Past & Present
A website and ezine about dolls' houses: antique, vintage and modern.
Plus furniture and accessories.
For the past few years I have been restoring dolls houses. My particular interest is in the restoration of scratch built houses which had been so loved once and forgotten in time.

Thank you! I can do a bit of digging along this idea too. I uploaded a few more photos too :)

I recently bought a house to restore and while I was cleaning it up I found a makers mark:
I'd love to know more about this house. Based on the materials used in the build I would date it between 1950-1980. Likely 70s. This is becaue the screws used have a domed top, which I believe help date it to pre-1980.
My intention is to discover more about the house itself, it seems certain that it was based on a real place at the time as there is both a front and back door, and the house opens on the side- clearly a custom build for a purpose. I'd love to know any more about the maker too, but so far my searches have been unhelpful. Any help much appreciated!
I've included a couple of photos here:
