*All items on this page are from the 1960s and are 1/16th scale.
*In the early 1960s Tri-ang brought out a Spot-On range of dolls house furniture and accessories which consisted of metal and plastic components. In fact the metal spiked legs on much of the furniture could easily take someone’s eye out and would most definitely not pass our stringent health & safety standards of modern times.
*In the mid 1960s the Spot-On range was phased out and the Jenny’s Home range was introduced in conjunction with the November 1965 issue of Homes & Gardens magazine. This range had no more pointed legs but child friendly alloy legs instead plus far more plastic components.
*Tri-ang furniture was actually quite expensive to buy in the 1960s and certainly not pocket money prices as were other brands available at the time. By the early 1970s this furniture range disappeared.
*Nowadays Tri-ang furniture and accessories are highly sought after and becoming very collectable.

Vintage Tri-ang CEX Plastic Kitchen Unit @ £10.50
Here is a vintage all plastic kitchen unit from a Tri-ang CEX dolls house, which I understand were available from 1958 onwards, into the 1960s. So, if you have a Tri-ang CEX dolls house that is missing its kitchen unit, here is a good opportunity to purchase a replacement. This comes as one whole moulded fixed piece, with moulded electric cooker and sink detail plus cupboards. All doors and drawer detail are imitation and for effect only ie. they do not open. A nice touch is the tiny space for the grill. Overall this is in a good played with condition. Measures 5 1/4″ wide x 1 3/8″ deep x 2 3/8″ back height.
