Contact: Please contact member Piera Buckland by private message.

Added: 10 Jan 2021

Item Description

Rare Lines Bros (Triang) dolls house for sale. 
6 rooms on 2 floors. 
I have been told by a collector that it looks like the DH/11 Riverside cottage.
The house has been in my family for 2 generations so it is well used and needs renovating and some love and care. It's a great project for someone, hence the price. The house is 90cm wide x 90 cm high (At the highest point of the chimney). 

I live in Camden, London and would like the dolls house collected, however if someone is local and without a car I would consider dropping it off or working something out.

Item Description

Volume 1 of Liza's lavishly illustrated history of Baby & Dolls’ Houses
and the makers of their furnishings

This book provides a vibrant and revealing insight into the world of antique dolls’ houses. A passion for antique dolls’ houses, 18th and 19th century interiors and wallpapers, architecture and social history has been the inspiration for the writing of this book. Liza Antrim is one of the leading experts in her field. Trained as a picture restorer, she has brought her skills to bear on dolls’ houses which have suffered from generations of play and ‘improvements’. The result is a record of authentic period interiors that are hardly ever seen in the full scale world, a fascinating window into the past. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book reveals previously unseen houses, many with original contents and decorations. Original and important research into several newly discovered English makers and toymen makes this an indispensable work of reference.
