Kay's Mail Order Catalogue Listings

Member Ruth Keyworth has visited the University of Worcester Research Collections, which holds a collection of Kays mail order catalogues. With the assistance of the Research and Development Librarian, Mr Roger Fairman, she has searched Kays catalogues from 1937 - 2006, and photographed the dolls houses and dolls house furniture listed for sale within them. Kay & Co Ltd had warehouses throughout the UK in the second half of the 20th century, and its mail order business was very successful. This album provides both a snapshot of the dolls houses available to customers over the years, and provides dating evidence for particular models. Dolls houses mostly appeared in the catalogues issued for the Autumn-Winter season, when Christmas shopping would occur.
