The eBay seller states that the set was bought from The London Dollshouse Company, Covent Garden, which closed some years ago. Artisan-made miniatures were sold in the shop. I think that the maker of the suite sold on eBay was most probably Anne Funnell, who traded as Lenham Pottery Models, now retired. She made many styles of traditional and modern bathroom fittings over the years, including designs with impressed shell decorations, as this eBay suite has. They were expensive to buy! (Elizabeth La Pla (ELF Miniatures) still has a few of Anne's modern designs on her website - a toilet is £70.00. a bath £85.00)


Miniaturist needleworker Janet Granger's dolls house bathroom has a Lenham suite, with many similarities to the eBay one in question:

although the shape of the washbasin is different.


Lili-Anne Bathrooms are similar Victorian ware, but in cast resin, not porcelain. Their original maker has sold the rights to Lili-Anne Bathrooms to Dolls House Direct who sell them through their eBay shop. The individual fittings are available as kits: wash basin, eBay ID 231898972207 (£29.90); toilet, 331760241062 (£35.95) and bath, 232388332214 (£36.50). The same items are also available fully finished and assembled: wash basin, 331685860558 (£42.50) and toilet, 331799482079 (£65.50). The bath is available in two finishes: white, 331925564449 (£69.95) or black, 232035319415 (£72.95).


Sussex Crafts produce fully finished cast resin Victorian sanitary ware, which is a bit more expensive than ready-assembled Lili-Anne:

The prices of ready-assembled Lili-Anne and Sussex Crafts bathroom suites are comparable to those of Lenham Pottery Models.

Thank you for your replies, I will still keep looking as I need the high rise cistern with that sort of pipework. I will have a look at the links.
