SOLD

Here is a wooden golden varnished cradle made by Vero during the 1970s, with a pretty green and red stencilled design on the two sides and end.

Overall this appears to be in a relatively good and apparently unplayed with condition. Measures just under 3 1/2″ long x 2 1/8″ widest point (at rocker edges) x just under 2 1/2″ high.
