I hope I'm not breaking the discussion rule by pointing out this item on ebay, but as it's in the US and as it's a fairly -- ahem -- niche item, I thought it would be all right. (Just delete please if not, Zoe and Rebecca). It's an old miniature German dentist's surgery, complete with tiny but still rather terrifying instruments! Just think what tortures could be inflicted upon the tiny tots of Greconville, Rosemary!

Fascinating! Makes my teeth squeak just looking at it!

Hi Jane. You're not breaking any rules as the item is listed in the 'Dolls' Miniatures and Houses' section and you are not commenting on any selling practices. Also, the item is for sale on a Buy It Now basis so the sale price won't be affected by additional interest.


Phew! That out of the way, isn't it lovely and, as you say, scary! Let's hope there is NOT a budding dentist amongst the residents of Greconville...

My Dad was a dentist and his surgery looked just like this one!

I wish I had been able to afford it, but it has sold now so it should be open for appointments soon!  It is wonderful!

Looks like a dolls house from hell to me - only to be compared with the Maternity Hospital dolls house that we saw and  discussed quite a few years ago....shudder.....

Although I wouldn't give room to either I do realise that they are little pieces of social history, and  are most admirable for that......

I like the old German Butchers shops, and I've seen somewhere a fabulous dolls house that is like a two storey library in a stately home......

If I did a house to reflect MY history - ie: the house I grew up in in 60s, early 70s it would look such a mess!.  I suppose it would have been a cheap version of a Lundby house with all dark post war Barton furniture upstairs and a G Plan downstairs, combined with few bits of Victorian stuff from Mums old home.  We had a chrome and black vinyl swivel  chair next to an inlaid Victorian What Not I remember....  I don't think it would make a very attractive dolls house....

I do have a little Triang house that is actually just about what my elderly Aunts house was like- she was over twenty years older than my Mum though - I remembe it very well.

Has anyone actually created a dolls house thats like the house they grew up in?

Like yours Wendy, my childhood home was not furnished attractively enough for me to want to reproduce it. But I would like to build a dolls house version of the second house we lived in, a very beautiful 1930s house. I have some exterior photos, but none of the interior, which is a pity, as it had very nice fireplaces not all of which I can reamember clearly enough.
