Tri-ang Dolls Houses Database, Vol. 3, 1946-1971Sign In or Register to add photos
This is Volume 3 of the Lines Bros' Tri-ang database, covering the years from 1946 to 1971. Please see Volume 1 for models produced between 1919 and 1930, plus some designs from the later 1930s, which, stylistically have more in common with the 1920s models. Volume 2 overs the majority of the houses from 1930 - 1941, including those for which production resumed after WWII but which first appeared before 1941. (Manufacture of Tri-ang dolls houses was suspended from 1941 until 1946). This volume covers the designs which were first introduced from 1946 until 1971, when the Lines Bros firm ceased to trade. Members are invited to add pictures of Tri-ang houses to the appropriate Volume. They can be uploaded directly by members, whose details will then appear in the captions, or pictures can be emailed to site administrator Brooksey for uploading. (In the first instance, please contact Brooksey via her Profile page). These three volumes will help members or site visitors with identifying houses, and with restoration queries. For this database, the pictures for any one house should be limited to one exterior and one interior shot. Further photos, showing more detail, should be posted in a separate Album and viewers guided to that Album in the captions. The houses are (almost always) listed in order of their first appearance in a Lines Bros'/Tri-ang catalogue. Exceptions are houses such as the Princess 2, which follows the entry for the Princess, despite not having been produced until five years later. This has been done to keep all the versions of similar houses together. Following the listing of the houses, there is a section at the end of the Album for details from Tri-ang houses which may also help collectors with dating or restoration. Enormous thanks are due to Marion Osborne, for her invaluable work in researching and cataloguing Lines Bros' Tri-ang houses, and whose book, "The Book of Tri-ang Dolls' Houses 1919-1971" is a constant source of reference when editing this Album. Please contact Brooksey with any further information on Tri-ang houses for this database. Correction of inaccuracies in already posted database captions is welcome!
