Photos for Jazz to see

« Back to Album Photo 1 of 5 Previous | Next
If you go to the photos of 'Jazz's Pride and Joy' you will see that ours are nearly the same but mine has a garage and I have hunted high and low for the make but can't find it anywhere - and I see that no one has the answer for Jazz's either- odd! Only just got it along with another Triang 62 so got work to do on both more on the Triang 62 than this one though. Will put photos on of that for any advice!

Hi Lottie, did you ever find out more about your this house. I recently bought one very like it, as you can see from my signature photo, but no garage.

'Dolly Mixture' is a name that Marion Osborne coined in her A-Z 1914-1941 book, for several models of dolls house which appeared to be made by one manufacturer, but which she had not, and no-one still has, found with a manufacturers name on or in a manufacturers catalogue. Some do appear in a trade catalogue (an agent's catalogue, that is), but the manufacturer is not identified. So, we don't know who made them. Quite possibly they were made by one of the dolls house manufacturers whose names we know, but whose products weren't pictured in the references - but until we find definitive evidence, these houses go by the name 'Dolly Mixture'.

Just to confuse the picture more, known houses of this style, with twin gables and a central entrance (with or without a garage at the end) have enough differences to suggest that more than one manufacturer offered it, so we may be looking for more than one name!

Dolly Mixtures - hhmm, seem to be puzzling a lot of us, so goggled it and there on KT Miniatures site is a Dolly Mixture House and it is very similar to mine (mine has bay windows - that is the only difference) around the 1930's. I have just posted this on Forums but I am going to email KT Miniatures and ask them about Dolly Mixture Houses and see if they can put on a bit on here about them if they are allowed! Fingers crossed. X

I have a similar house to this but half the size, and it looks like a triang 60. It has a similar toggle at the back for the electrics, and has been horribly over painted with gloss paint. I have started to chhip away at it but havn't touched it for a while. I sent some pictures to Marion Osbourne, and she couldn't identify it either and said that it was possibly a 'Dolly Mixture'. What I am curious about is what does 'Dolly Mixture ' mean? As it is always written in inverted commas.

I saw one of these for sale in a second hand shop (expensive for the condition so didn't buy). I spent ages trying to work out what it was too.

You will probably never know for sure who the maker is but I am pretty certain it wasn't Triang. The windows are Romside and they were readily available and are often found in home made houses. Some of the small manufacturers used them too. Maybe you have a "dolly mixture" !!!!

I had one of these once but it didn't have the beams around the upper windows, just on the gables.
