c1930s Tri-ang Dolls House No.62 With Window Boxes SOLD
Here is a lovely antique Tri-ang dolls house (Model No. 62) with window boxes. This very pretty variation of the No.62 was believed to have only been around for a short time during the years of 1937 and 1938.
The hand painted floral and tree imagery around the window boxes is truly beautiful and really makes this something very special indeed. It is refreshing to still have all interior wall and flooring papers, tiled effect roofing, interior doors, exterior front door with metal letter box plus door knocker, and all metal windows. All metal windows open, apart from the one single window next to the front door. There are four rooms, with a central interior staircase leading from the larger of the downstairs room, up to the larger room upstairs. The garage has the original green wooden doors and brick papered floor. Sadly both the chimneys are long gone, they would have originally slotted into the two fixing holes on the roof. The metal Tri-ang label that would have been nailed to the back, is also no longer present.
Many of the windows have the original fabric curtains, albeit a little faded and grubby. The four light bulbs are still present in the back walls and wiring too, but I strongly recommend that the wiring would need changing. There are the two original hook and eye metal fasteners on the frontage.
Overall, this is in a good played with condition, there is some wear to the woodwork and scuffing to the roof. There is also a hint of some water damage to the left-hand interior walls ie. a couple of patches of brown staining on the wallpapers. But these patches are so minor that they can easily be hidden by furniture. There is a little rust on the metal window frames, all windows open apart from the single window next to the front door. The single window next to the front door still has the fixture nails but it has had some glue added around the inside of the frame for extra strength. The metal hinges on the frontage are the original hinges but are heavily rusty. Although they are still fixed to the dolls house, they are very stiff from non-use and the rust. These may benefit from a little attention. It measures 26 ¾” wide x just over 10 ½” deep x 16” high.
