About Pit-a-Pat

*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.

c1930s Pit-a-Pat Wardrobe @ £39.00

Here is a lovely wooden Pit-a-Pat wardrobe in a dark stained finish, with opening door that reveals original hanging rods on both interior side edges, plus it still has the two hanging hooks (ie. one from each rod). The original red bead handle is fully intact, so too the red & black Pit-a-Pat label on the back. Overall this is in a relatively good played with condition,  however there is some wear and some scuffing, plus there is a manufacturers  fault in that there is a weeny gap in join on the far right hand side (see photo).  I only noticed this when photographing so I think I can deem that it is hardly noticeable! Measures 3 1/8″ wide x 4 3/4″ high x 1 5/8″ deep

c1930s Pit-a-Pat Dressing Table (Missing Mirror) @ £29.50

Here is an opportunity to purchase a lovely dark stained 1930s Pit-a-Pat dressing table  at a greatly reduced bargain  price. Ok,  the reason being that the mirror is long gone (these often dropped off over the years as the glue deteriorated and lost grip) but if you could find either a vintage or even modern day rectangular handbag mirror(measuring approx. 3″ x 2″) to fix in the vacant space, then this could look fantastic! This has two opening drawers that still have the original red beaded handles.  Even the red and black Pit-a-Pat label is still on the reverse.  Apart from the missing mirror, this is in a good played with condition, just a little scuffing on the left side panel. Measures 3″ wide x 2″ deep x 4 1/2″ high.
