*Eric Lehrman based in London, manufactured under the name of the “Pit-A-Pat Toy Company” from about 1933 to 1940 and during that time produced at least 130 different items for the dolls house. These items are highly sought after and very collectable.
These gorgeous items, in my opinion, can be used perfectly well with both vintage 1/16th or vintage 1/12th scale dolls houses even though they differ in scale. I have put the measurements to help you decide for yourself. Many antique 1930s dolls houses that these were made for at that time, were often created in a mismatch of scales anyway, unlike nowadays where scale is far more precise.
Items on this page may differ in scale but could be used in both 1/16th scale and 1/12th scale vintage dolls houses. Please check measurements before ordering.
Pit-a-Pat Cutlery Canteen @ £45.00 SOLD
Here is a rather lovely antique dark stained wooden c1930s Pit-a-Pat cutlery canteen on legs, with lift up legs and felt interior. The so very 1930s decal is still on the inside of the lid and is an attractive feature. Overall, this is in a reasonably good played with condition. However the decal which should be on the lid, plus the Pit-a-Pat label are long gone. Also it looks like the hinges have had some replacement nails in the old hinges? There is no cutlery. Measures 2 3/4″ wide x 1 3/4″ deep x 2 1/2″ high. Nice item.

Suitable for 1/12th scale dolls house or old house where scale does not matter
c1930s Pit-a-Pat Fireplace @ £35.00
Here is an instantly recognisable dark stained wooden 1930s Pit-a-Pat fireplace with distinctive wooden beading down each side (the left piece has been fixed just ever so slightly off centre but hardly noticeable), metal decorative grate and a bright red rexine backing behind the grate. On the back is the original red and black paper Pit-a-Pat label. There appears to be a round bulb size hole cut from the backing panel behind the rexine but not sure what that was for as the rexine covers it? In relatively good played with condition. Measures 4 1/2″ wide x 3 1/8″ high x 1 1/4″ at deepest point (ie. mantelpiece)

Suitable for either 1/12th or possibly 1/6th scale dolls house

The rectangular mirror above the useful shelf is a little tarnished. On the back you can just see the remnants of a red Pit-a-Pat red and black paper label. Overall, this is in a good played with condition. Measures 4 1/2″ high x 2 1/2″ wide x 1 1/2″ deep.
