    is thrilled to present


    This lovely dolls’ house came to us in a rather sorry state, complete with mouse droppings. But, after some careful cleaning and with the addition of a wall in the top floor to make another bedroom space, it is ready to be played with again.
    The external brick paper has been patched, floors and ceilings painted, walls papered with mid century-inspired papers, and a real wooden floor laid in the sitting room. While we are not sure when the house was made, all the furniture dates from the 1950’s and 60’s, while the accessories are a mix of old and new. In the children’s bedroom, there’s American Strombecker bunkbeds and antique chest of drawers; in the double bedroom a matching, bed and mirrored drawers. (Note: all our bedding is handmade, hand-washable, and often crafted from vintage fabrics.)
    The sitting room’s furniture is all craftsman made, from the seating to the storage units, albeit by different makers. Note the stretched-canvas “painting” on the left wall. And all the soft furnishings are handmade and hand-washable. In the kitchen, all items are factory-made with the exception of the wall shelves. The dining set is by Strombecker, while the amazing metal kitchen is from the German manufacturer, Fuchs. Please note the vintage packaging, the fabulous copper pans, the mop, and lovely array of white ceramic china.
    The doll family come from two manufacturers – Kenner and Suzanne Gibson; their clothes are stored in the drawers of their bedrooms.
    And last but not least, there are seven LED battery-operated light fittings within the house, operated by individual little switches. All in all, we are delighted to show you our unique creation - a stylish, mid-century modern townhouse for our dolls to inhabit.

      Very nice I love it and the Strombecker furniture is wonderful and I usually associate it with Vogue Ginny Dolls . Oh and that wall paper so mod and kind of a groovy look . Fantastic job !

      This is fantastic! Great job. I particularly like the styling of it, and like Manikin I love the groovy wallpaper.

      Thanks for your kind comments and thanks to someone for putting this in the right section! You're right re Strombecker furniture btw, it was made during that heyday of 8"-10" dolls, the 1950s and early 1960s, and happily, it's the perfect scale for this house. Thanks again, will try to add another in due course.
