Rare Lines Bros Metal Window & Glass @ £19.95 SOLD

Rarely do these Lines Bros windows turn up but I am delighted to say that I have one here which came from a very poor old redundant Lines Bros DH1 dolls house. The frame is gloss painted metal and the original glass pane is present. The frame measures 5 1/4″ x 4″ and the glass measures 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″. The glass would have fitted into a hole in the dolls house carcass of the above measurements and kept in place with the aid of tiny tacks. The frame would then fit over the front and tacked into place in each of the four corners. Overall this is in a good played with condition. Each of the four corners of the frame are slightly curled which occurred when removing the window. But these should flatten out when the window is nailed into place.

Vintage Tri-ang Wooden Fireplace – Missing Mantel Top @ £6.00 SOLD

Here is a vintage wooden Tri-ang fireplace, with original brick paper, lit paper fire image and metal grate. The dark stained wooden surround is present, but as you can see the mantel top is missing. There should be a longer piece of dark stained wood to sit along the top, and there is a glue stain across the lower half of the right side of the surround. However nevertheless this could be useful to someone and the price reflects this…bargain for someone. Measures just ever so slightly wider than 4″ x 3″ high.

Rare Tri-ang c1960s Spot-On Window Components

RARE! c1960s Tri-ang Spot-On Unopened Packet – “No. 1153 Contemporary Small Two Light Window “@ £19.00

This is an extremely rare unopened packet of an all plastic Tri-ang Spot-On Contemporary Small Window, with two panes, neither of which are opening. All seems to be fully intact, including the relevant fixing lugs which I suspect would have easily snapped off during play. So folks….if you have a vintage “A” or “C” Tri-ang Bungalow dolls house missing one of these windows, then here is a fantastic rare opportunity to replace with another one! Also, as these were sold separately by dolls house suppliers during the 1960s, there may be some of you out there who still have in your possession your homemade dolls houses that would have had these windows in too?

In this packet there appears to be two frames and one piece of clear plastic . I assume that the two frames click together via the lugs. As far as I can tell, measuring through the packet plastic, the window frame measures 4 1/8″ wide and 1 3/8″ high.

Tri-ang Internal Door

Tri-ang Door- Green Stain @ £5.00

This is an original door from a Tri-ang dolls house which has both hinges and one door knob intact…..one door knob is missing. Overall it is in a good original condition. This has been slightly stained green on one side (much has worn away) and the other side is in original brown stained condition. Not sure which Tri-ang house this came from but is larger than the normal 1/16th scale. It may be a side sun porch door or an internal door. Measures 4 1/2″high x 1 3/4″ wide.

Tri-ang Queen Anne Dolls House Staircase @ £19.50

Here is a rare opportunity to purchase a single wooden staircase with original red carpet covering the treads all the way plus two side walls, that came from a Tri-ang Queen Anne Dolls House. In a good played with condition. Not sure if the wallpaper either side is original and on the left wallpaper, there is some tearing, as seen in photo. In a good played with condition. This simply slots into your dolls house. Measures 6 3/8″ high, the width of the stair walls are 2 1/4″ and the length of each side wall is 6 3/8″.
