Dolls' Houses Past & Present
Hi I am Noelene from New Zealand. I have been collecting old dolls and dolls houses for over 40 years.
I don't have any very old houses, but have five made between 1950's and the 1970's, my favourite being my 1970's Lundby which I bought complete from a lady who had had it from childhood. I also have two Triang houses which I really like, a Petite Princess house and a GeeBee Cottage. I have a house I made and furnished from just a bare shell, a house which I bought from New Zealander Carole Perry, which has my few old bits and pieces in it plus several pieces, mainly in the dining room, made by Carole in the late 1970's early 1980's and a shop made by another New Zealand maker, Robert Hutching, which I bought in an local internet auction and which I need to restore.
