c1950s Tri-ang No 61 Dolls House
This is a nice example of a circa 1950s Tri-ang No 61 Dolls House, front opening with one small room downstairs and one long room upstairs, plus a garage with opening double doors. The house is of wooden construction with all opening metal windows and interior intact. The original opening wooden side kitchen door is also present via the porch, so too the bench at the back of the porch.
Remnants of the label is still visible on the back and you can see there is the battery hole for lighting, but the wiring and bulbs are long gone. The roof is in excellent condition and appears to be in original condition, so too the stencilling on the front. However I am of the opinion that the exterior has been given a simple coat of off white emulsion – almost identical to the original, and cleverly painted around the front stencilling and around the original fixtures and fittings. There is some aging to the exterior left side wall where there is some slight crinkling of the original wood. However the interior floor and wallpapers appear to be original, and the floral wallpapers are quite pretty indeed. It is so refreshing to have them still present.
The chimney and front steps are no longer present, which is often commonly found with this model dolls house, as they would have been completely loose separate components so over the years were so easily mislaid. But this is a lovely clean and solid example of this popular tiny 1/16th scale 1950s Tri-ang dolls house.
Measures just under 19″ wide at base x 10 3/4″ deep at base x 16 1/2″ high.
Recommended to be collected in person from me here in Thame (Oxfordshire) at a mutually agreed time, but this could also be posted within the UK by Parcelforce if necessary.
