Tiny doll on floor has 'Made in England' on its back. Doll on the right is marked "Roddy Made in New Zealand". https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=148584494 148584494 On-Line Auction Finds These four items were among a lot I got on TradeMe for NZ$8.50 (which also included Tootsie Toy furniture and an old plastic typewriter pencil sharpener). Fan and tea urn unmarked. Globe is by Chad Valley. Have seen a similar thermometer on American auction site described as Antique German Doll House Miniature Gilt Metal Art Nouveau Thermometer. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=148584495 148584495 Piano & Painting Piano is a fairly small scale, 2.5 inches high. Music sheet has Protex Polka on it.

Half inch scale - so cute. I like the small size of these. Would like to collect some more Tootsie Toy items and do a small house. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=148584498 148584498 Chinese Mudmen https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=149053505 149053505 The Laurels https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=149203941 149203941 Cardboard House An old slot together cardboard dollshouse with open back. The box lies flat to become the base of the house. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161941101 161941101 Gilt Thermometer A separate photo of the antique gilt thermometer. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161941102 161941102 Too Cute Couldn't resist this little china dog when I saw him in an antique shop. He made me smile. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161941889 161941889 Old Brass Clock and Candle in Holder I got these in a quaint little antique shop in New Zealand. (One of Jane's favourite shops). I think the little clock was probably a charm as it has a little loop on top. It has little red 'stones' at the base and at the back is little cogs. The detail is really lovely. I love the little brass candle holder too. Really nicely made. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161941890 161941890 Vases I picked up the two little black vases on a New Zealand online auction site. They are really dainty and only 2cm high. I love them. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=161941891 161941891 Japanese Miniatures Recently picked up china doll in kimono, cupboard, table and desk from a New Zealand on-line auction site. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=173903802 173903802 The Laurels - Nursery I have now wallpapered the nursery in The Laurels and have picked up a few vintage items and a few new items that will fit in for now to decorate it. I need to paint the white dolls house. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=173903803 173903803 Tekno Miniatures These are some Tekno miniatures from Denmark. I think from around the 1920s. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=173903804 173903804 Some of the Residents of The Laurels Some of the residents of The Laurels, including a small Pudding doll possibly from late 1880s. These were baked into cakes and puddings on special occasions. It was believed if you found one of these in your pudding it would bring you good luck (or a broken tooth). It is only 1 inch long. Very cute. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=177350761 177350761 G Baxter Prints They are both from around 1850. They were printed by a Le Blond & Co who took a licence from Baxter in 1849. These particular prints were from a set of 10 small images called 'The Fancy Set'. They were meant to be cut into single prints and used on the lids of small boxes containing sewing needles, which were highly popular at the time.

It is about 42 cm tall to the point of the roof. It needs a bit of a clean and is missing its chimney, a couple of clear windows, a yellow shutter and yellow door but all in all it is in pretty good condition for its age. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=177833040 177833040 Toyworks House Interior photo.

Five boxes of Protex plastic Dolly's Furniture, made by Plastic Moulders (NZ) Ltd, Auckland. The box is the same as the Kleeware box so I am assuming this firm had the New Zealand licence. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=179186001 179186001 Dining Room https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=179186002 179186002 Sitting Room https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=179186003 179186003 Kitchen One chair is broken in this set.
